My name is Fatimah and I have a BA in Applied Linguistics from Queens College. I graduated with high honors and a GPA of 3.8. Immediately after graduation I completed Teaching House's CELTA course. Since acquiring my CELTA certification, I traveled and taught throughout the Middle East for 2 years. I spent 1.5 years in Damascus, Syria working at an American Language Center which was partly subsidized by the American Embassy as an outreach to Syrians. While working there I was able to travel to Muscat, Oman: Mecca, Saudi Arabia: Medina, Saudi Arabia: Doha, Qatar: and finally Bahrain.
Having those experiences and working environments has helped shape my cultural sensitivity and consciousness. My favorite lessons were those I tailored for my private students while living overseas. It really allowed up to explore non generic issues in their language acquisition process. Having worked with students between the ages of 10 and 60, I am comfortable assisting the education process by many creative and ingenious means.
From false beginners (someone with under 2 years of English who has primarily learned it in school and hardly spoke it) to IELTS or TOFEL I am comfortable teaching all levels. I can also teach Business English, Idioms, Communications, Speech creation and delivery and a variety of other essential subjects.
If your looking to study with a reliable, professional, exciting ESL instructor contact me.
Peace and have a productive day.
