Guess who has just joined the team of ambassadors at WizIQ?
The brainchild behind the Weekly English Workout (WEW) on WizIQ, Mr. Fluency MC, Jason R. Levine, has joined as the platform ambassador to WizIQ. The weekly English workouts (see Facebook page) are bringing joy to many families around the world as they practice their English language skills. Jason R. Levine loves teaching on WizIQ so much, he decided to become an ambassador and do all he can to share his teaching experiences with other English language teachers worldwide.
Who is Fluency MC?
Fluency MC is Jason R. Levine, an English Language Teacher (ELT), trainer, rapper, song writer, and much more. Jason likes to be called Jase. Jase has a perfect background for a language teacher and trainer. He has a degree from Hunter College, City University of New York, a Master of Arts in TESOL, K-12; Departmental honors from the University of Cambridge/RSA Examination Board , a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults; Grade A and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology: general and departmental honors from Vassar College. Jase has worked for the U.S. Department of State as an English Language Specialist and conducted teacher training programs through U.S. embassies worldwide. He assisted in delivering and maintaining quality English language programs overseas and promoting mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries. I met Jase in person in one of these ELT training events.
Jason Raps Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins
My students loved Jase before they even met him because he helped them for a test on Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins. Jase created a rap song that got the students relaxed and able to memorize and repeat the poem during the test. They all passed with flying colors, but most importantly, they learned to appreciate literature and love the poem. I would to publicly thank you, Jase for making so many people (the kids, their parents, the school, the teacher, and the principal) happy. Here’s the poem rapped by the one and only Fluency MC.
Ambassador to WizIQ
Fluency MC, Jason R. Levine is now the platform ambassador to WizIQ Education Online. Jason will recruit teachers, especially English language teachers, from North America and other parts of the world, to teach on WizIQ.
These are very exciting times for students and teachers to connect with Jason other than the fact that Jason is a very caring person, great teacher, awesome rap singer, great at connect with people, a wonderful family man, and much more. I see four reasons why Jase can make a huge difference in your life whether you are a teacher, student, parent, in business, or someone who wants to better his or her life or the organization.
First, English language learning is in high demand around the world as an international language that can land you a better job, provide many work-related opportunities, a chance to see the world and communicate in English, conduct business, and study in an English speaking country.
Second, many teachers in the USA are opting for early retirement from their schools, yet looking for independent work online. Thirdly, online learning in both the private and public sector, as with the current Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), is becoming very popular and the mainstream. Finally, WizIQ is the best platform when it comes to education online.
