TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have seven years of experience teaching ESOL in public schools. In that time I've worked at several elementary schools and a middle school. Most of that time was in Virginia, where I worked extensively to connect my lessons to the Virginia Standards of Learning. Most of my K-12 materials are designed to make grade-level standards accessible to English language learners. Currently, I'm in my second year teaching English as a Foreign Language at a public university in Turkey. My students here are undergraduates who are planning to become English teachers. My higher education materials are designed to improve fluency and promote communicative competence.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I approach teaching like an equation. I start by figuring out what end product I want, what I want my students to be able to accomplish, then I look at where they're starting from and work backwards to create the materials needed to get them where I want them to be.
