Core Skills ESL Faculty

NOVA’s ACLI Core Skills ESL Program has more than 75 highly-qualified instructors across our campuses. Core Skills instructors may also teach in the ACLI Intensive English Program (IEP) and the College ESL program.

Most of our teachers have master’s degrees in TESOL, applied linguistics, education with ESL concentration or a related field. Other teachers have advanced degrees with extensive and diverse teaching experiences within the U.S. and abroad.

In addition to teaching, many instructors help with placement testing, developing curriculum and instructional materials.

Many Core Skills ESL faculty have worked in the ACLI for many years. In addition to ESL backgrounds, they have a variety of skills to offer, from up-to-date instructional technology to knowledge of the American business world.
