TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught beginning-intermediate and multi-level adult ESL classes for over 6 years. I have also worked as a substitute teacher in almost all grade levels, with the most time in 4th grade, middle school, and high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love planning lessons on topics related to my students' interests and needs. The best lessons are relevant, engaging, and integrate multiple skills while examining a topic, so students have multiple opportunities to use the new vocabulary or structures in different ways. I always try to provide a variety of types of practice to accommodate different student learning styles and preferences.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in history (with highest honors), University of California, Santa Cruz. California adult ESL designated subjects credential; 120 hour TEFL certificate.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm fascinated by languages, literature, history, biology, cultures-- learning or teaching about almost anything. I'm fluent in English and Spanish, and have studied a little Chinese as well. I love to see children or adults get excited about learning and find that they can communicate in a new language-- with all the doors that opens. Now I have a website teaching English, www.Englishhints.com (as well as a daughter teaching high school English) and try to create lessons and practice activities that will help students become fluent in English-- and enjoy using it.
