    Dear Director,


    I am a certified TESL teacher through Oxford Seminars in Canada.  I was previously employed at a university in Oaxaca Mexico for almost 3 years.  I started as an ESL teacher and was promoted to Head of the Language Center/Jefe del Centro de Idiomas after my first year.  I returned to Canada in 2016 to help care for my aging mother.  It is time for me to return to where my heart lies, to teaching ESL both online or in a physical capacity.


    During my time at the university in Oaxaca, I taught 3 different levels of students, beginners, intermediates and advanced students.  In my past, I have hosted international students from such countries as Japan, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and many others in my home for over 25 years.  During this time, I helped them with their English speaking and communicative skills, as well as with their spelling and grammar.  Knowing my students, understanding their needs and challenges, being able to adjust to each persons' individual learning level has allowed me to become highly diverse in my life and teaching abilities.


    Teaching ESL became the most satisfying position I have ever had in my life.  My skills back ground of being in Human Resources, financials, administrative and Customer Service Representative positions had me dealing with a multitude of different personalities on a daily basis.  Nothing could have prepared me better to be in a teaching position, but nothing also prepared me for how much teaching became the best position, most soul satisfying job position I ever had.


    My enclosed resume provides an overview of my education, work history, and some of my interests but it cannot adequately express my passion and sincere enthusiasm for teaching and educating international students.  I hope to be able to convey some of this to you in an interview at your convenience.  I would like to thank you in advance for reviewing my resume and cover letter and considering how I could make the best contribution to your organization and for me to become part of your team.
