I work with students who are learning about the Language to make conversation, read and write in English. I want to also fascilitate learning about the culture, going shopping, making medical appointments, becoming a citizen, filling out forms, or applying for jobs and college.
I have also worked with students who know the language, but need help with reading and writing.
I have been teaching English for more than 30 years in different educational programs. I have a Masters in Education and took a Certification for ESL at the Literacy Assistance Center. I am also trained to do the Best Plus 2 exam. I aslo received training for the Civics Exam, and therefore have a lot of material for the Citizenship exam.
I love being able to help a student progress with their language skills and get a job in their field; an a male adult who got a job as a mechanic with American Airlines, a woman who was able to speak to her doctor in English, instead of using an interpreter, get to a higher level in English, apply to get their GED, or get into college. I also feel very gratified, when a student can help another.
Another important thing for me, which gives me pleasure, is having a atmosphere, where the student is at ease. This is especially true with adults who are more insecure than children. it could be a simple greeting, providing a snack, or making a game with students to practice what they know.
