Here’s a little bit about me….
I have had a deep curiosity in languages and cultures from a very young age, and as I grew older my curiosity has blossomed into an appreciation for the mutual interests that individuals from various backgrounds share. These interests developed into my passions, thus I have earned a B.A. in International Affairs, a M.A. in TESOL and a TEFL certificate. Over the years, I have worked with researchers, academics and thought leaders on various topics pertaining to the well-being and advancement of marginalized communities. I believe that educational and technological advancements will contribute to innovative solutions for a broad range of societal and global issues.
For the past several years I have been teaching ESL and I have focused on multiple teaching techniques to ensure all learners’ needs are addressed. I have incorporated a range of methods to increase language retention. The communicative theory is the foundation of all of my lessons and I strive to engage each learner and appeal to their unique learning preferences. I have maintained an instructional approach which meets the needs of students and delivers a lesson with the appropriate level of scaffolding, modeling and language input. My goal is to help students achieve the classroom objective, enhance their critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as retain the target language.
