About Olga


Bio

I was an ESL learner for six months when I first arrived to this country, and spent nine months intensively studying English as a Second Language in a Chicago junior college after I received my GED diploma.

My desire to motivate people around me to learn English has kept me motivated to auto teach myself. I have three grown children who have had higher education in universities as well as two young daughters from who I continue teaching, as I am deeply involved in their education.

I was an ESL learner for six months when I first arrived to this country, and spent nine months intensively studying English as a Second Language in a Chicago junior college after I received my GED diploma.

My desire to motivate people around me to learn English has kept me motivated to auto teach myself. I have three grown children who have had higher education in universities as well as two young daughters from who I continue teaching, as I am deeply involved in their education.

For the past two years, I have been involved as an AmeriCorps member. My role has been tutoring Head Start Parents with ESL classes. I have accrued 22 college credits this past school year, with a GPA of 3.3; I am enrolled in a community college in Associates of Arts Program. I have participated in the Martin Luther King Service Day in 2014 and 2015 and received a MLK Day of Service Award.

In the year of 2014 I was recognized as the Tutor of the Year by the Center for Literacy of the University of Illinois at Chicago. This year, 2015, I was given the Spotlight on Service Award by the Secretary of State/Illinois State Library Office and the Illinois Press Association. I have presented at LVI Conferences "On the Road to Literacy in April 2014 and 2015, and at the 17th Annual New Readers of New Life Conference in November 2014. I have attended the Northern Region Adult Education Conference in November, 2014.

I am a strong motivator who can help students who want to learn English.
