Methodology

My teaching method for this class will be instructor led and material focused. In each two hour class, we will cover one writing chapter together from the book "Basic Composition for ESL" by Jann Huizenga, Courtenary Snellings and Gladys Francis. There are six units (one for each type of paragraph) and each unit has three chapters. The course will require 40 hours to complete, not including homework.

Background

I am an ESL Instructor for Adults. I worked eighteen years for the York Catholic District School Board and three years for the Simcoe County District School Board. During that time I taught all CLB levels from one to eight. I've also taught TOEFL, pronunciation, writing and citizenship classes. I graduated from the University of York in Toronto where I studied both Psychology and English.

Juan is a really good teacher. He is always serious about teaching and his students. He's very familiar with the culture of Canada, and that provided all of his students to feel more welcome. I, personally really miss his classes as every person in our class respected him as a very experienced teacher.

Juan is superb. He is so knowledgeable and teaches English from the aspect of native speakers. He also teaches Canadian cultures which helped me greatly to adapt my new environments. He sees needs of each students and responds them throughly and respectfully. The best part is he has great sense of humor and I had never gotten bored in his class!

Juan is one of the best teachers that I have ever seen. The way he works with the student is totally different. When you participate in his class you will learn much more than English skills. He is using up to date news which includes all the since to keep the student up to date besides learning English. He is so creative and uses different ways to teach students.
