I have been actively involved in church groups throughout college. I have also taught Sunday School at Bidwell Presbyterian Church in Chico, CA.
There are 66 books in the Bible. The Old Testament consists of 39 books and the New Testament consists of 27 books. Genesis, the first book of the Bible, talks about God's creation of the world and Adam and Eve. Revelations, the last book in the Bible, is about Christ's return. The New Testament begins with the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Other well-known books are the Psalms (consisting of 150 poems) and Proverbs (which passes on wisdom).
I have experience subbing a variety of grades, and therefore math levels. Last year, I taught fourth grade and I am currently teaching fifth grade. Additionally, schools have made the switch to Common Core and I am gaining that experience of teaching Common Core math.
ESL means English as a Second Language and ESOL is English for Speakers of Other Languages. For 26 months, I taught English as a foreign language in Ukraine. To learn English, it is important to use a lot of visuals, such as pictures and videos. Repetition is also helpful. Also, listening to native speakers, as well as practicing speaking, is very important.
I took a public speaking class at Bakersfield College. I also have positive experience public speaking through experiences such as teaching and leading meetings.
Public Speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people. Being a good public speaker is a good quality. It can improve your confidence and help in your career. Tips for being a good public speaker include, standing up straight and speaking clearly, and having good timing in your speech.
I lived in Ukraine for 26 months, where I was able to learn some Russian. Therefore, I am qualified to teach basic Russian.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (elementary education). Therefore, I am able to teach students about proper study skills. Study Skills are an important aspect to learning. They can include time management and strategies. For example, a tip for reading comprehension is to read the questions before the text, then you know what to look for in the text.
Swimming is a water sport. I have experience teaching swim lessons to children ages 12 months to 13 years. There are four main strokes in swimming: freestyle, backstroke, breastsroke, and butterfly. An Olympic-size pool is 50 meters long. Each swimmer, swims back and forth the length of the pool. In a relay, after the first person swims his/her length (and touches the wall), the next person may dive into the pool and swim. A dive is the process of going head-first into the pool.
I played tennis for four years in high school. I also played for two years at Bakersfield College, where I earned second team all-conference award in May 2005. I also continue to play in tournaments.
Tennis is a sport played with two racquets and a ball. The sport may be played on a hard court, grass, or clay. The basic goal is to hit the ball over the net into your opponent's side of the court. The scoring system starts at 0 (or love) and increases to 15 (or 5), then 30, then 40, then game. At 40-40, the point is deuce. The server begins on the deuce (right) side of the court and alternates side with each point. The person who wins six games (by at least two), wins the set. Most matches are best two out of three sets (sometimes three out of five). The biggest professional tournaments are the US Open (in New York), Wimbledon (in England), The Australian Open (in Melbourne), and the French Open (in Paris).
