Experienced teacher: on how to dance Flamenco, make a Spanish Omelette... or, we can start with the language! ;)

Methodology

I will make you work! But, we can have a little fun along the way as well - as you prefer. My classes are entirely tailored to your needs, interests, level, and learning style. My classes are structured and comprehensive: at different times we will focus on progressively strengthening grammar structures, building vocabulary, building fluency, comprehension, and more.

Background

Spanish teacher, translator, and interpreter. I'm originally from the US but grew up in Spain. I have worked as a teacher for over 10 years. I taught English and Spanish in Tokyo for 4 years and in Shanghai for about 6 years.

Michelle's resume

EDUCATION
Seminole State College, Associate of Arts (Cum Laude) , Dec. 2012
TEFL Certification, July 2013
On-going Berlitz and Pearson Teacher Training sessions, From 2000 to 2015

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

ABIE (American Baby International English), Shanghai, Feb 2014 – August 2016
Director of Studies, (concealed information)
Oversaw the academic department. Developed and reviewed overviews and lesson plans. I gave several training sessions to new teachers before we hired another trainer and I began managing the training sessions. I developed and improved all training and teaching material. I made sure that all materials maintained quality standards and reflected ABIE's teaching philosophy and methodology.

DadaABC.com July 2012 – Feb. 2014
Online English teacher and consultant
One of the first online teachers for Dada ABC. I welcomed the team to observe my lessons and always provided them with my insight and feedback to continue improving the platform and User Interface. As required I submitted my thorough student report on the platform at the end of each class.

Berlitz Shanghai July 2004 – Aug 2006
Instructional Supervisor
Maintained the centers’ HR posts on various online employment portals. Scanned through applications and selected candidates for interview. I performed interviews, instructor training, class monitoring and quality assurance. Performed bi-annual Performance Evaluations, regular client reports and assisted the sales team with DEMO lessons. I served as mediator between the foreign team and local management.

Received training for the new Berlitz Children’s program for children 3-12 years old. Covered as needed for child and adult classes. Performed initial Level Assessments for new students and proficiency checks. Often had trainee instructors observe my lessons.

Berlitz Tokyo May 2000 – June 2004
English Instructor / Spanish Instructor
Taught private and group lessons. Every class was personalized based on the student’s character and learning style. I could be more serious and straightforward or more relaxed. I always followed our methodology and developed my own teaching style that did a lot to elicit self-correction from the student allowing them the time to think and try again. This helped them better understand and learn from their mistakes. It required patience on my side, which I have plenty, and I was rewarded by their feeling of accomplishment with every little step of learning they took. I was offered a position as Assistant Instructional Supervisor.
On the side, performed copyediting work for Akapen Sensei where the company would send me written student assignments that I would review and make special annotations for the student to review and learn from mistakes. My notes did not always give the correct answer but rather had the student think and guided the student to find the correct answer.
