Personal Attributes:
I have a vast understanding of both singular and complex lexical forms and their communicative functions which enables me to offer logic and reason to even the most complex forms of English communication.
I am a highly reactive teacher and believe it imperative to respond to my students' cognitive capacities and not to force them to comply with any pedagogic principles that have been deemed inappropriate by the responses of my students.
I have been expertly trained to continuously develop and refine my own language teaching strategies.
My students' confidence is my strength.

Eli Mahon Nicklin was a student at AIS St Helens 2004 – 2008. I assume he has shown you his academic transcript. He was awarded the Cert TESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in September 2007 and the BA (TESOL) in December 2008. In each of the courses he had to complete for this, he was awarded mostly A grades and this is a record of which he should be justifiably proud. As a result of this fine academic record, he was awarded a scholarship by AIS St Helens.
On a more personal note, I taught him for 1.131 Linguistics, 1.130 Language, Thought and Culture, and 1.234 Approaches to Language Teaching and Learning. His attendance and participation in class were exemplary. In particular, I remember that, as well as a sound grasp of the practical aspects of courses, he also showed a keen interest in the deeper philosophical background to topics (an interest I would like to see more of in our students). On an interpersonal basis, I found him a very easy student to teach and a delight to have in the class.
In view of all the above, I am happy to recommend him for any suitable post he may apply for.
I hope this is reference enough. Please feel free to contact me if there are further queries.
