After seven years of teaching English in twelve different countries, Sloane Pellegrini has gained the type of resume that most ESL teachers dream of. In other words, every job she lists is in a different country and has escalated in position each time, also while displaying language and cultural experience that proves valuable across four different continents.
It all started shortly after Sloane Pellegrini graduated college and was the proud holder of a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. She was interested in becoming a professor so she could inspire young minds to read into the lines of the English language and tune their skills to develop the lyrical and poetic skills needed to deliver compelling messages.
It seemed unfortunate for her, at the time, that when she graduated there were so little available jobs for someone in her field, let alone in the already-struggling state economy of California. These circumstances eventually pushed Sloane Pellegrini to try applying for teaching jobs abroad. And it wasn’t long before she landed a one-year gig teaching at a private English school in South Korea.
After completing her first contract, Sloane Pellegrini continued her exploration of the Asian continent by teaching in Thailand, Japan and China. She had then made her way back to the United States, but not before making some stops in South and Central America. She worked in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico while taking in the rich cultures, beautiful landscapes and delicious food of these areas.
Once making it back to California, Sloane Pellegrini realized she could no longer stay in her home town, and moved to New York City to work at a small ESL school. She had fallen in love with NYC and decided she would one day move there permanently. She had made many friends of different cultural backgrounds, however who convinced her to continue her work in their native lands. This encouragement got her overseas again, with extended contracts in Spain, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
A year ago, Sloane Pellegrini moved back to NYC and opened up her own private tutoring practice, where she visits homes and offices to teach private English instruction to individuals or large groups. Along with the extensive experience she brings to helping her students, she also has lots of stories to tell that always keep them interested.
