I truly believe education is a vital key in not just achieving your dreams but in realizing yourself! I don't just preach it but practice this myself as I am currently 3 classes away from obtaining my Dual Master's degree in Business Administration and International Studies in Consumer Behavior. I truly understand the life of being a student and the constant challenge to grow. My professional experiences, outside of teaching, have been on the cusp of creative and business where fashion/apparel are concerned, having been a model, boutique owner and event coordinator.
My journey working with children started in my high school years working in recreational centers. Then post-college, I worked as an teaching assistant in the Twin Cities, aiding students with autistic and special learning needs. The experience was truly special and has gave me my great appreciation towards teaching. From that, my skills and teaching approach grew from understanding how to personalize my lessons for individual needs and goals. Since those early days, I have worked as as Literature & Theatre Arts ESL high school teacher, tutor and curriculum writer for schools and english centres in Shanghai, China over the last three years. My students in Shanghai ranged from K-12 and to adults as well. I have enjoyed helping all those students grow their abilities in english as language is one of the real last barriers in this new global world.
Moving forward, I welcome learners of all ages! Beyond ESL needs, I am also very familiar with test prep, Pre-IB, PYP MYP and IB programs. For college students or ESL adults, I am also interested in working with those looking to gain in better understanding in subjects such business and marketing. Also feel free to contact me with special project needs.
