Areas of Expertise

Experience
Teacher and Manager Sep 1994Present Greenwich English Classroom Hualien City, Taiwan, ROC
  • For over 20 years, owner and manager of a language school in Taiwan for students ranging in age from early elementary to college. The majority of students are junior high and high school age, averaging about 120 boys and girls each term.
  • Demanding excellence, purpose and commitment, I ensure students become adept in the advanced language skills that would be expected of them in a Western educational context. These areas include persuasive composition writing, research, oral presentations, critical analysis and discussion groups. 
  • My first priority for a language school in a traditional Asian setting has been to confirm that students are able to meet the demands of the rigorous national testing system. However, I also feel responsible for, and endeavor toward, taking my students far beyond the confines of these requirements. The underlying message communicated is that effective English language skills are the key to cross-cultural understanding and advancement in all fields of study.
Teacher Sep 1999Jun 2001 Santa Cruz Public Schools Santa Cruz, CA
  • As a student in a master's of education program, I worked for two years with several veteran teachers of history, English and social studies at the junior high and high school level in California public schools. As a lover of history and geography, I found great satisfaction and inspiration teaching public school classes in this context. The skills and abilities gained from that experience have served me well in bringing depth and substance to my language classes.
