: I completed CELTA training at Teaching House's NYC (Chelsea) location in March 2013. During this training I taught English
to multi-lingual group classes of beginner and advanced levels. After completing this vigorous course, I received my CELTA certificate from the University of Cambridge.
I have also taken graduate classes in English grammar
and have taught English abroad. During the summer of 2010 I took part in developing an ESL curriculum and teaching it at the Shanghai Institute of Health Sciences. In our classes, four teams taught groups of about 20 EFL students. Our goal was to acclimate these Chinese
students to American class structure and teaching style, and to establish some vocational vocabulary
I enjoy working with ESL students and learning about other cultures while I help students with English.
Elementary: I also have several years of experience volunteering in various children's activities and groups. I have taught middle school general music
and music appreciation in my college internship and particularly enjoy working with this age and with younger children. I have experience working with ADHD
and LD children and at my last tutoring job was able to help my student raise his GPA from C
-D to A-B by the end of the semester. I have a patient and permissive teaching style and have personal experience with overcoming learning disabilities.
: Having a master's in English has given me lots of practice writing papers. I know MLA format best, but have also written several APA papers. I love writing papers, and love helping students overcome issues with organization
and structure. I believe I have a kind but critical eye for these issues and love helping students turn good papers into great papers.
