To Whom It May Concern,
It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my resume in consideration for a tutoring position. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in business, and I have a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education. In 2011 I had completed my 120 hour TESOL degree from ATC Academy, and became endorsed to teach Gifted children in 2012.
I am licensed to teach Gifted Education, Business, and English in the states. As an enthusiastic and approachable teaching professional, with over 12 years of hands-on teaching experience, I am confident in my ability to be able to give you the results you demand.
Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to take courses at American Higher Education, Altia Central, The English Channel, Japanese public school training programs, and Navajo Public High Schools. Through these programs located in the USA, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Japan, and New Mexico, I have learned new TESOL theories, techniques, methodologies of teaching, and secondary language acquisition.
I am very dedicated towards educating our youth as well as adults. Being a versatile educator, I have taken the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from many diverse backgrounds. As a result of many years of teaching experience, I learned many different methodologies of teaching, learned compassion, and know how to develop a program to help students with unique needs. I am an effective teacher who has specific strategies for integrating effective listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. I offer positive encouragement and reinforcement to keep students focused, motivated, and engaged.
One of the most effective ways that I assist ESL students is by developing and presenting comprehensible and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate, and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students via visual, audio, tactile, and kinesthetic methods. In addition, I integrate literature, phonics activities, and technology to ensure that each child is able to comprehend and retain the concepts and language. My goal is to foster a love of learning. I try to make all of my lessons relevant to their individual lives, and I make the activities and lessons meaningful and engaging.
I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you personally in order to discuss how my diverse skills and experience will enable me to make a valuable contribution to your team. Thank you for your time and consideration.
