Ayob's Resume

I am submitting my resume to request a dialogue about a possible opportunity to work at your institute.
My teaching experience in Mexico extends from Universidad del Noreste, Universidad Autonoma Centro de Idiomas (CELEX), Tec de Monterrey Tampico, Universidad del Valle de Mexico SLP, Universidad Tangamanga, and Harmon Hall Language School in San Luis Potosi and Ciudad Juarez. I have also taught Social Studies, History, Geography and Literature to secondary school students at Coligio Americano, a bilingual school in Ciudad Juarez.
I am CELTA certified through Language Studies Canada. I have a BA in Counseling, and a diploma in Social Work from Seneca College in Toronto Canada.
I am an experienced traveler and I have an eclectic approach to cultural diversity. I am honest, hard working, patient, creative, disciplined, and motivated. My experience in mentoring and facilitating youth and adults has helped me to draw on my life skills and resources. I have learned that effective teaching incorporates a combination of empathy, respect, communication and imagination. My teaching experience allowed me to implement both the theoretical and applied techniques I have learned.
I strongly believe my extensive experience and education allow me to create an engaging, interactive, student centered classroom environment. I know I will be a valuable asset on your team. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of my application. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mr. Ayob is one of the best english teachers that I ever had. He loves teaching and also gives the extra mile in all his classes. You don't get boring with his talks, ha has interested topics to share. Also, he listens his students, not only if you have problems with his class. If you have any kind of problem, and you need to tell someone, he listens to you. You can learn a lot of things about the life with him. He's very comprehensive. He makes you work hard and give your best. If you want to learn english, and speak it, he's the best option :)
