Trenton W.

University of Oregon, California State University San Marcos

I have a 150-hour TEFL certification and a Masters in Business Administration degree. I excel at teaching English to children and business English to adults online.

My journey into teaching English as a Foreign Language has been driven by a profound interest in diverse cultures and a desire to facilitate cross-cultural communication. I believe that language is not merely a tool for communication but also a gateway to understanding and appreciating different perspectives. Throughout my academic and professional endeavors, I have consistently sought opportunities to engage with individuals from various backgrounds, enriching my own understanding while fostering meaningful connections. I completed the 150-hour IDELT online course offered by Bridge, which equipped me with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills essential for effective language instruction. This rigorous training program has deepened my understanding of language acquisition theories, pedagogical approaches, and classroom management techniques. Armed with this knowledge, I am eager to employ innovative teaching methods tailored to meet the diverse needs of my students. One of my key strengths lies in my ability to personalize instruction to suit the unique learning styles and objectives of each student. I firmly believe that effective teaching goes beyond delivering content; it involves building rapport, identifying individual strengths and weaknesses, and fostering a supportive learning environment. By incorporating authentic materials, real-life scenarios, and interactive activities into my lessons, I strive to engage and empower students to actively participate in their language learning journey. I am particularly drawn to your opportunity because of your reputation for excellence in language education and its commitment to fostering global citizenship. I am eager to contribute my skills and enthusiasm to your esteemed institution, collaborating with fellow educators to create enriching learning experiences that inspire curiosity and promote intercultural understanding.
