What is your view on teaching?
Students should talk more than the teacher. It’s the teacher’s responsibility to guide students and point out to them language and grammar errors. It’s essential that teachers provide a safe environment for students to communicate in. Also, let’s get excited about grammar!
How was your first week teaching at AOI?
Exciting & promising.
What made you decide to teach ESL?
I love learning languages and I think communication is a unique experience for every individual; it’s wonderful to facilitate communication. Also, it’s such a joy to have the opportunity to interact with people from so many different cultures on a daily basis. And have I mentioned I am serious about grammar?
My hopes and expectations are that students feel confident that they’re improving and are excited about language learning; that I embarrass myself only when necessary and that students never say “She like it” again.
