My experience as an instructor and scholar make me a strong candidate to become your tutor.
I believe that my experience as an English Instructor with Intensive English Programs and at the university level makes me a great tutor. During this last summer I taught English for Tamwood International College at their Intensive English Program in Los Angeles. The courses I taught included beginning, intermediate, and advanced courses in the fields of writing, oratory, and grammar. In this position, I created and implemented my own curriculum and contributed to the formalization of a standard curriculum for different language levels within the school. Prior to Tamwood, I instructed English for two years at Eastern Washington University. In this position, I taught English 112, a composition course designed for multilingual students entering the university. I also taught English 101, a composition course that stresses exposition and argumentation. During my time at Eastern, I also had an internship with American Asian University Intensive English Language Program where I was able to assist various English instructors in the classroom.
My research as a scholar complements and enhances my work as an English instructor. In the spring of 2013, I received a Master of Arts in English with an emphasis on Teaching English as a Second Language from Eastern Washington University. During this program, I demonstrated a scholarly interest in the areas of second language acquisition, second language curriculum design and assessment, and composition pedagogy for ESL students. My thesis, Non-Cognitive Factors in Second Language Acquisition and Language Variety, reflect these overlapping research interests. My Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs and minors in Economics and Communications have strengthened my ability to teach English to a broad range of students.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to serving you!
