Aloha and again welcome to my portfolio. Here is a little more information about who I am. My name is Eugene Sukert and I am a recent graduate from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, majoring in Second Language Studies, and I just graduated December 2013. The course work for this degree has given me a great deal of insight and knowledge in the field of Second Language Study enabling me to teach across a wide spectrum of skills in the English Language. In addition, I acquired skills in lesson planning, activity creation and test analysis. During my years at the university, I worked at Hawaii English Language Program (HELP), which has provided me with great insight to the field of teaching. In addition, I have taken two years of French and one year of Arabic language studies. These educational and work experiences were helpful in learning how to apply second language theory and pedagogy to teach and manage a classroom, as well as to develop my own activities and lesson plans. I believe that my education and experience will qualify me for a variety of positions helping to enhance the institutions that employ me.
