Moody Bible Institute, Chicago (TESOL)
I have had experience teaching ESL for the past four three years. I began student teaching my Junior year of College and throughout my senior year along with one summer internship. I have taught various levels of ESL from beginners to advanced. I have even taught a class specific to pronunciation and phonetics. Majority of teaching experience has been with adults however my most recent experience was teaching full-time English to elementary school aged children in Slovakia for on year (2011-2012). I also gave a few sessions to some of the staff and teenagers who requested English lessons. My undergraduate degree is in TESOL and I am also TESOL certified by the standards of the state of Illinois. I prefer to teach from a text book curriculum, adding in my own methods and ideas. I attempt to creatively as well as achieve the academic goals. I typically use the direct method, which involves speaking in English only. If the student is a beginner with little knowledge of the subject I integrate TPR methods in to the lesson. I believe that learning English should be an engaging experience with the purpose of fulfilling the objectives.

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.
I can help with teaching English to speakers of other languages.
