Introduction:

To Whom It May Concern:

I have two years Private Home Teaching experience and I recently completed my 160HOUR Tefl course through TEFL Full Circle based in the UK. 

I enjoy teaching students from different cultures, age groups and backgrounds. I've been doing Private Home Schooling for two years and recently completed my 160Hour Tefl Full Circle course. 

To explain my personality, I am a missionary in my private time. I love people and experiencing cultures wherever I travel. I also come from a diverse background, therefore it's a part of me to try to understand, cultures and customs. Throughout my secular experiences, I have worked with many different cultures and it's been a delight to understand each of my colleague's background's. 

How do I assist the student with their self esteem and confidence? 

Firstly, by acquiring their trust and designing each lesson to be interesting.

Secondly, to make sure I'm open with the student and allow them to see I am their teacher but also a friendly, fun teacher who wants to help them, through their new experience and journey.  

Thirdly, it's very important for them to feel I accept their culture and background - show them I'm interested in their culture.  

Fourthly, by always complimenting them and rewarding them with great commendation for all their efforts. 

Therefore, teaching online suits my personality and I enjoy teaching in the comfort of my home.
