Meet The Teacher

Rita Fork received her Bachelors of Science and Masters degrees in Language and Linguistics from Georgetown University.  She also attended the Universite de Bordeaux, France and the Universidade do Espiritu Santo, Brazil.  She received her TESOL certification from UCLA.

Rita enjoys teaching at El Camino, and she especially enjoys her students who come from almost every country in the world.  She is impressed with El Camino's commitment to the ESL program where each student has access to a myriad of resources to address specific needs and concerns.  Access to one-on-one tutoring services and to interactive computer exercises are among the resources students find particularly helpful.

Away from the college, Rita enjoys spending time with her husband and keeping up with the lives of her son and daughter who are currently serving in the United States Army in Germany.  She also enjoys gourmet cooking, playing music on her new digital piano, visiting art galleries and bookstores, exercising and keeping up with the latest in effective learning techniques.  She enjoys surfing the Internet and attending seminars, conferences and university classes so she can exchange notes with teaching professionals and integrate new teaching practices into her classroom.
