TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching ESL for 10+ years in a classroom setting and online for 3+ years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My lessons are largely task-based and communicative with collaboration and creative activities to boost confidence and fluency. My Grammar Guru is Betty Azar. I admire her style and celebrate her entire collection of resources. I currently teach ESL using the English File and Headway series, which I find to be digestable and cohesive. Many of my lessons are inspired by units from these course books for Beginner-Advanced levels. I've also used National Geographic and Speak Out books for advanced levels, and I detest them. They are torture for students and teachers, full of mistakes, and downright dry and boring. One star! I would hope that my products are the opposite of resources like that.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have received an award for Most Creative Teacher, 2014, and have been recognized repeatedly throughout my career for my innovation in the classroom and above average student satisfaction reports.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. degree in Applied Linguistics and TESL certification. I have a minor in Anthropology and a second minor in Illustration/Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am the owner and operator of Talkin' Town English, where I create content and offer private and group distance language coaching, classes, and resources.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
