During the past 8 years, I have been able to develop my teaching abilities that create a productive learning environment. Most recently, I worked as a Learning Facilitator at Darunsikkahalai Innovative School of Learning in Bangkok, Thailand, where I taught 9th and 10th grade students English and Social Studies using the Constructionism theory. In October 2017, I departed for Ziguinchor, Senegal to be an U.S. Fulbright English Teaching Assistant for nine months. I assisted teachers in a secondary school to improve foreign students' English language abilities.
I began my teaching career in 2011 as a chess teacher in Alabama. Since then, I completed English teacher training in Sierra Leone as a Peace Corps Volunteer, worked as a classroom aide in a special needs school, taught English and chess at a Moroccan youth center (using French), and volunteered as a chess coach.
From my experiences, I understand the importance of being prepared but flexible when explaining concepts. I love to engage students by doing hands-on and engaging activities. I believe that encouragement and patience are essential for the student's success, something I strive for. My classroom techniques, which incorporate these skills, were effective enough that I received special recognition after six months of working at St. Coletta, a special needs school. The success of the activity depended on a great deal of preparation, innovation, engagement, enthusiasm, and encouragement. These skills are easily transferable to tutoring sessions to enrich the student's learning experience. I enjoy contributing to a student's learning and growth, and hope to do so as a Varsity tutor.
