TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught mostly English classes in middle school, junior high school, and senior high school. I have worked with basic level, regular, advanced, and advanced placement. One year I taught alternative school for students who had been expelled from public school. I have one year's experience with 4th grade and several classes at National College, including composition, literature, math, critical thinking.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Most of my teaching methods focus on self-discovery or small-group cooperative learning. I establish a learning goal, then preview, study or read, review, assess learning, re-learn when necessary, and incorporate higher-level thinking with projects or discussion.
