University of Buea, Cameroon (Media studies)
I speak English and French fluently. Currently, I am enrolled at McDaniel College, Westminster, MD (Msc. in TESOL). In this program we are not only trained to teach English as a second language but to teach any content (language arts, science, math, social studies) in English to immigrant students who have little or no mastery of English language. I have a background in Media studies (BSc.) from my university in Cameroon. I have experience in tutoring one-on-one where I believe and know I excel with students who either want to learn English as second language or French as a second language.
I have taught English as a second language in my country on a one-on-one basis which I think is very productive. What makes me a good ESOL teacher is that I have the capacity to interact with and accept the languages of others, two things which permit you get to know the student better and knowing the culture of the student which you can use to design your lessons. ESOL transcends mere language as it is even deeper in knowledge of students' background, culture, likes, hobbies and behaviors. It is an all-encompassing field and being aware of that is a massive stride towards success as an ESOL/ESL teacher.
I promise that working with me will give you another perspective of "learning" with my African background and presently the knowledge I have acquired in your country for the past one year.

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.
