I consider myself a responsible and diligent worker motivated by challenges. Regarding writing, I am interested to write in the range of travel, lifestyle, blogs and poetry. Basically, I am open to everything that adds to professional development. Having felt fatigue teaching in Macedonia, I opted for Spain to complete the Trinity CertTESOL Course. One of the input sessions gave us an insight into writing and teaching students writing skills. My relentless desire to improve encouraged me to enroll in the Trinity Dip TESOL. The course introduced me to well-known writers such as Jeremy Harmer and Scott Thornbury whose work entitled 'How to Teach Writing' and 'About Language' respectively were a helpful tool for me as a teacher to assist the students in Moscow with their writing. Such materials were also useful to write three projects on the Trinity Dip TESOL. Following my experience in teaching adults (in-company classes) and young learners in Prague, I am back in Macedonia.

The classes I taught took place in companies all over Prague. My adults students prefered speaking, therefore the classes were designed in a way that enabled the students to use English in real life situations. Error correction was very important for them, and that is why it was part of my classes as well.

I taught in-company classes with the focus on speaking. In the first lesson I did learner's analysis, and ever since then, the topics I gave the students were what they expressed their interest for. In addition to the adults, I also taught two juniors. For one of them, I chose short texts and grammar exercises, whereas for the other student, we used her school coursebook so that she would become better prepared for school.

The job position at International House in Moscow included teaching English to students of various ages ranging from 3 to 40+ years old. As an English teacher I was obliged to follow the school's pacing schedule, perform in alignment with high teaching standards, deliver lessons tailored for our students' needs.

Jul 2016 - Jul 2016 (1 month)

Following the successful completion of the 4-week Trinity CertTESOL Course in Barcelona in July 2016, I was offered to teach one group of adult students at A2 level for one month. As a result, my classes were not dependent on course books as they were prior to enrolling on the course but rather a freedom of choice based on students' preferences. My ability to monitor well was a stepping stone to tackle problems the students had and bring their attention to the errors they made.

Once the poems were covered, we studied the content of the novel 'Spies' by Michael Frayn in detail.

I taught four classes of first graders at the municipal state school. Each class consisted of 20 to 25 students. It was my responsibility to prepare materials as there were not any course books assigned by the Ministry of Education for first graders in state schools in Macedonia at the time. I provided handouts, songs and created Prezi presentations so as to facilitate the learning process, to create a positive learning environment and boost my creativity with every piece of material I made.

Initially, I went to the private student's home in my hometown Skopje between October 2013 and October 2014. We resumed our classes via Skype until I moved to Moscow. Due to the workload and my studies, we canceled the classes. However, the student showed interest in having classes with me after I returned from Moscow... I taught her via Skype using authentic materials to prepare the student for real-life tasks.

Additionally, I was responsible for their homework, taking the children to and from after-school activities and sharing my culture while learning about theirs. Becoming part of their family was the most appealing part of the whole stay in the US.
