Frances Tornabene De Sousa
I currently teach the ESL High Intermediate students in the mornings and individual and small group distance learners in the afternoons. We focus on English Language Skills so students can successfully pursue personal goals and further academic and technical studies on their career path.
I was a staff engineer for UC Berkeley Office of Media Services, maintaining television, radio, video and computer equipment for academic departments. I taught Digital Arts and Multimedia in the Arts Department at UFScar (Federal University of Sao Carlos, Brazil.) I taught private English classes for businesses and academics, children and undergraduates in Brazil and am a published translator for scientific journals.
