My name is
My name is Michaela and I am a 20year old female living in Johannesburg South, South Africa. I am fluent in both English and Portuguese and I have dual Nationality for both countries. I have recently completed my TEFL 150hr Masters Course through Learn TEFL Academy and ask to be considered to be your au pair.
Throughout the course I obtained 80% and above for all my tests and assignments as I found the modules insightful and interesting. In terms of my final result, I obtained an overall A on my certificate upon completion. The course taught me the different levels for different learners and ways in which I, as an ESL Teacher, may adapt my teachings to suit the learners and increase their interest in the subject.
I have previous work experience as a sales representative and insurance broker which its skills, I believe, may prove useful as an ESL teacher because when given training, I was taught to always put the needs of the customer first as well as build a relationship with them.This proves to be useful as I am able to communicate with my students on a level that also makes them respect me but never fear
to ask for help or to involve themselves in activities. It also proves to be useful as I put my students needs first through revision of certain topics and the re-explanation or the use of different methods to assist the student in understanding the language more.
I am asking to be considered for this job as I am a fast learner, young and driven. I have useful skills and also speak Portuguese and English fluently. I aim to grow within your company as the ESL/TEFL Tutor and reach my individual goals as well as help people learn a new language to better their chances at succeeding in the world.
I have babysat children ages 1-5. I have also assisted in supervising schoolwork of teenagers as part of my educational work experience, I was in a tutoring/homework group who were responsible for assisting kids daily.
