About Engela


Bio

My name is Engela, and I am originally from Namibia (Africa). I look forward to assisting you in making English fun, relevant and comprehensible. Here is little bit about me:

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree (1997), a Master of Arts in English (2000), and a second Master’s in Teaching Secondary Education (MAT) in 2014, with a minor in English as a second language from Wayne State University.

Prior to that, I tutored both native and immigrant students in ESL for about 10 years if not longer. I...

My name is Engela, and I am originally from Namibia (Africa). I look forward to assisting you in making English fun, relevant and comprehensible. Here is little bit about me:

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree (1997), a Master of Arts in English (2000), and a second Master’s in Teaching Secondary Education (MAT) in 2014, with a minor in English as a second language from Wayne State University.

Prior to that, I tutored both native and immigrant students in ESL for about 10 years if not longer. I also was an online Adjunct Instructor for five years at Axia College, an extension of the University of Phoenix. I enjoyed teaching Effective Expository Writing and Contemporary Business Writing.
Currently, I am working full time as Coordinator of Systemic Investigations at the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit; we help to eradicate unlawful housing discrimination.

I believe that my international background, coupled with my extensive teaching experience and qualifications, will be beneficial in making reading and writing fun and relevant. I had to acquire English as a second language, so I can genuinely relate to my students’ frustrations in their efforts to express themselves clearly verbally and in writing.

Although I enjoyed teaching online, I also find it much more gratifying working directly with students one-on-one or in a classroom setting. My comprehensive knowledge of English will serve as a solid foundation and springboard for effective teaching and learning. As your tutor, I will integrate effective and flexible teaching strategies that are crucial in cultivating learning in a nurturing, student-centered environment. Of course, this includes lesson design, reevaluation and revision of lessons to maintain relevancy and to meet your needs.

Above all, teaching is my passion, and student success is my reward. I have high expectations of my students and believe that each student can learn at his or her own pace. Teaching and learning are reciprocal; so I, too, would learn from you. As a reflective practitioner, I am flexible and routinely observe and assess my students’ scholastic progress and overall performance, so I can redesign lessons if needed.

It is critical to recognize and incorporate students’ rich diverse cultural backgrounds, experiences, varying intellectual abilities. I infuse different perspectives into lesson planning, especially in terms of lesson design and presentation. It is my job, as an empathetic and engaging tutor to create a welcoming, inclusive and student-focused learning environment. So, welcome aboard our successful educational journey!

Remember, EXCELLENCE is on the other side of hard work, discipline and determination!
