“Elizabeth has helped me tremendously with interviewing and public speaking and the results came quite fast! She has helped me to gain more body and mind awareness, which has not only empowered me to respond better to stressful situations like interviews and public talks, but has also improved the quality of my interactions with friends and family. Being a physician who is around a lot of caring individuals, I can say without any hesitation that she is one of the most empathic individuals I have ever met. Elizabeth, thank you so much for everything!”
“It is an absolute pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Elizabeth Appleby whom I have know since January 2006. Elizabeth was an outstanding instructor who taught in our ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) Department at the New Haven Adult Education Center. Ms. Appleby taught the advanced level of ESOL, pronunciation classes and initiated a class entitled “Now You’re Talking: Idiom Acquisition Through Theater”. All of her advanced classes integrated listening, speaking, reading, and writing. A variety of techniques to encourage critical thinking skills, correct syntax, and vocabulary acquisition were used. Her use of theater techniques in her classes encouraged her student to be totally engaged. The students responded positively to her compassionate nature as well as her excellent sense of humor.
In whatever class Elizabeth taught, her communication skills helped her be the dynamic and effective teacher she is. Ms. Appleby has a genuine and deep felt love for her students and her profession. She was always willing to share her expertise with her colleagues. Elizabeth attended teacher workshops and always searched for materials and techniques to meet the needs of each and every one of her students.
As the ESOL Facilitator, I enthusiastically recommend Elizabeth Appleby. You will find her to be a tremendous asset to your program. ”
