What makes me a great teacher?
I am currently learming to teach English as a second language at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada. I teach conversational English , in classes one hour in length, twice a week, to several foreign students from a variety of countries, including China, Korea, Iran, Iraq, Ethiopia, and Taiwan. I enjoy doing this very much and look forward to doing this online. I have done this in the past with two young French high school students who live in Paris, using Skype or just the telephone. Doing this in a new way is exciting for me.
I am a retired public servant who worked in the Canadian federal government for 32 years. My mother tongue is English and I speak French and a little Russian, having studied French and Russian at high school and at university. I have a Masters of Education, with a specialty in Educational Psychology, which I did in my seond language, French. I thus have a great appreciation for second language learners.
I have travelled extensively, do a considerable amount of volunteer work and continue to look forward to new challenges and meeting new people from far away lands. I look forward to this new teaching experience.
