I began teaching in the late 90s as a home-school educator. I later obtained a certification of English as a second language and now teach and tutor English and Science in private schools, and language centers. Teaching experience includes American and foreign International schools, and language schools, teaching English and Science to middle school and high students, tutoring at 4th-Adult levels.
I integrate computer assisted virtual learning tools, and white board activities, as supplements to conventional learning. This includes online labs, with simulated experiments, power point presentations, technology centered activities and projects where useful, as well as classroom art, music, writing and role playing activities. I also utilize significant literacy and creative writing into Science projects, which I've found students really enjoy, when mixed with competition. I encourage critical thinking and engaging discussion in both Science and English, and integrate news events, opinion, and even ethics into discussions, especially for high school students. I also use advance learning and understanding in building literacy in language learning as we listen, communicate, build vocabulary, increase writing skills, memory and speaking.
