Experience

I hold an undergraduate degree in English/Economics (B.A. Louisiana State University, 1966), a Masters in Teaching (M.A.T., Northwestern University, 1974) and I completed all requirements for the Phd (save the Dissertation) in Special Education and Instructional Design (University of Oregon, 1980).

Teaching Approach

Regarding my online English classes, my students love them because I teach English grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation in a conversational context with instruction geared to a student's proficiency level. My classes are demanding but fun. My homework assignments, tailored to each student, prove pertinent and helpful.

INSTRUCTION: I tailor my instruction to your specific goals for learning English. I use a lexical approach in my vocabulary teaching in a conversation format and I invite listening, speaking, writing and pronunciation practice as needed. I can build or locate a glossary of vocabulary words for intensive instruction with you--words that have a high frequency of use in your profession. I also have wide access to instructional materials that I can share with you at no expense to you. I take a personal interest in my students and frequently I assign homework which I edit/grade for my students and/or I send articles/websites I know will be of interest to students.
