description of :
I am a teacher that is dedicated to the success of her students. This is ensured by my dedication to updating myself through extra qualification courses in order to keep me up to date on the best teaching methods that I can use to help my students in return.

After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child and Youth Studies, I went on to teaching English as a second language at the adult level. From here, while taking additional qualification courses in Reading Part 1, Teaching Combined Grades, Special Education Part 1 and ESL part 1 and completing my Bachelor of Education, I was able to teach ESL both in online and classroom settings.

When I am not teaching, I can be found volunteering and creating music on the piano, clarinet and sax.
 
Teacher's qualifications:
Objective

To work in a setting where I can hone my newly acquired teaching skills in a classroom setting.

's preferred teaching style:
My teaching style involves an integrated approach where I release responsibility onto the students for their own learning. This gradual release of support from me onto the students helps students to become motivated for their own learning and in return are able to succeed at their potential.
