I am currently working as an English teacher at Visa English Academy in Manizales, Colombia.

English Teacher   ; | Travel Language School | March 2012- September 2012
I worked for a school based in Bogota called Travel Language School. I worked strictly via Skype from my apartment in New York. I taught classes Monday thru Thursday from 6pm to 10 pm via Skype. I helped the students improve their grammar and pronunciation. I developed lessons for adults using a variety of materials and methods. My classes via Skype ranged from Basic English to Advance English. I gave classes on Business English, from how to improve your business vocabulary, and topics used in the worlds of business, and international relations. The bulk of the class work consisted of having one on one conversations with each student for approximately 5-10 minutes. In each one on one session, we would have conversations pertaining to each student’s area of interest. Other topics included communication skills used in the workplace, and language and skills needed for typical business communication.
Teacher Volunteer &n
| Blue Dreams, Medellin, Colombia | February 2012- March 2012
I volunteered in Blue Dreams in Medellin, Colombia for a month. Blue Dream is a non-profit organization created to generate progressive alternatives, comprehensive management, and outreach to vulnerable communities. They promote and improve development in a manner that strengthens the community with the execution of plans, programs, and projects that encourage positive change in the daily life of community members. During my month in blue dreams I gave English classes to kids of many ages. My main focus in blue dreams was to develop and improve the pronunciation of the children and also improve their grammar.
English Teacher |English Teaching Center, Barranquilla, Colombia| February 2011- December 2011
I taught English at a Teaching House in Barranquilla, Colombia. I gave classes on Saturdays to groups of children from 5th to 8th grade. I designed activities and lessons for students of all levels. The students ranged from beginners, false beginners, all the way to intermediate. I helped students improve their pronunciation using a variety of materials and methods. This experience helped me grow more as an English teacher. It not only gave me the confidence that I needed, but it also made me love my job even more. Teaching children of all ages helped me become more creative, disciplined and more patient. It helped me to develop a passion for teaching English. The most important thing that I learned from teaching children was how to manage a classroom.
