Sobre mim

I am a native speaker of English from California (my birth nationality), but I now live in Chile. I speak fluent Spanish, too. I like to teach adults and teens, as well as kids. I have taught over 5,000 online lessons. I am an occasional university professor (two decades of experience, mostly full time, but now only online). I have traveled to 70 countries. I have 7 children, 6 were homeschooled (all are now adults). I do editing and proofreading for non-native-English-speaking university professors trying to publish in academic journals. I have written 9 books and numerous journal articles hundreds of blog entries and letters to the editor. I work Monday through Saturday, full time, with ESL during my morning and evening hours (GMT -4). I have a very fast Internet connection (450 download and 60 upload) and very adequate computer and sound equipment for online teaching. I only follow and create lesson plans for those who specifically request them. I general, I prefer to teach all ages by means of reading (out loud) classic books in English literature and learning vocabulary, pronunciation and critical thinking that way. Student homework is always to look up new vocabulary words prior to class. For kids I have used, for example, Dr. Seuss, The Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Flies; for teens, Dracula, Hunger Games, Fahrenheit 451; for adults, Animal Farm, 1984, The Godfather, Rabble in Arms. Reading is a "fun" way to learn and is in large measure how Americans and other English speakers learn or perfect their language skills.
