I have taught English as a Second Language for 13 years and have worked with all ages, but my focus has been on high school level and adult education. I have extensive experience in test preparation as well particularly with the SAT, ACT, and ASVAB. I've worked as administrator at 2 different private schools as well. In addition, I have presented at a number of conferences served as the statewide president for Hawaii TESOL for several years.
My teaching style is very interactive. I teach using the communicative approach having students work in small groups. The focus is on getting them to speak as much as possible to improve their fluency.
