I am a visionary who believes that changing the world for the better is possible. I enjoy travel, food, culture, nature and meeting new people. I am a Native English Speaker from Chicago, IL USA. I've lived abroad for the past three years and have traveled to about 21 countries and have lived in two.
I am passionate about unleashing my full potential, yet at the same time, I respect the journey and process of growing and evolving. Many people say that my smile brightens up a room and that my personality is nurturing and positive. I try to maintain a sense of authenticity when I meet people, being fully me and giving them permission to also be themselves unapologetically.
I believe in respecting ALL people, Loving ALL people and at the same time being ok with disagreeing with people while maintaining mutual respect.
I'm an ambitious developing ESL teacher who is passionate about my learners' success. I have a Cambridge English level 5 CELTA, an IH Certificate for Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers, and a Masters of TESOL from King's College London.
I currently live in Vietnam and in addition to teaching English to young learners ( 3-year olds-17-year-olds), I manage a team of 11 ESL teachers. I enjoy working with my staff and students to help them become the best version of themselves. I provide monthly training in several areas of professional development for my teaching staff as well as other teachers in our network (Over 500 teachers). I also tutor adults online in Conversational English, Developing presentation skills and improving pronunciation.
I have two years of experience post qualifications. Prior to my ESL qualifications, I did a lot of volunteer work for teaching English through Conversations through a European Program English Immersion Program.
My goal is to further develop my ESL portfolio.
My teaching approach is very student-centered. Through conversation, I'm able to assess a learner's abilities and limitations and from that assessment, I plan a lesson.
I am a kind and patient teacher who:
-Has excellent communication skills
-Is able to provide accurate and appropriate models of oral and written language
-Is able to identify errors and sensitively correct learners' oral and written language
-Is able to anticipate potential difficulties with language, materials, and learners
