Dear Prospective Student,

Thank you for visiting my profile. To help you with your selection process, let me share a little about myself and experience.

I am a Finance professional with 25+ years experience working for corporations and universities. In my transition to universities I decided to do some teaching. My first actual teaching job was in finance as an adjunct professor. I really enjoyed this experience, which led me to more education and training. Based on my interests, English as a Second Language (ESL) seemed like the right fit for me.

On my way to reaching my goal, I volunteered at night at an immigration center teaching ESL for computers. The students I had were just great, immigrants and refugees with a great passion to learn. Their enthusiasm and strong desire to assimilate also motivated me.

As I continued with my training and education, I had another opportunity to teach English overseas in Poland. This was quite a different experience and challenging for a group of American teachers who did not speak Polish, but equally as challenging for the students who had few places to practice English. I am happy to say the one month intensive training program proved quite effective.

I am now certified to teach ESL through The New School and have over 100 teaching hours behind me. With this, I look forward to helping someone like you.

Thanks again for visiting my profile.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

I am comfortable teaching vocabulary, since this is a big part of teaching ESL. As an instructor, I typically extract the words I think my student would have difficulty with before reading any passage to pre-teach these words. This method is very effective with ESL students and can also be applied to anyone wanting to improve their English.
