Our instructors have been through rigorous training programs that have been specifically developed for our classes. A tremendous amount of time and effort is spent developing, organizing, and executing well-crafted lesson plans and teaching materials for each class. Our instructors are patient, hard-working, and dedicated to implementing the best instruction possible while being attentive to each student.
Felicia is from Northern NY but has lived in Boston since 2006. She speaks Italian, French, and Spanish.
"I love languages! I really enjoy studying and learning new languages and, most of all, enjoy teaching. Helping students discover their own language abilities and seeing them become stronger speakers is so much fun, and there is always a lot of laughter in the classroom. Working with the community is something I am passionate about, and I look forward to helping our English program continue to impact new communities throughout Boston!"
Charlotte is from Cleveland Ohio, and lived in France for 1.5 years. She speaks French, Arabic, and some Italian.
"I started as an intern in September of 2014 because I thought that the experience would be a meaningful way to combine my experience teaching ESOL and my passion for engaging with my community. Since I was new to Boston when I started my work here, it was an amazing opportunity to get to know my new city and the people who live in it. Now that I am the Director, I am excited to look ahead to what we can continue to do for those communities. We have started two new classes this cycle, and are implementing a Language Coach program to support our students further and empower them to be involved in the Boston community they now call home. I continue to enjoy every class I teach and working with our dedicated interns."
