ESL / EFL Instructor

I have been an English as a Second Language Teacher/English as a Foreign Language Teacher for nearly my whole adult life.  I have nearly 25 years experience in teaching English language learners of all ages and of all levels, and from many different backgrounds.  My teaching career began in the U.S. where  I taught adult immigrants of varying levels how to better survive in an English speaking world.  After three years, I moved to South Korea where I taught both middle school pupils and their English language teachers. After two years in Asia, I moved to Helsinki, Finland.  I have been living and teaching English to Finns since 1999.  Though most of my students are mid-level to advanced-level adults, I have taught English to Finns of all levels and varying ages.
