Take a lesson with a native English speaker! I help dedicated students and professionals improve their communication skills for every occasion. I provide the experience and encouragement needed, by assisting students in the advancement of their studies, careers, travels, or just for the fun of it. I began my partnership with TakeLessons™ in 2009. My teaching style is relaxed and offers a project-based curriculum, tailored to best fit the student's needs and schedule when possible. As a certified English teacher in curriculum and instruction, I ensure all my lessons are personalized for each student. Previously an elementary and post-secondary teacher, my concentration was helping students reach their full potential in the shortest amount of time. I offer quality online instruction that allows the students to relax and take in all the information using independent practice, modeling, and recall. ESL/ELL AP/ACT/SAT STUDENTS It's imperative that the student understands phonics as well as the parts of speech and sentence structure, i.e., syntax, tone, diction, use of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, etc. Students receive a step-by-step lesson plan or book with each lesson The study focuses on a specific aspect of language use, e.g., life skills, literacy, or vocational and workplace English competencies. Both approaches involve teaching students basic English skills, such as listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Lessons are based on the Common Core State Standards - Pronunciation techniques and tips - Independent practice for the workplace - Quizzes, textbooks, videos, and computer lessons - Basic communication with real-life interactions - Personalized Google Doc - Instant feedback! Classes place awareness of the students' culture and recognition of cultural differences which might affect a student's ability to acclimate to their English-speaking environment. We discuss goals to determine interest, learning style, and objectives - together creating a lesson plan designed for the individual student.
