Ever since learning the TEFL ESA method I have been really fond of that. I enjoy balancing fun activities with fun learning. I studied Creative Writing and Journalism at university, so I enjoy creating lessons that allow the students to be creative but also value the importance of learning pragmatic English that they'll see in everyday life.
I have been teaching for around 4 years on and off.
Just came back from teaching abroad in Colombia as a ESOL teacher for nearly 2 years, where I had high praise from the teachers and students.
I have taught both individuals and up to classes of 10 to both adults and children from 9 years of age.
Job Desired: Teaching English as a Second Language
I am an experienced English (as a second language) teacher; having taught in multiple countries to both adults and children. I have made lessons using existing textbooks as well as making my own lessons. I have completed TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURSE (TEFL). I finished this course in 2019.
My philosophy for teaching is to create an engaging environment where students will naturally grow into the language. As someone who is eager to create conversation, I enjoy enabling discussion for students so that they can voice their opinions. I believe my warm and cooperative attitude lets my students feel secure and positive. I like to gain feedback from my students and receive advice from colleagues so that I can be an ever evolving teacher. Having worked in 1-1 classes as well as group classes; as I am a capable worker and thinker as well as a compassionate person who appreciates people's contribution and effort to create exciting results.
I completed my Journalism and Creative Writing degree from the University for the Creative Arts, UCA Farnham with 2:2 Honours, in June 2017. Always having a great passion for reading and literature, I had the great opportunity to study varied books, as well as write my own pieces. We also had the chance to critique other students' work, encouraging my crititical eye and ability to give feedback. This means I have a good understanding of language and the nuances of storytelling. Within Journalism, my main interest was in arts and culture, where I wrote about a variety of topics including gallery viewings, art discussions, and music presentations. I continued to write for a small online magazine (Vulturehound) afterwards writing art reviews. ((concealed information)
Before going to university I completed my art foundation year with a DISTINCTION grade at University for the Creative Arts, UCA Epsom studying Fashion Promotion. I was greatly encouraged to draw freely during this time. I learnt additional skills such as: styling, photography, and Photoshop. At this time I perfected how to to organise projects myself to create the best results. My understanding and relentless attitude towards work influenced my final successes.

Employment history and experience (from most recent to less recent):
Winston Salem English School (June 2018-July 2019):
-Winston Salem is an English academy for adults and teens in Colombia. Prior to this employment I was only experienced with young children, so I had to adapt and learn how to teach adults. It was a fulfulling and eye opening experience to the field of teaching for me.
-Their teaching methods are based around AUDIO LINGUISM. Most lessons I gave the students were listening exercises to enhance vocabulary and listening skills, or give them grammatical and pronunciation advice.
-There were also opportunities to do conversational classes that I organised myself.
-I could experiment with different teaching styles, games, as well as have an organised schedule that I was dedicated to.
English Language Tutoring/ Classroom lessons (2015-Feb 2018):
-In England while I was studying in University I was actively tutoring English language to children ages 9-11 and adults at different academic levels and skills.
-This is either on a 1-1 level (tutoring) or in a classroom environment.
-In Korea I taught in a religious summer school. (One month of 2016, and 2017)
Skills I've learnt: Planning lessons, controlling a classroom, making educational activities fun, doing crafts and enjoying company of children and adults in a learning environment.
