An experienced, multiple award-winner teacher of English in Richmond Hill, Ontario is prepared to help you with your challenging lessons, writing fundamentals and all school assignments and projects.

Methodology

My teaching methods comprise direct lessons by analyzing models or exemplary work. Students learn to grow lens how to create content and organize it into specific formats by method. Through ongoing Q&A, feedback and reteaching strategies my students learn how to look at literary work and what to look for; they create written work by appropriate methods required by teachers and professors. Students use my variety of rubrics to model their work after and be able to self-assess and align their work with the criteria to achieve the highest quality results. Once students know the structure and design of a writing piece, they are able to recreate it. They learn also how to upgrade their work by editing and revising strategies. I help students with pre-made maps, organizers, and blank outlines to go through production of written work with precision and confidence.

Background

I am a veteran English teacher with great passion for teaching communication skill through reading and writing. I have worked in international schools overseas teaching students of all walks English for over 15 years and have been promoted to English Academic Head position. In Toronto, I have taught English in two private high schools and been appraised by the inspectors of Ministry of Education time after time, receiving an A+ mark from 5 inspector. My students are uniquely successful when in university; they master writing essays of all types, analyzing literature of all types and write critical analysis, literary comparative & argumentative essays as well as short & long responses to reading literary work. As such, they end up in high school, college and university capable and confident of their reading and writing skills and achieve high in their written assignments. The success of my students back in their respective schools of all levels is an index of their success with learning in my classes. In year 2000, I was awarded by Cambridge University as one of the 200 outstanding teachers of the year.
