ESL / English Teacher
Last Updated: 17th February 2019 (over 3 years ago)
I am an English Cameroonian, who has more than 10 years of teaching experience both in my home country and abroad. I am a holder of a Bachelor of Art Degree in English Language/ Linguistics. I am TEFL certified as well. I am excited about the English teaching vacancy in your school.
Through out my teaching career, I have come to understand the need for educating a whole person. Hence, my vision is to educate a global citizen in a holistic way. I am passionate about helping all learners achieve their potentials and I believe all learners can learn if teachers use differentiated instruction and inclusion alongside other teaching methods.
My teaching experience in China from 2004 - 2011 helped me understand Asian students to a greater extent. Through out my career in China, I taught the American curriculum and the Cambridge Check-point program at two international schools respectively. I did not only teach English but taught social studies as well. I can teach across all levels from Kids to adults.
Beside my experience as a middle school language art teacher, I also have experience training post-secondary students to write the IELTS examination. I can teach across the different levels, including adults’ lessons. I am also very patient and comfortable when it comes to teaching the kindergarten age group.
For the last five years of my career, I have been working in a primary school, as a grade 4 Language art teacher and Oral English teacher across the different grade levels. In addition to this responsibility, i was a program coordinator, supervising the implementation of the curriculum. I made sure teachers understood the content and also provide in-service training sessions as part of professional development. I believe my varied experiences would make me an asset to your school.
It is my goal to combine my range of experiences with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, dedicated, intelligent and student-centered teacher who will make a positive contribution to your school and community at large. Hire me and you will not regret it. I have confidence in what I can deliver. I look forward to hearing from you. I am ready to start immediately. My contact number is , 0896404423
