Hi everyone:

My name is Jorge A., and I am a University of Cambridge CELTA certified. As a bilingual (Spanish and English) Chicago resident, I know the importance of language and the many doors it can open.

I have been working in Chicago for the past 17 years in Management/Human Resources and as a local business owner for the past ten years. I have also been involved in the Chicago theater community, both as a performer and playwright.

I would love to establish a good productive relationship with each of my students and enable them in the improvement of their English language skills. I have a lot of life experience and knowledge to offer, not only as a teacher but as a human being. Daily challenges can be intense and sometimes prevents us from bringing out the best in one another; I believe in treating everyone with respect and making the most of every minute.

Thank you for your consideration, hope to hear from you all!

ESL/ESOL

I am CELTA certified from the University of Cambridge, and have been working and living in this country for 25 years. I grew up in a bilingual environment, allowing me to be fluent in both English and Spanish.

I have also been involved in the Chicago theater community, both as a performer and writer. My original play, NICAS, was produced in 2002 under Pinolero Productions.

Grammar

I have my University of Cambridge CELTA certification, where I trained and taught both intermediate and upper intermediate students.

My knowledge of grammar is extensive; I believe in teaching with respect and making my lessons student centered rather than extensive teacher talk.

I can assure you a productive, yet fun, teaching environment.

Theatre

I have been involved in the Chicago theater community for the past 17 years, both as actor and playwright.

I have worked for the Latino Chicago Theater (Che, Che, CHe), Steppenwolf Theater (House on Mango Street), Agujon Theater (Blood Wedding); as well as Tin Fish, Bailiwick, and was part of the Latino Theater Festival at the Goodman Theater in 2004 with the Aguijon Theater Company.

My original play, NICAS, was produced under Pinolero Productions in the winter of 2002, and have also been involved in other local theater festivals with original scripts.

Writing

I assisted the Associate Dean for Community Health Affairs at the University of Miami School of Medicine for 4 years (1991-1995), in grant writing for different programs such as the Area Health Education Center and the AIDS Education Training Center.

I have also written for the theater in the local Chicago community. My original play NICAS, was produced in 2002 under Pinolero Productions.

As a business owner for the past ten years, I have been in charge of the production of manuals and guidelines for my restaurant, M Henry Cafe.
