The best way to develop a large vocabulary is to read, read, read!

I can work with students on getting to know some Greek and Latin word origins, learning the meanings of specific prefixes and suffixes, and learning how to get the most use out of what a good dictionary offers. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writin [more]

Learn English to succeed at what you really want to do!

Research and common sense tell us that vocabulary is best learned in context, not by memorizing long lists of words.

My techniques are based on an integrated, student-centered approach to building vocabulary as you speak, listen, read and write -- not as an isolated memorization drill. How can I improve my English? It's a good question and one I have been asked hundreds -- if not thousands -- of times. As you probably know by now, there's no [more]

Credentialed French teacher with English, English-language development

As with any teacher, knowledge of vocabulary is crucial. I find this true as both a French and English-language development teacher. It is important to teach students how to use academic language.

I am a California credentialed French teacher with a BA from University of the Pacific and twelve years teaching experience with all levels of French to Advanced Placement. I worked for the company that built the B.A.R.T. trains and software as a contract writing assistant and int [more]
