Living in America makes English a necessary language to embrace as well as exercise. Speaking as well as writing can be done in both an academic and artistic manner! As long as the basics of have been ingrained, using the English language can become a powerful extension of your unique personality and experiences!
It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.
Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound

For a writing lesson, for example, I first talk to the student and review a writing sample or assignment to assess what skills need to be targeted. Then I address each skill in its logical order. For example, the student first needs to understand the purpose of the assignment and its specific requirements. The next stage might require how to approach and analyze a text and then how to organize, revise, and edit the writing. Throughout this process, I check for the student's understanding.

Students can expect help with the English language skills they most need to strengthen to communicate better with native English speakers. For some it is listening comprehension; for others it may be finding the right words. Many need help with email correspondence for their job. Whatever the level and whatever your goals, we can improve your performance and confidence in using English.
I have always loved language and, from childhood, have had a fascination with other cultures, so my career in English as Second Language has been a great way to combine those two interests.
I spend a lot of time planning a curriculum and lessons for each student, based on that student’s level and goals and addressing that student’s unique language needs in his/her life.
I never charge for the first meeting because that is a time for me to learn about you, your English, your needs and goals.
Among my passions are growing fruits and vegetables, folk dancing and cooking, but working with my student

She was my first ESL teacher when I was in college. She had extensive experience with foreign students and knew how to apply her professional teaching skills to individual students to maximize each students' potential abilities by repeatedly correcting mistakes in detail.
She handed out her own material every week and her material is by far the essence of English for ESL students. Once I went through her materials with her for about a year, my English has improved incredibly.
She is open mind and patient so do not rush students to get anxiety. She is my lifetime companion and the best teacher.
I am confident to recommend her. Do not miss the chance of a lifetime to meet the greatest English teacher.

For 25+ years I've worked with kids from elementary to high school in grammar, writing, and reading. I've had experience in writing and editing and turning kids from non-writers into writers. We'll learn a lot and have fun doing it!
If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, I can help! (Except for the one about the football; maybe your student should try pumping iron or something.)
I've worked with kids in math and English for many years, including my own (my wife and I have four graduates), and I enjoy making subjects fun and interesting with students, while we get the job done.
Some valuable learning, a pat on the back, and a shot of confidence: that's what I offer to families. Thanks for checking me out!
English lessons with me will be fun, humorous, and something to remember. Lets work together to accomplish your goals. I want to make you great!
