About Tutor


My journey into foreign language began when I was young. At eighteen years of age, I learned how to speak Spanish by association and interaction with native speakers. Thereafter, I attended a university and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in both Spanish and French. I completed a certification program for translators. I attended graduate school to complete my Master of Arts degree in Secondary Foreign Language Education and English as a Second Language. My published master's thesis is entitled, Computer Assisted Instruction-Its Value to Second Language Learners. In addition, I have written books entitled, On the BALL- A Language Learning Program for Adults, Get the BALL Going-A Collection of Language Teaching Ideas from The Language Professor, The BALL is in your Court-Learning a Foreign Language, How to Learn a Foreign Language-A Question and Answer Resource Guide. I have gained several years of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), Spanish, French, and German in public schools.

I am a university instructor who teaches bilingual, ESL, and global language methodology courses. I continue my studies in curriculum and instruction, conducts research, and develops language learning materials. Since many curriculum developers are not teachers, I hope my perspective as an educator will contribute substantially to the field of language education.

Experience

I have over 20 years’ experience as a state-certified teacher. I teach children (grades 6-12) and adults online via Skype or Facebook video. I teach all aspects of language – reading, writing, listening, speaking, conversation, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation / accent reduction. I can help you improve your English skills and reach your language goals.

Teaching Approach

Learn by doing. I believe students need to have plenty of practice speaking and using the language.
