"I have been teaching in Kentucky Public Schools for ten years, and am currently teaching Senior English to the ESL population at a local High School. I have worked with all ages and proficiency levels. Before beginning my work in Public Schools, I taught English at WKU and UofL, specializing in Grammar, Writing, and Reading. I taught English for a year abroad in Austria at Middle and High School levels, and tutored multiple students looking to improve their English skills. I also currently teach a Senior Writing course designed to help English Learners in their creative and mechanical writing capacities.

I enjoy working with you people, imparting to them a love of language in general and English in particular. As an ESL teacher, I am well aware of the power of language and I strongly believe in the helping students open the doors of opportunity via effective communication skills.

I am highly qualified to teach English language and Literature. I have a deep, abiding love for both the mechanics and the delivery of writing. I specialized in English Literature during my first Master’s degree. I work well with teens and Elementary-aged students alike.

I have lived in a German speaking land for over two years, and I taught there on an Fulbright Scholarship. I am very familiar with not only the language but also the culture. I use my German on a daily basis, and I am a big proper pronunciation and accent, as this was the key to my own success living abroad. The natives are a lot kinder to you when you sound like them!

I look forward to working with you!" less...
