I teach you the English no Native needed to learn at school. I have more than 25 years of experience teaching and tutoring adult students from around the world at a variety of competence levels, in several forums: tutoring centers, adult education and college. I am energetic and enthusiastic. I have been a top performer who gets results whether teaching ESOL in government funded programming, or Freshman and remedial composition to a diverse range of non-native speakers in the City University of New York. At my current position as ESOL Instructor, for eleven years I have been a top performer in Average Daily Attendance, Completion Rate and Student Level-Advancement. My students consistently perform well on the Best Plus test, designed by the Center of Applied Linguistics in Washington to measure student conversational English. For you, I am the English Language, living and breathing. My university education was in English Language and Literature. Speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation are all of piece in my teaching competency. Looking forward to helping you in this endeavor.
