Hello! I am Christy and I am a fantastic teacher because I love working with people and helping them learn (and watching them succeed!). Education is IMPORTANT and I do my part to support learners on all levels.
The last 18 years I have worked in Education. I have earned a BA and MA in English, Teaching credentials, and a TEFL/TESOL certificate and have taught English language and writing from ages 5 through 60, including primary schools, high schools, universities, tutoring centers, and for Adult Literacy organizations. I have worked as an educator in 8 countries and have loved learning the various approaches to teaching, understanding different learning levels in my students, and how I can best support each of my individual students.
As a teaching style, I tend to focus on assessing the learning level of my students through questioning, and then encouraging them to think deeply about their assignment and analyze their own response. I provide a writing structure that helps them to frame their writing pieces in a way that logically and clearly presents their written response. It's important that my students are able to make connections between what an assignment requires with how they are shaping their response, that they understand the tools (steps) needed to formulate their communication, and also that they are able to identify areas where they can approve. It's important to recognize patterns in writing, language, and communication, and I help my students identify theirs in a way that helps them improve their English writing skills.
