As a 2012 graduate of Liberty University with a major in Teaching English as a Second Language and a minor in Spanish, I have developed proficiency in Spanish and have studied abroad in Guatemala while teaching English. I have amounted teaching experience as a Tutor of English as a second language of all grade levels k-12 through volunteer hours and an internship at a local private school in Guatemala. Other experiences are private one on one English tutoring which includes being a conversation partner, helping with homework, and teaching grammar. Also, working in the English Language Institute at my college allowed me to build strong relationships with students and see them succeed and gain confidence from the time I invested to help them. Through these experiences, I've learned how to teach individuals from varying cultures and some of the most successful teaching methods.
At the present time, I am teaching English to elementary school students in Guatemala. This position enables me to build relationships with my students and implement study plans that equip them with a strong foundation in mastering the English language. I am challenged to be creative, nurturing and most of all, persistent. Watching them improve in their skills, grow in self-esteem, and develop a true passion to learn more has been one of the most rewarding experiences.
