I am a former communication professional with strong interpersonal skills who seeks to work with a diverse population of students. As the daughter of immigrant parents, both of whom have benefited from ESL, teaching English is a personal passion of mine.
I recently completed my certification in TESOL at Teachers College, Columbia University, during which I instructed an ESL course for 12 intermediate ESL students. I developed lesson plans that were learner centered and created interactive classroom activities based on communicative language teaching techniques. I also have experience in administering and scoring language placement exams in the areas of reading, writing and speaking.
Prior to this, I volunteered with Reading Empowers, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote literacy among students in New York City's elementary schools. I supervised and interacted with students in K-3 during 2-hour sessions every weekend. We read age-appropriate material to them and led discussions around the stories' main ideas. For the 3rd graders specifically, we practiced writing exercises in preparation for the NYS ELA exam.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!
