I have taught English as a Second Language for more than 6 years. During that time, I developed the class curriculum as well as the materials used. In an effort to encourage English usage in the classroom, I created conversational and interactive games and activities to stimulate conversation between students from various (and diverse) countries. Getting students to feel comfortable using the English language is only one of my strengths in this area. Grammar, vocabulary and writing were also part of the classroom activities. Additionally, I worked with students who were working on their GED education while simultaneously learning English.
