TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching English in Japan in 2001. That experience as a foreigner gave me a personal insight into how useful language teachers can be, especially when one is immersed in a non-native culture and needs the dominant language to survive. Since then, I've primarily taught English Language Learners and find that the old cliche really is true: I learn as much from them as they learn from me. ELLs are the perfect group for that most satisfying of teaching experiences - that AHA! moment when a student's eyes alight as they understand something for the first time. I couldn't have chosen a more rewarding, enjoyable career!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students come to us with an extraordinary amount of knowledge and experience, some of which was gained in an academic setting. Many of my students are very well-educated or have had amazing experiences but lack basic English skills or school savvy. I often struggle to find materials that introduce very basic concepts - the English phonetic system for example - that don't look like they were created for much younger children. The materials I create for TpT will try to fill this gap - more advanced skills presented in an attractive manner that aren't "cutesy." (But I recognize that cutesy has it's place, too!)

I have been practicing yoga for about ten years, and just recently finished an intensive yoga teacher training program. I love introducing yoga to beginners; if you've never tried it, find a cheap class and go just once. You'll see what all the hype is about!
