I earned my TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages) certificate from Oxford Seminars and did my practicum in the classroom at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX. I earned this certification because I plan on teaching English abroad in 2014. I received my BA degree in English at the Texas State University at San Marcos in 2011.
I am currently an English mentor at California College of the Arts supporting the Summer Writing Skills Workshop Intensive, and the International Grad Prep Intensive program. I became interested in being an English tutor when I started tutoring one to one. At the time, I was volunteering for my church in Korea in 1990-1991 and lived with a host family. I tutored adults from a range of backgrounds from business people to artists to university students. I enjoyed it so much, that I continued to seek out speakers of ESL for tutoring when I later returned to the USA.
In 1995, I was an instructor/volunteer coordinator for WATER (Women’s Access To Electronic Resources) demystifying the process of video and radio production for women who wanted to tell their stories electronically. I taught them how to use the camera, and edit and print their footage for screening. Those who showed an interest in working the studio camera at the Austin Community Television studios (ACTV) would be invited to work crew for the various programs in which I technically directed for producers.
I continued to tutor at least two ESL students a month throughout my life, and participated as a conversation leader for a group of seven students for The Texas Intensive English Program in 2004. The students got a kick out of the periodic screenings in my home, after which we would have animated English discussion and review. FUN!
We started hosting TIEP students in our home since around 2003, I would be available for tutoring for those students as well as showing them sites in Austin and San Antonio. On one occasion, two students and I went on a road trip from Austin, Texas to Orlando, Florida…singing songs from our various towns. I dropped them off at Disney World, continued on to Ft, Lauderdale, Florida for a conference/retreat and picked them up on the way back. That was an unforgettable and fun trip!
I am now in Berkeley working on my MFA in Writing (at CCA) to help with the memoir I will be publishing in the near future. I would like to support adults in the Bay area in their English language development. Try me out!
I have produced three short films for a 48 hour film project. I worked as an A/V Tech for a school in which one of my tasks was to produce industrial, instructional, promotional, and event videos over a period of 5 years. I worked in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier and a host of other NLE programs. I used high end cameras and studio camera when I produced weekly shows with community television.
I own a Power Mac and use it everyday. I also use Macintosh computers at school. I learned on a Macintosh and PC. I prefer Macintosh for video, music or any other graphic project. One of my jobs in May was to help students print large graphic projects from their Macintosh.
I learned video hands-on in 1994. Just one year later, I taught video production in a hands-on style, and continued to do so for the next four years. I also took RTF classes in college (Radio, Television, and Film theory and production).
Now I work as an Audio Visual Technician, part of my job was to make various types of video (instructional, promotional, and documentation). I know Final Cut Pro, and have used Adobe Premier, and long ago I used Media 100. I am comfortable in both PC and Mac environments. Lately, I have been using iMovie for quick video uploads for YouTube.
