My name is Analita Mulligan, and I am a native, English-speaking teacher in
New Jersey, USA, certified in Teaching both English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and English writing and literature, (English Language Arts--ELA), for native speakers. I have been teaching English subjects for 20 years, including their test preparation, throughout the USA, Asia, South America, and most recently in Europe. During my teaching career, I have worked with students of all ages, different English levels, and with quite a few nationalities. For example in Kitakami City, Japan, I taught from kindergartners to senior level executives at the Toshiba headquarters there. In Bogota, Colombia, I taught English writing and literature at an international, bi-lingual, International Baccalaureate (IB) school, before working with business professionals from diverse industries throughout this city. And in New Jersey, I worked with gifted and talented American students at a public, magnet, high school called Dr. Ronald McNair Academic High School, which has been consistently ranked as one of the top 5 schools in the entire state, since its founding in 1976. In 2008, it received the National Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence from the United States Department of Education, the highest award an American school can receive.

ESL and English Writing and Literature Services, LLC, uses the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) approach because it emphasizes interaction as both the means and the goal of studying, along with Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT), which is about learning to use the type of English that is necessary for daily life whether it be for personal, academic, or professional purposes - both spoken and written.
When teaching speaking to both ESL/EFL students and native speakers, I work with my students on their diction: pronunciation, articulation, enunciation, intonation, grammatical accuracy, and vocabulary development.
When teaching writing, I focus on grammatical accuracy, spelling, punctuation, vocabulary, syntax, and on the usage of the appropriate tones for whom the work is being addressed.
When teaching reading to my students, I do decoding and comprehension exercises and activities to ensure that they understand what they have read and included in the discussions is the help students need to understand that what they read is important and relevant to them.
After reading each piece of various kinds of literature, students should be able to comment and provide clear opinions, in addition to being able to write in cohesive, cogent, and compelling ways about them. I also provide interactive, listening activities and exercises to develop students' listening capabilities through a broad variety of audio materials.
