Private ESL Teacher

After working with all levels of ESL ( English as a Second Language) students in the Netherlands for 15 years and now back in the USA with Asian college students since 2015, I am confident in my ability to help anyone to speak, hear, read and write English in a professional manner and level optimally. My Dutch students have won regional public speaking awards to participate nationally and with an extensive performing arts background, I am most expert in boosting any student's performance as an English speaker and/or writer in whatever subject my students choose.

About Abby

IMPORTANT NOTICES: AS much as I have enjoyed my Minnesota students, PLEASE NOTE that I am moving away from Mn. winters to the Phoenix Az. area at the end of September 2019 when I will be taking students ONLINE ONLY UNTIL November 2019, then my home studio will reopen.

** Because my private lessons are sporadically scheduled between other teaching, all lessons for age 12 and over are a minimum of one hour.

Due to my maternal grandfather's career as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of flute music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age

15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Broadway singer Adrian West, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Roland Wyatt- Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many years of teaching experience, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals/groups of all ages , styles, and levels, sing optimally from their hearts. The necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons (depending on one's previous experience), though integrating the technique into your own style can take longer and usually continues throughout one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from San Francisco State University, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including the last 15 years also working successfully as an ESL educator, I have gained the confidence to help almost any student achieve their educational and/or professional goals.

What sets me apart from other ESL teachers is that I'm a polyglot (Spanish, Portuguese, French) and I have taught English abroad. This allows me to have a better understanding of other cultures. I have also had the opportunity to help professionals from different disciplines such as doctors, lawyers, managers, architects, and even other teachers. I have also worked with companies such as Toyota, Motorola, and Brown Forman. I could describe my methodology as adaptive and interactive at the same time. This means that I can customize my lessons according to the individual learning needs of each student. Furthermore, I like to get creative with the student's interaction process by playing with the energy, changing the focus, changing the stimulus, or altering the form of delivery. I strongly support the theory that learning occurs best in an active rather than a passive environment.

I've been teaching various things for over 20 years, including teaching ESL to students internationally online and in person. My style is very encouraging and motivating. My approach is to focus on building skills in pronunciation and comprehension because it is critical for being able to clearly communicate. Conversational English is what my international student's tell me is their weakest area. They tell me they want to practice having conversations because they usually don't have native English speakers to talk with. I create a very relaxed and safe-to-make mistakes kind of environment. If you want to practice your conversational skills, let's chat. If you want to build your comprehension and other English skills, let's work together. I look forward to meeting you. See you in the classroom.

About Mardee

Welcome. I'm a mature teacher with a Master degree and TEFL certification. I've been teaching for over 20 years and love it. I am an enthusiastic and motivating teacher. I love to have fun and I enjoy teaching students of all levels. I have taught in the classroom and online for years. I love to travel to experience different cultures and learn from them, which is one reason I started teaching online to ESL students. I have work with students online from all over the world for a few years. Working online allows me to meet students I may not otherwise get to meet. It also allows me the freedom to work and travel. I plan to travel to Asia in October 2019 to meet some of my students I've been teaching for a couple of years.

My background in teaching spans many different topics, including K-12 teaching educational subjects and adults

in career development. Primarily I teach ESL students now and I ABSOLUTELY love it.

I'll see you in the classroom.
