With vast experience teaching Language Arts / ESL, and a solid educational background, I have become very adept at raising English fluency in general, and reading comprehension levels in particular. This has been verified time and again by reliable pre and post testing. My organizing ability has been honed by high school football coaching (defensive coordinator), directing graduation programs with 240 graduates, that were punctual, enjoyable and dignified, and founding and directing theater groups; the multiple award-winning Carver Middle School Drama Club, the Monkeyfinger Shakespeare Company in Taiwan, and the still active Saigon Players. Teaching American network English pronunciation is my forte. I thrive on challenges and new experiences. I am sensitive to, and respectful of, different cultures and languages.
