Mandarin Speaking Experienced English Second Language High school Teacher San Antonio TX

Methodology

Languages cannot be taught like all the other subjects because languages are not learnt like other subjects . We learn languages differently, therefore they must be taught differently.
As an ESL teacher, I have extensive training in Second Language Education techniques and approaches. I not only have an in-depth knowledge of how the English language works, I also know how other languages work, how is a second language learnt and of course how to most effectively teach languages.
I base all of my English teaching off proven language learning principles while incorporating teaching methods derived from proven language acquisition theories.
With all my students, I assess their language proficiently and figure out what exactly are their individual needs. I then design my classroom lessons to focus on each student’s functional English level in terms of their listening, speaking, reading and writing abilities.
In my teaching I use a communitive approach and task-based learning activities to help my students acquire English with accuracy and fluency.
Some other features of my teaching include:
• Creative use of Technology in the Classroom
• Differentiation
• Task-Based Learning Activities
• Fluency and Accuracy Activities
• Lesson Planning
• Assessing Students’ Individual Needs
• Curriculum Development
• Group and Personal Tutoring
• Speaking & Listening Teaching Strategies
• Reading & Writing Teaching Strategies
• Personal Learning Plans (PLP)

My role does not end when classes does, I am also passionate about cultivating extracurricular activities at school or in the community which provide English language learners to more opportunities to interacting with the language and culture.

Background

Hello! My name is Corey, and I am teacher who is wildly passionate about building a genuine relationship with English language learners who come from every corner of the world and serving their educational and linguistic needs. My focus area is Teaching English as a Second/foreign language. I mostly enjoy working with middle and high school English language learners.
As an English Language teacher, I do not merely teach grammar and speaking but I also teach students how to use the English language pragmatically and meaningfully with cultural accuracy and native like fluency.
To do this I not only know the cultural nuances associated with English, but I also understand my students’ cultural and linguistic background to insure they feel valued in a safe learning environment.
