Increased the English language proficiency of my students at all levels of intensive ESL. Successfully augmented my students’ knowledge of American culture and American military culture.
Gained extreme popularity with students (some of whom I had yet to teach). Such popularity arose from my effective instructional expertise and the entertaining nature of my classes.
Received more positive evaluations from students than any other instructor. Received outstanding student reviews on http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ Motivated, inspired and encouraged my credit ESL students to improve their English competencies from beginning to advanced levels. Successfully designed all midterm tests checking for item validity and reliability. Created special student portfolios called S.P.I.L.L. (Student Proficiencies and Individual Learner Levels). My SPILL report fine-tuned and individually identified what particular ESL skills my students were deficient in. Skills included listening, speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, or spelling. Students were counseled, given assignments and assessed one on one at my desk while other students were self-engaged. Focus of the lessons were now linguistically categized and customized. Special attention to individual linguistic deficiencies was achieved through the creation and implementation of activities geared toward individual improvement(s).
