I know that laughing with my students relaxes us both and builds bridges of trust so that when I correct them, they do not feel criticized and learn more readily. I worked for the Learning Advantage in Ct. for many years and enjoy people. In fact, I describe myself as an extrovert. I am a professional artist and hold a BFA/ed from Syracuse Univ. and a Masters in Special Ed. from the College of New Rochelle. I am fortunate to hold TEFL and Orton Gillingham certifications, as well. Maybe because I struggle with learning French myself and have visited Spain and Italy many times, I truly relish ESL students of all ages. I do prep work before my tutoring sessions and when the student agrees, I give homework, as well.
