I instructed a range of learners from secondary & university students, working professionals & other educators. At AUA, I augmented required book work with pair & group activities, interactive classroom & online games, video projects & student presentations. For our contract with a local university, I designed & taught an intensive introduction to English course for beginners studying for degrees in the tourism & hospitality sectors. Our relationship with the local training facilities of international corporations (such as Chevron) required me to teach professionals whose careers required daily use of English in the workplace. Off-site, I taught technical English, working with students to improve their listening & speaking skills as well as general fluency in their work environment. I led intensive three day seminars for non-native English teachers. We focused on improving their language skills & introducing & maintaining a communicative learning environment in their classrooms.
As co-owner of Sloris, I design jewelry and fashion accessories using 3D modeling programs such as Blender and Rhinoceros. My manufacturing partner 3D prints my designs one item at a time for each individual customer. Potential clients find my unique and artistic creations on Etsy, Shapeways and my own web site. https://sloris.com
I taught a wide variety of learners in one-to-one English lessons using Skype. Following is a selection of the class structure I used regularly. ESL Book Based: I selected a book & used this as a starting point to systematically improve the learner’s speaking, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation & comprehension skills. I added materials I’d developed & online resources. News Topics Conversation: Before class, I sent students a news article, TED talk video or other material. In class, we discussed the content of the material, our opinions & related topics. Business English: Using ESL books & materials about their industry, I helped students from entry level positions to senior management improve their business English skills. Individual Program: The student & I discussed his or her goals and the most effective ways to realize them. Some student focused on one thing (grammar or vocabulary), others preferred variety; a collocations, idioms, then conversational class.
Assist business professionals in improving their English in order to advance their careers through acceptance to a top MBA program, promotion within their current company or interviewing and networking in order to land a higher position in a new firm. I tailor a program for each client’s individual needs to help them achieve their goals.
