I have taught at both the elementary and high school levels. I also homeschooled my own children for seven years. I have taught high school English and SAT/ACT prep courses. I have also taught English as a Second Language for several years at schools in France, Hungary, and Slovakia.
I like to engage students and find creative ways for students to have fun while they are learning. I definitely encourage students to use their creativity and dare to be wrong and try new things in their pursuit of knowledge.
Every time a student learns something new, takes on a new challenge, or has fun tackling a new concept - that is a true reward for me.
