Hello potential students!
I am excited to be able to share my experience of teaching English with you. First some background about myself: I have a TESOL international teaching certificate, and I have taught conversational English overseas to 2 public schools, which included parents, staff as well as the Principal at one school. My teaching style is an integrated approach utilizing reading, writing, pronounciation, role-play, games, and much more! I want to give you the tools you need, so I will customize a lesson play to your unique needs and way of learning. Above all I believe we learn and retain more if it is an enjoyable experience.
I have been trained as a Career Counselor, and obtained a MS in Counseling Psychology specializing in career counseling. For my thesis in graduate school I designed a career development program for high school and young adults. I received an "A" and a recommendation by my graduate professor to incorporate this design into a school curriculum. I also did an 8-week internship in a work-readiness program with the Urban League. I have a year of experience in Human Resources and have been working as a recruiter since June 2011.
I have a TESOL certification from TESOL Training International School, which was obtained by completing 120 classroom and tutoring students hours. With this certificate and training I taught conversational English overseas for 1 year.
I am an avid reader and I have worked as a teacher's aid for third graders in a remedial program. I have been quite successful teaching phonics and overall reading improvement. As an ESL instructer, I've learned that every language has a rhythm, I incorporate this idea when helping others' to improve their reading skills and retention ability.
