UNIVERSITY OF GHANA, LEGON, GHANA
University of Yaounde I, Cameroon, Africa (Master's)
Educated in both French-speaking and English-speaking countries with a combined Bachelor of Arts Honors Degree in French and Spanish from the University of Ghana, and a Master's Degree in International Relations from the University of Yaounde, I'm fascinated by varied cultures, comfortable among diverse populations. I speak and write fluent English and French and have a good knowledge of Spanish. This unique background enhances my adaptability and creativity.
I have more than 15 years of experience in teaching, management and retail sales/customer service using French or English, on the one hand, and in French to English freelance translation, on the other hand. I'm now back in full force to language teaching - a profession I have always been passionate about!
My love of people and language teaching has always given me profound satisfaction in developing creative curricula and motivating students to reach their goals and acquire new goals and insights. I have taught Spanish to English Speakers (workers) and French speakers (high school students) for 5 years, and English to French speakers (middle school students and workers) for 4 years. I have also taught French as a private tutor to English speakers (mostly businessmen) for 5 years.
I create lesson plans and tutor students in groups or one-on one in vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension and conversation based on the learner's needs.
French - Grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, writing, conversation.
Spanish - Grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing.
English - ESL/ESOL Educated in both French-speaking and English-speaking countries with a combined Bachelor of Arts Honors Degree in French and Spanish from the University of Ghana, and a Master's
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a Masters in Education (teaching and learning. I also have a certificate from the Teaching of English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL) of Montgomery College. I am an adult English as a Second Language (ESL) tutor of the Literacy Council of Montgomery County.
