About Me

Experience Summary

Most recently I have worked as a reading specialist. I have over 25 years of experience as an English as a Second/Foreign Language educator. I have taught at all levels k-12, as well as University. I have extensive experience teaching at the adult level and enjoy working with adult learners. Currently I am a private consultant with a focus on reading and learning - particularly learners with special needs.

Teaching Style

I am a learner-centered instructor. When working with an individual I try to understand his or her learning approaches and needs. I believe that I work well with alternative learners and with young adults who may be disaffected with conventional educational methods. I particularly enjoy working with adults and feel that I often learn so much more from them than what I am able to offer. When working with adult learners I respect that their personal lives and needs may intersect with our instructional time. Frequently I will incorporate whatever is going on in their lives into our current "curriculum."
