About meI come from Silicon Valley in California. I have many years experience learning and teaching languages. I have always enjoyed learning and teaching languages ever since my first excursion abroad as a teenager. I have about 18 years experience teaching and tutoring E.F.L.( English as a Foreign Language ) in Taiwan, Thailand and China. Also, I have about 8 years experience tutoring my fellow Americans in French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and beginners' Chinese. I attended S.F.S.U. in San Francisco. I received my B.A. in European languages from Northumbria University in England. I studied Chinese at National Taiwan University, French at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, and German at the University of Munich, Germany. I studied Italian at the Dante Alighieri Institute in Florence. I received an on-site 120 hour TEFL Certificate from TEFL PLUS in Thailand. I have also taught many employee group classes in large and small companies in Taiwan, China and Thailand . Depending on the level of proficiency, I try to motivate students to have a discussion or just open conversation. Or if they prefer, we use textbook lessons. I certainly also like to teach or review grammar , as well as structured lessons if that is what the students require. I try to engage students in topics that they personally are interested in since I usually work with adults who have not had many opportunities to practice the English they learned in school.
