ESL Instructor.


Hi, I am interested in a teaching position for children wishing to learn English ESL. I am proficient in writing and communicating online and enjoy dealing with children and youth in an educational setting. I have tutored children and adults in a one-to-one setting. I work well independently and am very dependable, organized, and trustworthy. I enjoy influencing others through developing strong relationships. My writing reflects an expressive, optimistic, sensory, warm, and passionate approach.

Quoted by a Client: “How Shirley Can Add Value to Your Company:

  • Captivate others with a vibrant and attractive style of communication.
  • Approachable, transparent style “open book.”
  • Intuitively understand ideas and feelings of others.
  • Strategically persuade and inspire others. Incites immediate action by keeping an eye on potential negative consequences.
  • Sensitive to the demands and expectations of others.
  • Sets high expectations and establishes the structure for others to follow through.”

English is such a predominant language and is used around the globe. It is imperative that one must be well-versed and proficient in the English language to succeed in today’s commerce. If you need a teacher who has the ability in teaching English to native, and non-native students at your school, online, I present myself for your ESL teacher position.

I am confident that I can carry a high reputation of education forward at your school with my experience and skills in helping young students learn, read, write, and speak English fluently.

My passion for the English language combined with teaching skills has helped many students as a homeschool instructor and medical foster parent. You’ll see from my resume that I have taught children in learning English and other courses. I conduct classes in such a way that holds the student’s attention, and hence always meet 100% attendance. I make the lessons fun; they are exciting, very easy to grasp, stimulating, and easy to build upon.

Furthermore, my specialty also lies in maintaining precise students’ records. This kind of administrative ability helps me to track the students’ progress and customize lessons as needed.

Since the English language is no doubt popularized around the world, I feel a student must master it to become a global citizen. I would love to further discuss this with you at your convenience. Please contact me any time you are free. Thank you for reading my application.
