Jonae Muhammad: Curriculum Vitae

About The Instructor

Jonae is deeply committed to partnering with students to realize their academic goals. She is a Texas (US) native and has taught ESL for 7 years to adult immigrants newly arrived in the US through a local language institution, a large community college in Houston, and private lessons. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in Rhetoric and Composition (writing). Additionally, she has teaching certificates in ESL and TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages). Her TOEFL classes are calibrated to meet the demands of the test with material from ETS, the test makers. Jonae will work to meet students where they are and to fill in the gaps to build the undergirding skills they need to perform well on the exam. She also seeks to accustom them to the ebbs and rhythms of the exam, so they are equipped to master it. Her students have a partner walking with them to success.
