Dear Sir or Madam:
I am a citizen of the United States and a native speaker of English with teaching experience in North America and the Middle East. I have privately tutored international English Foreign Language students preparing for their IELTS and TOEFL exams in the United States, Canada, and Iran. Most of my students received the scores they needed to enter the North American college or university of their choice.
Last year, I received the advanced level-Two, TESL Ontario, TESL Canada diploma. This degree program entailed 330-hours of coursework, including 50-hours of practicum. While fulfilling my practicum requirements, I prepared lesson plans for international students, with varying levels of English language proficiency from East Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. I developed lesson plans and taught ESL classes at two different career colleges in Toronto, Canada. I also taught ESL classes at a private home-school for international students, in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
Before teaching ESL, I worked as a design architect, a project architect, and a construction permit runner for over fifteen years. As an architect, I had the responsibility for tutoring and mentoring my younger colleagues in office procedures to maintain a consistent workflow. Additionally, I instructed several of my co-workers on the use of (BIM) Building Information Modeling software, such as Revit, and Archi-CAD. In 2015, after more than two decades study and work in the construction and design industry, I made the decision to switch careers and pursue my keen interest in teaching and second language acquisition.
Hopefully, my technical expertise and professional work experience in Architecture, Design, and the Construction industry will make me a valuable member of your teaching staff. Kindly, send me an email, if you have any further questions or if you wish to set up an appointment for a Skype interview.
