Qualified and experienced teacher in English as a first language and TEFL, with 5 years of private TEFL teaching at English language schools and at home, and experience teaching English in Kurdistan,

Methodology

My teaching methodology is to make the subject as interesting and fun as possible. I design and develop my own lessons - when it's one-on -one teaching, I get to learn how each individual student learns best, and design my lessons to achieve optimal learning. I love to make my lessons creative, and i can "think on my feet" very quickly. My lessons are always interactive and I would find ways to make a shy, lacking in confidence non-native English student attain that confidence and willingness to speak freely. Feedback I've had from students is that they find my lessons engaging, fun, and they come to classes excitedly. I have never had to 'market' myself - I ended up being busy from Sunday to Sunday with home tutoring - this was all by word of mouth and recommendations. Thus, my lessons would include role-play asking students what scenarios they would like to role -play; I always take my cue from them to make the lesson as relevant and appropriate to their own lives. Even the 'boring' grammar, which they have difficulty with, is creative and built into a fun, active lesson. I'd write my own stories which they can relate to, which inspires them to write their own stories too. Also cartoon stories where they have to tell the story, quizzes, games, puzzles, etc.
In Iraq, I was asked to stay there permanently, but that wasn't possible as I have my family all here. I am still in contact with some of my colleagues and students there, and helping them with English and other challenges.

EMPLOYMENT HISTORY:

Ronaki Private Primary School : Teacher of English speaking to the entire school - this amounted to 84 classes per week. Then I was requested with extra remuneration, to teach teachers on a Saturday for 4 hours in classroom English. Received a certificate of excellence as an English teacher.
This was a year contract, but it was cut short with the pandemic, and my family insisting that I return home, so it was 9 months.

2014 - 2016: TEFL teaching at 2 private English language schools.
2013 - 2016 : Tutored local students in English, Maths and Biology.
2016 - 2019: Tutored foreign students attending English language schools on a one -on -one basis at my home.
1999 - 2012: Department of Labour. Workshopping Life-skills to youth( high school drop-outs) in communities, career counselling, psychometric testing. Selected to Train the trainer and set up Career Counselling centres nationally. The only Psychometrist in our unit to do testing nationally. My studies in Psychology helped immensely in my teaching methodology, as it was most useful for classroom management challenges, like discipline, anger, low confidence, low self-esteem, anxiety, peer pressure, and other emotional and psychological issues students face.
1992 - 1999: Assistant Librarian at a Municipal Public Library. I was responsible for purchasing of library resources, and had to do book reviews for other libraries.
1984 -1992: Teacher of English at local state run High schools.
1979 - 1982: Library assistant at Municipal libraries.
