I received my ESOL endorsement on my Bachelor's degree in 2007 and have taught ESOL students since formally in various formats and school levels. For the past two years, I have been working as an online teacher for ESL learners in China and surrounding countries and have taught more than 2600 classes and 800 students. I have had many regular students for a year or more. I love reaching across miles to teach language and have met many different students and I am proud of the achievements they have made and make daily in learning and using English as a whole language. With 20 years as an educator/certified teacher and 7 years teaching and directing tutoring enrichment programs for elementary/ middle school aged students both in person and online in United States and abroad (online), I have worked with numerous ESL students over the years and enjoy developing the relationship between native language and English. When teaching, my main goal is to show every student how to better enable themselves in learning. I believe there is not one way to learn - we all have our own way to comprehend. Some students just need the confidence to believe in their way of learning. As a teacher, I first learn how they understand then teach them to use whatever tools needed to strengthen learning skills. Many times a review or new approach is what a student needs to comprehend a subject. As students gain confidence in what they have learned then new concepts are not as intimidating. Every child can succeed!
