      Education

      I have recently become certified by the United TESOL International College of Teacher Training in Ottawa, Canada. As well, I have completed one and a half years of my four year bachelor program in communications at the University of Ottawa. I have been in an English language school system for twelve years and graduated from my secondary school in Toronto, Ontario with honours and an English award. I also have a French Immersion certificate from my secondary school.

      Teaching and Professional Experience

      Camp Counsellor, Bayview Glen Day Camp

      At this popular children’s camp in Toronto, I was able to acquire many useful skills in the supervision of children, ensuring their well-being and teaching them new skills. My duties included supervising and caring for children aged 2-5, filling out their progress reports, and relaying information to their parents regarding their daily activities and general progress. This position allowed me to develop a number of effective games and activities for children and gave me the opportunity to be creative and use my imagination to establish an enjoyable environment for the children in my group. I have acquired an official “Staff in Training” certificate after the training session provided by the camp.

      Front Office Assistant, Chilcotin Holidays Guest Ranch

      During my recent employment at Chilcotin Holidays Guest Ranch, I had the unique opportunity to work in the rural area of the Chilcotin Mountains in the province of British Columbia, Canada. The company is a vacation spot for all kinds of travelers and specializes in horseback riding to the surrounding mountainous areas. While working there, I had the chance to learn a lot and to improve on my already strong people skills. In the office, I communicated with individuals over the phone and via e-mail to inform them of our services, describe our trip options and to book various trips. The skills I learned here will help me explain and convey information more effectively when teaching. As well as working in the office, I was also often in charge of guest relational duties such as welcoming guests to their rooms, helping prepare their meals and informing them of their itineraries. I soon developed many effective communication strategies to relay the necessary information effectively and I became more confident interacting with any age group, which will definitely help me in teaching to students of all ages and nationalities.

      Sales Associate, Body Blue Denim Lab

      At this small clothing and denim store in downtown Toronto, I was able to learn many skills involving public relations, organization, and general sales. My tasks included receiving merchandise, interacting with customers in person and over the phone and helping customers with their fashion needs. This job increased my ability to realize the individual needs of every customer and to cater to their special needs and desires. This has a large advantage in teaching because I will be able to work with individual students’ limitations and goals and adapt lessons accordingly. In addition, as I became one of the most successful sales associates in the store, I was in charge of training new employees and helping them adjust to their new working conditions; this has prepared me to teach students using appropriate terms and in any environment.

      Customer Service Representative, Green Rebel Restaurant

      As an employee of Green Rebel, I was in charge of several duties including food preparation and service, operating the cash register and interacting with customers. This employment opportunity taught me to work in a fast-paced environment as I often worked during peak business hours when the restaurant was most busy. I also improved on my ability to work on several things at once, I became skilled at halping advertise for the restaurant and I also learned to interact with customers professionally and efficiently.

      Other Skills

      I have very thorough knowledge of the internet and all Microsoft office applications.
      I have received numerous awards in dance and martial arts competitions.
      I have good knowledge of French and Russian languages.

      Hobbies and Interests

      Some of my hobbies include reading, cooking and experimenting with foods, staying active, practicing martial arts, climbing and dancing. I especially love travel and have gone on several backpacking trips around the world. I love meeting new people, taking care of children, and have a special love for horses and other animals.
