We are two - Elaine, a Linguist with a MA in TESOL and years of hands on experience, and Arthur, an MSW Social Worker experienced in working with adolescents and adults in minority, poor, and immigrant communities. We envision helping the next generations of teachers and learners to enhance their careers and lives. We are doing that by continuing to “figure out,” learn, create, publish, present, communicate, offer, and share what works.
Over the years, we have built a collection of language learning tools that work in real world classrooms for educators and learners in many contexts: English, English as a Second Language - ESL, Adult Basic Education - ABE, Career and College Pathways, WIOA - Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act, Adult Literacy, English Language Acquisition - ELA, or English as a Foreign Language - EFL.
Since 1982, we have worked out of our home, where we have the tools we need, and the convenience and comfort we desire. It also keeps our overhead LOW, which means that educators get more for less - sometimes much more for much less.
This online store is a new, built from scratch, state of the art place that we think is convenient for you to use.
Our staff is small, and growing. Everyone here wears several hats, as in most small businesses.
Please share your needs, wants, questions, and preferences. They guide our delivery of useful, effective tools to you.
