Teaching since:
September 2003

I'm an expert, advanced level English/ESL teacher of over 10 years experience. I received my first degree, a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Music, from the University of Oregon in 1980, and in 2002 I concluded a Teacher Training Program through Northwest Christian College and acquired licenses to teach ESL and middle school maths -in which I was rated Highly Qualified. After a year of substitute teaching in Hillsborough, I relocated to St Paul Island AK, where I taught math and music.

From 2007-2015 I taught English in Prague, in the Czech Republic I speak Czech (a Slavic language, related to Russian and Polish) at an intermediate level, as well as a little bit of French and Italian. As an English teacher, my specialities are building your vocabulary, making grammar understandable and helping you learn to love writing!

Experience

English as a Second Language teacher
Sep 2007 - Jun 2015
Krystof Learning Center, Prague, the Czech Republic

At the Krystof school I taugh students from 7 years of age to adults. Some were at a very beginning level, others required high level conversation and writing. With children I designed creative activities for language learning, as well as using songs and games. With adults I used authentic materials, such as newspapers and current movies, as well as preparing them for various certification tests.
