Ms. Dawson has solid experience both in the classroom and in private tutoring. At Star English Centre in Hong Kong she taught students ranging from pre-kindergarten to secondary level, and enhanced the curriculum with her own lesson plans and learning activities. She mentored and trained new teachers and colleagues. In addition, she assisted in the integration of technology in the classroom.
At the TEFL Institute in Chicago, IL, she taught English to small groups of students with different levels of English language ability. She guided pronunciation exercises and clarified difficult grammar points. As a private tutor she designed lesson plans for students’ specific language goals, and provided real-life situations in which students could use their new language. She believes that her teaching combines firm curricula with thoughtful, creative lesson planning.
