I am an E.S.L. instructor by trade and have taught E.S.L. overseas and in Canada. I've instructed students in South Korea, Indonesia and India, as well as Canadian students.
I offer students a non-judgemental, low-stakes learning environment in which they are encouraged to learn at their own pace, choose risks, make mistakes as necessary, acquire skills and build confidence.
Tutoring experience includes work in the classroom, tutoring from home, doing field trips and engaging in extracurricular activities. I have past experience tutoring within a group environment, and excel at working one-on-one with students.
My subject matter largely being E.S.L… part of my instructing experience has included needs assessments, competency-based courses and course materials, casual sharing activities, and student-involved evaluation.
Lesson planning, progress reports and work portfolios have all been aspects of my job as an E.S.L. instructor.
In instructing activities, I use daily situations as a context to find words, idioms, phrases, and larger parts of speech to use in daily situations. These activities include making lists, making a set of instructions for someone to follow such as a recipe or directions to a tourist destination, writing a television commercial script, doing drills, doing writing assignments, and producing a finished work such as artwork or a collage. My style is based on clearly demonstrating what needs to be taught, and allowing students to achieve success based on the activity or exercise being incorporated.
