Certified (CELTA) ESL teacher with international experience for all levels in CALGARY

Methodology

I have a broad range of methods including TPR (Total Physical Response) for teaching and supporting English language learners of all ages, helping them to meet set goals. I strive to make the learning process interactive, exciting, and fun. Having lived and worked outside Canada for over 20 years I am able to communicate across cultural lines and adapt to student needs.

Background

I have spent 18 years working with non - native English learners in American International Schools as a Teaching Assistant and 2 years as a teacher in an English Language school preparing students for the IELTS examinations as well as teaching all levels of English language learners. My academic background is the Cambridge university Certificate in Teaching English Language (CELTA)
