I have been teaching English since 2010. Although I have resided in the United States for years and my accent has changed a little (sounds more like an native speaker), I sometimes play with my accents and embrace the the mix cultures here. In my ESL class, I encourage students to speak out, and to appreciate their accents and their multi-cultural backgrounds. Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multi-cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussions. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special! Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual effort. I have a lot to share with you!
I earned my MA in teaching English as a second language and have worked with everyone from nearly fluent children to adult beginners. I am prepared to cater my lessons to suit whatever your needs may be! I am experienced in online and on the ground teaching at the university level and have worked with everyone from children learning phonics and the alphabet to adults learning academic English and research skills for PhDs. I myself have studied a number of languages, and I bring this knowledge to each lesson in order to address specific challenges a student might have. I look forward to starting a language learning journey with you! IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)
