My English teaching experience

I'm from Irvine, California, and have been teaching English for over 10 years. Because Southern California is such a melting pot, I've been able to gain experience there teaching ESL to students from many different countries - mostly Korea, Taiwan, and China. I also recently started studying Mandarin on my own; I love the culture exchange that comes with learning a new language.

Teaching English at Compass

I wish I could study Mandarin in a place like Compass! Compass provides a great environment for English-learners to immerse themselves in the language and practice their speaking skills. I enjoy the small class sizes because I can give each student personal attention.

Learning tips to ESL learners

Be brave and speak up. The best way to learn is to put yourself out there, make mistakes, and ask questions.

大家好,我是來自美國加州爾灣市的Sarah,我從事英文教學這個行業已經有十年了。由於南加州是個文化的大鎔爐,所以我得到了很多機會去教導來自不同國家的ESL(以英語為第二語言)學生,他們主要來自韓國、台灣與中國。我最近也開始在自學中文,我很喜歡從學習新語言當中帶來的文化衝擊。

我希望我可以在這裡學好國語。康培士提供了一個很好的環境讓大家可以沉醉於學習英文的氛圍中一直練習。我很享受這裡的小班教學,因為這樣可以讓我能關注到每一位學生。

給學員的學習建議:

勇敢地說出來吧!學好語言最好的方法就是要身歷其境,犯錯然後提出問題!
