Melissa P.'s Full Profile
I am a graduate student at the University of Texas at San Antonio. My degree is in Teaching English as a Second language. I hope to finish school in about a year and work with ESL and bilingual children. As a requirement for my course in Advanced Second Language Literacy, I had the opportunity to tutor international graduate students in reading and writing. I worked with individuals from various countries such as, India, Turkey, and China. It was a positive experience that I will always cherish. I hope to continue tutoring and mentoring even after I earn my master’s degree. As a bilingual child, I struggled with various subjects and eventually improved. I can relate to student’s needs especially those who are bilingual and ESL. I hope that through understanding, patience, and guidance I can motivate any individual to never lose their zest for learning. And, through these actions, I hope to help motivate them enough to increase their attention span at school, organize themselves, and improve their overall study skills. Fun Facts: I am a "Star Trek: The Next Generation" fanatic. I also enjoy yoga, reading, and my current field of study which is Teaching English as a Second Language. I look forward to finishing grad school and pursuing a teaching career.
