I have taught ESL and Spanish for over twenty years for all ages and all levels. I also teach ESL Methods and Materials for K-12 endorsement. My favorite age group is young adult, but I have materials for all ages--and I find I can use the same materials with a bit of tweaking to fit any age!
I am a very hands-on teacher who really likes variety and student interaction. I try to present grammar in a fun and easy manner and then give students the opportunity to try it out in activities where they don't realize they're learning. I find that teaching vocabulary and grammar in context is the most effective way to help students retain what they learn. In my classroom, we play games, do group work and pair work, integrate"real" language from the country and have meaningful communication.
