As a skilled teacher in a very competitive college program, I have a passion and enthusiasm for teaching. I have recently taught ESL to teachers in Mexico for the Suenos Compartidos program in Mexico. This was a volunteering experience that proved very rewarding. I have taught music production in an excellent college for over twelve years and have really enjoyed the experience. I have experience teaching young adults and teenagers in both individual and group settings. I possess a 3-year diploma in engineering and continue to educate myself with college credit courses. My objective is to educate students with a hunger to learn how to speak English, not only for the knowledge but also to enhance their employment opportunities. I enjoy foreign travel and have worked in twelve of the over forty countries I have been lucky to visit.
I believe that a successful teacher is one that is enthusiastic and passionate about teaching. They should be very respectful of students and understanding of their culture. An outstanding teacher will be very resourceful and be able to adapt to changing classroom dynamics. I have had the fortunate experience of teaching music to students who went on to enjoy rewarding careers.
I am well traveled and understand the challenges of learning a new language and am sensitive to students' needs and have accommodated them with respect, dignity, and encouragement. I believe it is more important to teach a student what they can do instead of what they can't do.
Included in my application is my resume and reference letters from former students and my college student feedback surveys are available at your request.
