Hello! I have been teaching ESL (English as a second language) for two years. I taught in person at a school in Costa Rica for all of 2016. Now I teach online and I have students from all around the world!
I two degrees from UF. One in Telecommunication that focuses on editing and writing and another in U.S. American History.
EF -- English First - Online
I am currently teaching for EF Online. I am part of their freelance branch of teachers and can teach between 10 and 35 hours a week. I teach group and private classes that are 45 and 40 minutes respectively. Due to the time and location restraints of teaching online I have increased my time management when it comes to teaching. I know that time is limited and if I have to teach a difficult grammar point I need to have a concrete, fun and competent answer in my back pocket at all times.
2016 - 2017
Intercultura Language Center - Heredia, Costa Rica
I taught English at Intercultura Costa Rica. Taught between 20-24 hours a week to students ranging from ages 13 to 30. I ensured that lessons were engaging and age-appropriate. I always tried to bring more to the lesson than what was written in the book including: personal anecdotes, experiences and language advice.
2015 - 2015
International TEFL Academy - Chicago, Illinois
I received my TEFL Certificate from ITA in 2015. There I learned how to teach ESL students in a way that is engaging and exciting for both the teacher and the students.
