Through the teaching experiences I have engaged in my life, I have understood how important is to enhance students' willingness to study and their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject.
Indeed, I have always loved studying, as well as reading and writing, and I would like to share this interest with any person who wants to study English.
I will briefly mention some of the teaching experiences that helped me gaining a fair level of understanding of pupils.
I have participated in an internship in a Kindergarten in Italy and I have volunteered in a refugees' camp as an Italian teacher as well. I have also tutored a teenager for a whole academic year, teaching her the English Language and helping her with homework and class tests, as well as with the improvement of writing, speaking, reading and listening skills.
Additionally, I have been an au pair for six months and I have helped two very young children to do their homework in all subjects at Primary School as part of my daily tasks.
I have also volunteered in a Primary School near Falkirk and in a project called “Conversational English” for the University of Glasgow. I have indeed helped a foreign lady to improve her confidence in speaking English both in front of formal and informal contexts.
I recently worked as a self-employed English tutor, finding students through the website “Tutora ltd”.
Finally, I have just completed a 120-Hour TEFL Course with distinction. I am a native speaker of Italian and I have an advanced

Assisted young children between the grades of preschool to 8th grade in their education. I decided to volunteer because the children of today will be the children of the future and the more smart and educated they are the better they will be in the future. Another reason I helped was because it is hard for young children to adapt to the lifestyle of constantly moving from one place to another. Since their parents are migrants it can have a negative impact on them and their education. I remember one little girl is from Florida but every summer her parents move up to Michigan to work in the fields, but once the harvest is over they move back to Florida. She was behind in school and with the help of teachers and myself we motivated and helped her out so she was able to catch up. I really enjoyed volunteering the past two summers ago at the summer migrant program. If I had another opportunity to help I
I moved to America from Albania when I was little. English was not my first language so, I had to learn it by practicing my fellow classmates' example. I was a part of HILT, High-Intensity Language Training, in elementary school to help my language barriers. Before middle school began, teachers thought I no longer needed HILT. It was because I had worked hard to get be in the same place most other students were in. In high school, I found things I was passionate about. In my sophomore year, I joined Future Business Leaders of America and became joined the mentor
From Opon's class there was talk about doing some kind of language support for Brenna Daughtery (very low in language usage and at data mtg. Bridget suggested support in Language) and she can fit in for me to work with her from 11:00-11:30. I would have to find grammar, writing, etc. types of things to work with her, I think. Possibly
I have assisted with babysitting and being involved with leadership clubs, however, this past summer was the best voluntarily experience I have ever done. I volunteered at the San Fernando Recreation Park’s summer day camp for eight weeks. Not only was I being prepared to become a counselor, but I obtained skills there, such as patience and responsibility.
Every summer between 7th grade and my freshman year of college, I would volunteer at a local summer program. This consisted of helping the teachers come up with lesson plans, activities, and games to play. During my last two years, I gained more responsibilities as the “Head Leader in Training” and managed the other volunteers, while designating tasks and responsibilities. I continued working with and coming up with activities during undergrad through the organization Project Literacy. After going over the lessons with the students, we would have a group activity or play a variety of sports with them. Working with children
After School Tutor (9th-12th) The past four years I have tutored a variety of students. I normally tutor four days a week either during my study hall or after school. I primarily tutor dyslexic students in math and science. I also help
I volunteered at the Atrium Court Apartments as an aid to a Tutor that would come in and help the kids who lived around the apartments with their homework and any other necessary needs. At first, it was difficult for me to balance my work schedule and volunteer schedule but gradually I learned how to manage work, school and volunteering and it felt like an accomplishment. I worked with and helped all the kids with the Mrs. Farrow, who was the Tutor in charge and conducted this after school program. At first it was hard for many kids to accept a stranger who would help them besides Mrs. Farrow but eventually, they were okay with me teaching them. As I started going gradually I started getting to know the kids a little more. Some louder than
In my junior of high school I volunteered, through the educational program Scholars, at a middle school called Tomas Rivera Middle School. As I already had experience tutoring students because of my position as a certified avid tutor in my middle school, I quickly became involved. I worked with students falling in mathematics and English learners. I was in charge of 2 distinct groups. The first, were 7th grade students in advanced algebra 1 and my second group was composed of 8th grade students in regular algebra 1. I worked with these dedicated students for a semester, almost every wednesday before I would go to school, for about an hour and 30 minutes.
A community service where I continually volunteer my time is the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Homework Club. I have been a part of the club for three years with the Holy Family Catholic Elementary School as a Mentor. The Homework Club is a after-school mentoring program offered to boys and girls in grades 3 to 8 who require academic, social and emotional support, and would benefit from one-to-one homework mentoring with a high school student volunteer. The Homework Club meets for one hour every week after school. Currently, I have volunteered around 80 hours with this program.
Over the past four years since John started school in Australia his level of English has improved a lot; especially his receptive use of the language. John is a talented language student and is achieving great results in both additional languages he is studying at the moment, English and Japanese. Due to his cultural background John does not volunteer to speak freely during class. This makes it hard for his teacher to find the degree of depth of his understanding of new concepts learned in class. However, he is a passionate language learner and his focus is to perfect his knowledge in both additional languages.
Currently I am an au pair for three children in Nancy, France. The differences between France and America have forced my to try new things and explore outside of my comfort zone. I have learned how to navigate a city on my own, how to quell a tantrum, and how to make a connection when smiles and nods are the only language a child understands. This experience has vastly improved my critical thinking, improvisation skills and oven me a new appreciation for both the French language and culture and America's diverse culture, something that I had taken for
