About Me

Experience Summary

My many years of teaching experience at all levels (from elementary to college) has given me the ability and patience to work with students of all ages. Although I prefer older students, I have taught reading, language arts, and writing in elementary school. During my more than 40 years in Greece, I worked with students in ESL (all levels), taught high school and college English, and prepared many Greek students for the TOEFL I have a BA degree in English from the University of North Texas (1962), MA in Reading and English from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio - 1975) and post graduate work from several European and American Universities. I have a state of Texas professional teaching certificate for English and Reading.

Teaching Style

My teaching style is determined by the group that I am teaching. I am always honest and open minded with my students. I always give me the respect and care that they deserve.

My Hobbies

I enjoy reading, movies, theater, and writing. I have a collection of Greek icons. I love music from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. I have a collection of CDs that I have made from various old discs.

Helping you achieve your goal in whatever you want to learn would give me great pleasure in seeing your success.

Subject Commentary

Composition Proficiency: Experienced
I have completed a 6 hour graduate course in the latest techniques in the writing process
Creative Writing Proficiency: Experienced
I have taught creative writing at the university level.
English This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
English is a general term used to indicate writing, reading, literature, grammar in high school courses.
Grammar Proficiency: Expert
Grammar is like math; I have studied modern English grammar. Although today grammar is not usually taught in most schools, I feel that it should be brought back to the basics.
Language Arts Proficiency: Expert
Again here language arts is a basic course that includes spelling, writing, grammar, handwriting, and literature in elementary and middle school. Some schools offer reading in their language arts programs.
Literature Proficiency: Experienced
American literature is my favorite. As a English teacher I taught world literature (including Greek mythology), American literature, and English literature.
Reading This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
Reading is such an important skill; I have a professional Texas state reading certificate as well as a MA in Reading.
Reading Comprehension Proficiency: Expert
Reading comprehension is taught with other reading skills such as vocabulary development, scanning for main idea, etc.
Shakespeare Proficiency: Experienced
Have taught Shakespeare as part of the English literature class in grade 12. I have actually been to Strafford Upon Avon and have seen many plays in England.
Spelling Proficiency: Expert
Spelling is part of language arts. Rather than memorizing a list of words weekly, I prefer to work with patterns that will help spelling most any words. Even though spell correct helps today, it is good to know how to spell as many words as one can from memory.
TOEFL This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
I have taught iBased TOEFL ever since it was introduced several years ago. The iBT requires students to write, read, speak, and listen to English at an academic level. The writing section is especially difficult as it requires a student to do two types of writing: 1.intergrated - read a passage, listen to a person discuss the passage, then write an answer to the question that is asked about the passage 2. Independent writing - write a short essay (about 300 words) on a given topic.
Writing Proficiency: Expert
I have experience in teaching writing as a process; prewriting, writing, revising, editing, and publishing. Many students associate writing with the editing process as it deals with spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.
