Hello. My name is Aeynzmaar Garrick (Ainsmar Brown) and I am interested in working as an English language instructor. My native language is English and with my professional experience as an Engineer, I have a unique perspective on the use of English on a daily basis. I believe my background in writing technical reports would bring a valuable point of view on using English to explain complex scientific and mathematical terms to large audiences. I have also had continuous employment since graduating from my undergraduate program in 2007. I currently work as a research engineer with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
However, my background is not only limited to my Engineering experience. I have also spent time in the past a language exchange partner, teaching English in exchange for Mandarin Chinese. More recently, I have been working part -time as an English language consultant for the TutorABC program based out of Taiwain. This program provides rigorous 45 minute tutoring sessions with professionally written lesson plans. This experience has given me practical live experience and direct feedback from the clients that I have been working with to improve their English. My current rating is a 9.0 out of 10, with the average consultant rating being an 8.5. Lastly, I also have a TESOL certificate from the American TESOL Institute. The certificate called Business TESOL, with 140 hours of coursework focused on business English. I am also in the process of completing another certificate with a concentration in teaching children English.
I am a hard worker who likes to be creative and bring new things to the experience for those learning English. I also believe that patience is one of the most important qualities when working as a language instructor. I pride myself on being patience with students and putting extra effort in understanding their perspective on the language learning experience.
