Teacher and Coach Wichita Falls Independent School DistrictI taught 9th and 11th grade English. 9th graders are expected to pass a state exam in order to graduate. I focused on building their literacy levels in order to think, read, and write critically. I coached Basketball and Cross Country Running, which required me to ensure the safety of my students and motivate them to give their best in each practice and game.

Teacher Dallas Independent School DistrictI taught 9th graders similar skills, but at this school there was more of a focus on English as a second language as 80% of my students were immigrants or came from Spanish-speaking households.

Auxiliares de Conversación de Inglés Ministerio de Educación y Formación ProfesionalI taught English as a second language in a secondary school in Madrid. I created lessons with the goal of using all four pillars of language learning: speaking, listening, writing, and reading. I integrated many visual aids for the students, audio examples in popular songs or the Cambridge English Exam practice questions, and conducted informal and formal interviews. I played a variety of games with the students as well, to reinforce concepts taught directly.

Tutor BlueBird AcademyI have been a professional English tutor for the past year. I help my students prepare for various English exams such as: KET, PET, and FCE. I prefer working with students who already have a grasp on the English language, as I have been successful in helping motivate my students to improve and persevere with their learning goals. I have taught lower level students before, using toys, games, art, and videos to connect to their interests and create a low-stress environment.
