Bachelor in Linguistics and French gives ESL lessons in Campbell River Has TESOL certificate

Methodology

I base my classes on my students' interest and goals. I am flexible with my lessons and will change activities if they aren't working. I like to be creative and make my lessons as fun as possible. I try to vary the types of lessons as well. One day will be a writing focused lesson and the next will be a role play. I also like to incorporate games into each lesson if I can.

Background

I have a degree in Linguistics and French and a TESOL certificate. I have 7 years of experience as an ESL teacher and tutor. I have taught all ages and levels. I recently spent a year in Tokyo, Japan teaching English to children and adults both in-person and online.

I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Toronto. I started knowing Annastasia while I was doing my master degree at the University of Victoria and I was enrolled in a program which was developed to help international students improve their oral English skills. Annastasia is a very kind and communicative person, and we had very great time together in that full year.

We had diverse learning environments - in coffee shops, library, dinner and etc, which helped broaden my vocabulary and experience in using the language. I was once invited to Annastasia's family during the summer holiday. I got know many of Annastasia's friends, who are also native English speakers. I always felt encouraged when communicating with Annastasia.

I would highly recommend Annastasia for being your tutor! She's very nice and always be ready to help you when needed. You are very welcomed to contact me for more information (lliang.uzh@gmail.com).

Hello, I met Annastasia on a one-on-one tutor program for the international student during my first-year Ph.D. studies at Uvic. She is kind, gentle and very helpful with my oral English improvement. I remembered there were three girls in our group, me, a Korean girl and Annastasia. We met once a week and communicate on a variety of topics. I was quite impressed that one time we met in her dorm to cook pancakes. Although the pancakes were not well made, the experience was quite interesting. By doing things together, I am immersed in authentic culture in Canada. I do recommend Anna as an ideal tutor to choose from since she not only has her expertise in linguistics but also a good communicator who is caring, articulate and with an open mind.

Annastasia is extremely proficient as an ESL instructor. She has excellent knowledge of her subject and is very supportive and helpful.

I met Annastasia at Mentor program of a university during study abroad in Canada.
She was always willing to invite me to some event (such as pot luck party, watching movies, hiking, cooking, and so on ), even though my English- speaking skill was poor. And through these events, she taught me practical English patiently. I really appreciate that to her.
Also, she had taught English in Japan. She always snuggled up to her students and tried to find the best way to teach English. I am assure Annastasia would be a great tutor.

Annastasia's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
1) When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Annastasia — I have always had an interest in languages. I went through the French Immersion program from kindergarten to grade 12. I also studied Spanish for 5 years. I decided to pursue Linguistics to learn more about language and how it works. I love learning and also enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. Language is fascinating and there is so much to learn.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2) What makes you passionate about your subject?
Annastasia — I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years now and I find it rewarding to help people learn and improve their English skills. As a speaker of a second and third language I understand the difficulties of learning a new language. It can be challenging!
QUESTION 03 | 05
3) What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Annastasia — I like tutoring as it's an opportunity to be one-on-one with a student or in a small group. This allows me to really get to know students on a personal level and tailor my classes according to their needs and interests. I have taught large classes and one-on-lessons both in Canada and in Japan. My experience has taught me to be aware of different learning styles and cultural differences. I have worked with young children all the way up to seniors and I am comfortable working with any age group. I plan lessons that leave room for being flexible and will change my plans based on the student's progress in the lesson. I can easily speed up or slow down a lesson as needed.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4) Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Annastasia — My middle school social studies teacher is the one who inspired me to be creative with my lessons. This teacher always tried to involve a fun activity with each unit that was taught and would give the class something to look forward to at the end of each week. When we had a test coming up we would play a game to help us review and have a friendly competition. I now always try to use games in my classes either as a review or as a break near the end of class.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5) What are your keys to success?
Annastasia — My keys to success are to never give up. Keep trying until you succeed and don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it. When studying for a test see if you can explain the concepts to a family member or friend(someone who isn't taking the class). If you can explain it to someone then you should be able to remember it for the test. Set yourself time limits for working or studying because taking breaks is important. When we schedule breaks, it helps us to stay focused. Don't forget to stand up and move around too. Give yourself deadlines before the actual due date so you have extra time if something goes wrong and reward yourself when you complete a task. Find something you can do to relax and then go back to work later. Choose one thing you need extra help on and focus on it until you feel that you've mastered it. Then choose something else. I hope these help you in the same way that they helped me.
