I have a little over two years of teaching English as a foreign language outside of the U.S. I spent one year in South Korea teaching elementary school students and more than a year in the Sultanate of Oman teaching college students. Before then, I was a college instructor for three years in the United States and taught classes of many varieties in English speaking, reading and writing composition, as well as classes in the social sciences—-all of which required an integral online component.
My Bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies combined with my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics have allotted me the cultural sensitivity and formal pedagogical training to effectively teach English to learners of all social background. Further, the variety of my teaching experience has given me the flexibility to adapt to a range of curricula—both textbook based as well as computer based—and ensure its successful execution with uncompromising professionalism.
Currently I teach writing and speaking classes at Montgomery College and work as a part-time tutor at the college's Writing Center. My approach to tutoring is simple: I assess my learner's needs and structure the curriculum around developing those skills using both methods of explanation and student practice. Learners are free to go over specific assignments (reading, writing or speaking) that they are going over in school, or I could provide materials at the learner's request. Either way, my tutoring is centered around the student.
