In my two years of experience teaching adult learners through The Literacy Council in Rockford, Illinois, I have acquired over 500 hours of ESL classroom experience. I am also comfortable working with students individually and have an achieved an additional 400 hours of one-on-one ESL and Adult Basic Education (ABE) volunteer tutoring. In that capacity, I have worked with a diverse population of students whose native languages have include Spanish, Mandarin, and Bosnian. My enthusiasm and dedication to my students is what provides the foundation for my career in teaching. As my student Jorge wrote in a recent course evaluation: “Mr. H. is a great ESL instructor who truly wants his students to succeed. He makes the information easy for students to understand and remember.” I hope Jorge's words can speak to my passion for teaching as well as my success with English language learners.
