I hold a certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults from the University of Cambridge (CELTA). I have approximately a year’s experience teaching ESL to adults and children in both monolingual and multilingual settings. I have produced my own comprehensive teaching material and prefer to engage ESL learners through interactive games.
During my undergraduate studies, I majored in Spanish and International Development. I have a colloquial accent and understanding of the Spanish language as I spent a year and a half living in Argentina. As a member of the Canadian Association of Hispanics, I defended my paper on the narrative voice of Don Quijote at the national conference of 2011 in New Brunswick, Canada. I have been a Spanish tutor for approximately five years.
I have six months’ experience working as a GED math substitute teacher. I have led classroom lessons and training sessions on basic math skills for GED students and employees. I primarily work with students on an individual basis at their level and pace. I encourage students to come to the answers on their own while helping them work through the process. This makes the “a-ha!” moment of arriving at the answer after diligent work both rewarding for the pupil and the teacher.
