ESL InstructionOver 10 years experience teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESL/EFL), including university and high school students in Korea and the United States. Large and small groups, blended in-class and online methods. Modern approaches including cloud collaboration with students, administering team projects, sharing and evaluating student speech, and teaching how to learn independently.
High School Mathematics InstructionI was never satisfied with just memorizing formulas without knowing why they work. I started tutoring mathematics in the academic lounge of my high school and took a liking to teaching the subject. In my years of teaching mathematics at San Francisco Bay Area high schools, I have learned to promote curiosity and empower those who feel a phobia towards math. I create custom curriculum for students of varying abilities and disabilities, and enjoy teaching Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus to native speakers or ESL students. I take pride in getting to know students as individuals and motivating them accordingly.
Curriculum DevelopmentOver 10 years experience designing curriculum for ESL/EFL and mathematics students. Creative methods, modern approaches including role plays, problem-based and task-based learning, in-class and online synchronous and synchronous, individual, partner, and group projects. A focus on engaging, non-intimidating and fun approaches with the goal of building confidence and promoting retention.
Google ResourcesGrowing up in the Bay Area, I was an early adopter of Google and Gmail. Through the years, I have become an expert user of Google's growing suite of applications including Google Chrome, Drive, Docs, Forms, and more. I have set up collaborative cloud environments for dozens of classes and thousands of students. With Forms, I have created self-scoring quizzes and professional training evaluations. I stay on the cutting edge of Google developments
