Information About Sandra
This is how 2 referees rated Sandra:
I am both a certified ESL teacher for adults (TESL Ontario) and a licensed high school teacher (Ontario College of Teachers.)
My areas of expertise in ESL include general ESL and EAP for adults and college/university students, IELTS exam preparation, and Business English.
My high school and general areas of expertise are Business including Accounting, History, English, Social Sciences, Grade 12 Philosophy, and essay-writing and study skills.
I have an Honours BA in History from the University of Guelph; a MBA in Accounting, Marketing and Organizational Behaviour from York University; and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto. I also have a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certificate and Diploma from the University of Waterloo, and a TEFL Certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from the University of Toronto.
I have tutored and mentored many types of learners, from immigrants and refugees new to Canada, to high school and college/university students, to adult remedial and literacy learners, since 2005.
I have also been teaching ESL for a school board and community college for the past three years, and prior to that, have almost eight years experience as a high school teacher, including teaching Grade 12 courses in Malaysia for almost five years. I also taught adult remedial learners English, computer skills, and job preparedness/job search skills for six months.
I am an enthusiastic and experienced professional who truly enjoys helping others learn. Everyone learns differently, so my tutoring style is learner-centred. This means that I am flexible and adaptable to the learner's individual learning style and needs, as well as being calm and patient, and encouraging and motivating. I hope that I can help learners reach their learning goals, whatever they are, in my areas of expertise.
