St. George's University (Liberal Studies)
Walden University (Master's)
Scholastic/Work/Tutoring Experience Summary:
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. George's University. After leaving University I got into teaching at one of the nation's secondary schools. I was responsible for teaching English Literature and English Language to the junior and senior students at the school. Most of the students were students in crisis ,that is, they were performing below their grade levels. I had to come up with creative ways to engage the students and assist them in overcoming their difficulties. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
Additionally, I graduated with a Master's degree in Adult Learning from Walden University. I specialized in Teaching English to Adult Speakers of Other Languages. I have a passion for helping others learn to communicate successfully in English in both oral and written form.
I do not have any precise style of teaching. I basically adapt to the student I have. I do favor encouraging my students to learn by: doing, thinking, and reflecting. I also prefer my students to explore things on their own. I would put forward a problem for students to solve, ask them opened ended questions where no single right answer is possible and I may even suggest they explore complex real life situations. I value experiential learning. Students learn extensively from their experiences. I enjoy learning and I want my students to enjoy it as well. I believe that in order for them to do that they must feel like the learning experience is relevant to them and I try my best to create that relevance. Scholastic/Work/Tutoring Experience Summary:
