I have been working as an esl teacher for around 7 years. I have had the opportunity to teach students from almost of levels of education being the ones in elementary school My favorite ones since they really enjoy new and very visual activities.
I ike to draw so many of my classes will include drawing fast cartoons on the board so my students can grasp the idea better. I also like to use lots of videos and images to encourage my students to use the language by asking them guiding questions or by giving them assignments based on the material. Most people enjoy a more visual approach when learning a new language, I always to to be up-to-date in terms of what young ones like this days.
I have spent most of my teaching years living in Mexico, and attended many training courses, but in Mexico it is difficult to be recognized as an ESL teacher. I have participated in projects oriented to make English more appealing to university students.
I have an engineering background originally, but I decided to move to ESL teaching since I really like sharing my knowledge with people. I have a TESOL and IELTS certification diplomas as well as training in Competency Based Education, a very recent tendency in the Mexican education system.
I was born in Mexico from a Canadian Father, my mother is a Salvadorian. I love dinosaurs and cartoons, I also love computers and technology. I have always like teaching things to others.
