I am a college graduate from The George Washington University where I earned my Bachelor's degree. I received my TEFL/TESOL certificate from the International TEFL Academy that is based out of Chicago, Illinois, USA in January 2014.
I earned a final grade of 98% over an 11-week period and was certified shortly after that. In addition to the 180 hours of instruction I received, I have more than twenty hours of past practical tutoring and observation at the an ESL Academy in Queens, New York. In the past, I have tutored privately and taught English to students at Berlitz Inc., the Huntington Learning Center, and the SEIU 615 labor union.
I was a full-time English language teacher at schools in Istanbul, Turkey and Medellin, Colombia where I instructed young learners in my native language for 25-30 hours of lessons per week. I am not only able to help your average English learner but I can also help in the areas of Business English along with assisting Young Learners.
I am proficient in all parts of the English language such as speaking, reading, writing, and listening. I ensure that each of my students also becomes proficient in learning about English grammar and vocabulary in order to improve their knowledge overall.
