TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching ESL/EFL since 1994 to adult language learners both in the U.S. and abroad. I spent 14 years overseas teaching in private language schools and universities in Indonesia, Thailand, and Turkey. Upon my return to the U.S. I began teaching at both a community college and a university IEP program. My concentration has been predominantly in teaching writing, grammar, and listening/speaking. I have also taught freshman level English composition courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style has transformed and adapted over the years. I originally focused on integrated skills when overseas. Once I returned to the States, the courses became more skill-based. Though I try to integrate skills in the classroom, often times lessons are focused on the skill I am teaching as well as the level of the learners. I prefer a student centered approach with variation in teacher-student, student-student, and group activities.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My final year in Turkey was spent working for a magazine focused on exam preparation for the Turkish National English Exam in Istanbul, Turkey. I spent the year writing practice exams for publication in ELS Magazine which was sold to schools throughout the country. My first year back in the U.S. I created PowerPoint presentations for a course in Cultural Competency intended for the military. This was work done for the Old Dominion University Research Foundation.
