“Hello! I have been an ESL teacher for about 13 years. I hold a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Education, specializing in teaching English. Since I am Venezuelan, I speak Spanish too. I always wanted to help others understand English and love English as much as I do. I was a university instructor in Venezuela, where I taught several English courses, grammar, and literature to future English teachers before I came to Canada. In my most recent teaching experience, I have been helping learners from different cultural backgrounds improve their English communicative abilities. To do this, I talk to the learners to understand their needs and plan lessons that focus on what they want to learn and improve. In addition to this, I have also tutored students who want to get better test results. I make sure that students feel comfortable expressing themselves and seeing their progress with each passing day. Finally, like most teachers, I am a lifelong learner, and I like to learn about other people’s cultures using the English language as a means of communication.”
