About Richard


Bio

In addition to having received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Media with emphasis in Journalism in December 2011, I have been teaching English as a second language for the past 13 years. At the age of 18, I started my first job as an English instructor at The Wizard School in Brazil. It was there that I found my passion upon realizing how fulfilling it is to be able to contribute to someone’s growth.

In addition to having received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Media with emphasis in Journalism in December 2011, I have been teaching English as a second language for the past 13 years. At the age of 18, I started my first job as an English instructor at The Wizard School in Brazil. It was there that I found my passion upon realizing how fulfilling it is to be able to contribute to someone’s growth. This experience was followed by three years of teaching ESL at Yazigi Internexus, also in Brazil. At Yazigi I taught English to Brazilian natives of all levels, and at Philip Morris International I taught English for business purposes. Additionally, I have also been teaching ESL in different schools in the DC Metro Area for the past few years.

I believe any professional should always strive for ongoing personal and professional improvement. In order to keep myself up to date with ever evolving teaching techniques, I maintain a close relationship with former mentors and co-workers. This helped me focus on learner’s wants and needs when preparing my lesson plan. Along the years, I have created lessons that engage all learners by applying a variety of teaching methods. For me, it has been important to know that each student is different, meaning that teaching techniques that work for some individuals might need to be modified so that others may be able to benefit from them as well. Also, having had the opportunity to live in five different countries has helped me to be receptive and respectful of all cultural backgrounds.

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my skills and experience can meet your learning needs.
