**Further experience notes:  During my 20+ years working in Education, I have worked with all age groups. I really do not favor one group over the other as they are each special in their own way. However, I have always found it easy to build rapport and sound relationships with teens.  While in Ecuador, I built an English Language Academy and often taught the teen and adult classes due to the level of English required.  These classes fulfilled me so much because of the conversations, relationships, and learning experiences the student brought to me! Additionally, I have worked in afterschool and summer programs where I gravitated to the older groups of teens.  I have completed many 1 on 1 tutoring with teens to help with studying and test preparation.
