About Dominique

A lot of foreign and migrant families come to United States with difficulty catching up. As an ESL teacher, it is my responsibility to help them catch up with their environment and be one step closer to success.

I'm not a native speaker. I'm a full bilingual. I speak both my native language and English as my first languages.

I want you to know that this is a positive thing, because there was a time when I found it hard to learn a new language, and, with a lot of hard work and guidance, I came out really well.

I've had to help Korean colleagues in university, many of whom had flown to my country to learn English. They found it was the total opposite to their language, and so needed a lot of help. We'd had to deal with a lot of advanced subjects and I helped them get through a lot despite the language barrier. I suppose that's what has earned me a professional certificate for teaching ESL.

I know what it feels like to be surrounded with people you can't understand and can't understand you. I've been there.
I also know what it's like to only be taught the rules of a language and never how to actually use it.

In my method, mistakes are a proof that you are trying and experimenting. Most importantly, you are discovering yourself through a new language. As you begin to learn English, you will find that not only will it be challenging, it will also be liberating.

Approved subjects

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.

Voice (Music)

I have been trained in the Per Bristow method, which emphasizes strength and flexibility of the vocal chords.

The vocal chords are like any muscles; to develop a strong voice, they need exercise which involves more than just simply hitting notes. There is also the issue with reducing the use of compensating muscles (muscles around your body and around your vocal chords which tend to contract when you sing).

The Per Bristow method collects different exercises that tap into range, power, endurance, breathing and many other aspects which improve a person's singing ability, thus giving them more freedom to sing as they please.

Writing

Besides my Bachelor's degree, I am also one of the heads of a new creative company back in my country; I have works of fiction waiting to get started. I have written several essays, including a co-written 180-page paper on the Assassin's Creed Series.
