Samantha Weiland has a BA and MA in English Education and is a licensed teacher in California. She has been teaching for 15 years 5 years specializing in online English education. From 2010 to early 2014 I ran an online English school that I began with little business or marketing knowledge. I had just completed my MA in English Education during the economic downturn and could not return to teaching in the public schools of California as I had for over 10 years. I built my own website and had enough students to hire 5 teachers to work for me.
I have been studying English learning theory for over 20 years and I want to take that knowledge and translate it to e learning. I hope to build an international online English school that stands out as one of the best and the first online school for children that people turn to. I am excited about finding the funding to self publish the children's stories I have written over the past year, creating videos with a teacher reading the story to correspond with the book a child holds in his or her hands.
I began an online English school in 2010 that eventually had 6 teachers. I was about to expand this school prior to health problems. I built the websites, learned basic internet marketing, and was able to create and run an LLC based in California with three others.
