Hello, I am an ESL educator. I have been teaching ESL for 5 years, and I have 7 years of teaching experience. I am great at teaching students that range from beginning to advance. ESL lessons are unique to me, because they bring two individuals, who speak two different languages together. Although, we may not speak the same language, we may have similar experiences that aid in teaching. We will find a bond based on the similarities and differences we have. I am great with all ages! Whatever you may need, please do not hesitate to ask. I can also assist in teaching computer skills that can aid in English proficiency.

About Shakila L.

Hello,

My name is Shakila. I have been teaching with an ESL population for approximately 7 years. I knew I wanted to work with ESL students, therefore I graduated from Georgia State University with ESL endorsement. I also have my Masters in Reading and Literacy.

I am more than my credentials. I believe in structure, but I also believe the student helps in gauging the way I should teach. Each person is not the same, therefore, I cannot teach each individual the same. I provide individualized learning opportunities for each student I have. Bringing out a child's personality through learning is my goal and building a bond where they feel comfortable making mistakes and learning is my ultimate goal.

I look forward to hearing from you! Book with me, I know you want regret it. :)
