Private ESL Teacher

I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

"Tell them and they will forget , show them and they may remember, involve them and they will understand." This is the philosophy by which I plan my English language classes. I incorporate real life reading material, listening material and functional speaking role plays into my lessons.

Before starting lessons with me, I will call to discuss your specific English learning goals. Do you want to focus on Speaking Accent, Conversation, Listening, Writing, Reading, etc. I will then tailor each lesson just for you.

I also teach Business English to students and business professionals. I teach children as well.

I already had an advanced level of English, however I still needed to work on some of the nuances and prepositions in the language. Bryce has helped me immensely.
