My name is Arpine Sargsyan and I recently moved to Massachusetts from Yerevan. A little bit about myself. I graduated from Yerevan State Linguistic University after V. Bryusov and immediately after graduation started teaching English and Greek in Yerevan State Armenian-Greek College of Tourism, Service and Food Industry. While working at college, I entered the Public Administration Academy of the Republic of Armenia where I studied social-political sciences and gained Master’s degree in Public Administration. However, I got more focused on my teaching skills as I enjoyed interacting with students of various skill levels and backgrounds and felt very content facilitating them not only to learn foreign languages but also to grow and develop. Today, I have an experience of almost 13 years which taught me how to manage larger class sizes, how to encourage learning process using various interactive methods as well as technology, and, what matters the most, how to consider each learner’s age, psychology and personal needs while teaching them a language. I really feel great joy and enthusiasm that I’m going to teach Armenian kids our mother language, thus making a difference in the lives of kids in the Boston Armenian community.
