Teacher Case Studies
Language Taught: English
Years of teaching experience: 13
What language do you teach, and why did you choose teaching as your career?
I teach English as a second —or other—language. I come from a long line of teachers: both parents, aunts, and uncles are all teachers. To me, there is no career more rewarding. I love to see that sparkle in the eyes of my students when they start to understand. Knowledge is power and I want all of my students to have everything they need to succeed in any endeavor they choose.
Where did you study, how long have you been teaching, and what age group do you usually teach?
My focus has been Business English for the most part –however not exclusively. I’ve taught all levels from beginner to advanced. I studied English literature at Fullerton College in Fullerton, California and journalism at University of North Texas. I have the TEFL certification and have completed The Compton Method of Accent Reduction.
What do you look for in a student?
I love to see a motivated student. I also make it my mission to give students the confidence they need. I try to make sure classes are interesting and seek to motivate them through my own desire to learn.
What should students expect in you as a teacher?
Students should expect and receive a program which suits their individual needs. My curriculum is very specific to each student, built according to what they wish to focus on. As a teacher, I will push them; it might get repetitive, and their jaw muscles may hurt, but we will always have fun.
What’s your teaching secret to success?
I always tell my students, “Together, we can do this!” I have said that to all of them. I want their feedback. It helps me build lessons plans specifically for them. I have seen programs that worked, and those that didn’t. From these and throughout my 13 years of teaching ESL, I build successful lessons plans that work for my student.
Describe your favorite aspect of working with Language Trainers.
I get so much support from the team. I’m used to having to bear everything on my own, so the support I get from Language Trainers is essential. From materials for the students, to great links to books, I trust them to send me the best resources. I’ve been working with Language Trainers for three years and I can say with all honesty, they are one of the best schools I have worked with. They care about the students and want the best teaching experience and outcome for them.
Client Case Studies
“My rather ambitious goal was to be able to speak, read, and write Italian and Lia has helped me work towards that.”A Passion for Italian
Language Trainers: Good morning Luvaghn, how are you?
Luvaghn Brown: I’m well, thanks.
Language Trainers: Good to hear. Thanks for taking the time to chat. So, tell us, which language did you study with Language Trainers, and which level were you when you began your course?
Luvaghn Brown: I began studying Italian about three months ago, after being referred to Language Trainers by a friend. I wouldn’t say I was a beginner, as prior to that I knew basic words and phrases, but Lia, my trainer, helped bring it all together.
Language Trainers: Why Italian? What was your reason and what were your goals?
Luvaghn Brown: I’ve traveled to Italy a few times and plan on going back in the future. It’s beautiful there. I love the people and the food. While many speak English in the larger cities, the next time I go I want to be able to speak with people in the small towns we visit. Also, I have friends who are Italian and who speak Italian, and I want to converse with them in their native language.
Language Trainers: How have the classes been going, then?
Luvaghn Brown: They’re going well. My rather ambitious goal was to be able to speak, read, and write Italian and Lia has helped me work towards that. I renewed my classes with her because she was such a great teacher. She uses different materials during lessons: movie clips, slide shows, poems, history and entertaining sayings I translate.
Language Trainers: You said you have friends who speak Italian. Have they commented on your progress? Do you now speak Italian with them?
Luvaghn Brown: Yes, while my speaking ability is still a bit limited, we converse in Italian and they, like Lia, are very supportive and have noted my progress.
Language Trainers: What would you say was the best part of your Language Trainers course?
Luvaghn Brown: Lia, my instructor. It’s tough to put in a nutshell just one reason why she’s been so helpful and motivating. There’s a lot. One of the things I most like is that she keeps me interested by varying the lessons so that I learn about the people and the country as I tackle difficult aspects of the language; like verbs! Her lesson plans include different cultural aspects of Italy. She makes it so much more than just about seeing Italian words on a piece of paper.
Language Trainers: That’s great to hear you and your friend had such a good experience with us. Would you, in turn, recommend Language Trainers?
Luvaghn Brown: Yes, I would recommend Language Trainers and Lia to anyone interested in learning Italian.
Language Trainers: You’ve mentioned your interest in a lot of the different materials Lia uses during your lessons. Before concluding, tell us, is there anything you’ve read — a certain cultural aspect you’ve studied or interesting text—that really sticks in your memory?
Luvaghn Brown: There were several; a poem and slide show about the central square in Bologna, the difference between how Italians use their fingers when counting, a beautiful piece, Il vero anonimo mago, about a UNICEF worker, and a very informative piece about the history of Rome, Roma: un museo all’aperto!
