Bio

Hello, my name is Laura Caputo, I have been an Associate Adjunct Professor teaching English as a second language at Hofstra University for almost 20 years. I have first-hand experience as an ELL as I grew up bilingual with non-English-speaking parents; I feel that this has made me very aware of the difficulties foreign language learners encounter when learning English as a second language; I have taught English as a second language with the Board of Education in both New York City and Brooklyn. I have taught ESL in Italy, Spain, and Japan. My favorite topic is teaching students about American culture, idioms, and slang, I love watching their faces light up when they grasp a concept for the first time! I find teaching ESL to be particularly rewarding, sometimes I feel like what I learn is a far greater gift than what I teach! I really enjoy establishing a rapport with my students, and creating a warm, friendly and relaxing learning environment!
