My name is Lucy and I’m an English as a Second Language teacher. I received my Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the University of San Francisco in the U.S.A. I chose to pursue a Master’s degree in TESOL, because I saw how my parents struggled with learning the English language when they immigrated to the United States, not only did I see them struggle, but also those immigrants around them. In addition, on my free time I would tutor those who were learning the English language, and I noticed that I started to enjoy the process of teaching, helping those who are in need, and learning about their cultures. In result, I decided that my next step would be to become a professional in this field, so that’s when I took the big leap and chose it as my career path. As I was studying I published one of my articles “Building a language BRIDGE” in The New Teacher Advocate journal. I attended several trainings to make myself a better educator. I have 5+ years of experience teaching and tutoring students ages 3-18.
The course that I’m interested in teaching is an English language course. The course depending on the students age group will include speaking, listening, writing and reading. Since this is an online course we will use online resources such as educational websites, games and videos.
