My philosophy of education is centered around providing a just classroom for all learners. It is the role of the educator to provide an educational experience that is tailored to each student in the classroom. By providing opportunities for all students to excel, I strive to create a welcoming environment for each individual in the classroom.
To further create an insight into my capabilities and credentials, I have provided an overview of my key achievements:
- Created English and German language curriculum for other Foreign Language Professors.
- Worked collaboratively with students, families, and school staff in order to place students in suitable English programs.
- Throughout the course of 3 years, 80% of students went on to complete and pass English exams such as KET/Cambridge First/PET and IELTS.
-Oversaw an increase in 2 points grade average for 4 underachieving ESL students. Their end of term results being commended for notable marks.
I achieved this by developing an effective ESL/German Foreign Language curriculum by choosing clear goals, a way to assess those goals as successful or not, then choosing activities and content that contributes to those goals.
An example of this would be when I assigned my ESL students a health and nutrition presentation project that incorporated the usage of transition words. The guidelines I laid out for a successful presentation were: "The presentation must contain 10 sentences at minimum, 1 opening, 1 closing, and 8 content slides. Content sentences must have transition words like "but" "however" "in addition". Student must be able to give presentation without just reading it off a paper, look at audience, and have some visual aid."
I vastly prefer this kind of syllabus planning, as textbooks cease being the core of your class and more a supplement and each day becomes tailored to the goal I set for the class.
I am an International Law Undergraduate student, and I have been teaching for 3 years. I have worked as an English, Spanish, and German teacher in Madrid and in the UK. I can provide students with test preparation, reading comprehension, writing, oral comprehension, and development of listening skills for levels A1 - C1 in English and in Spanish and A1 - B1 in German.
Students will have 24 hours to cancel a class if they for some reason they cannot attend. If the class is cancelled on the day, the class fee will still be charged but the travel costs shall not.
