Certified TESOL instructor with American accent providing comfortable, engaging and effective individual & group English lessons in the Gold Coast

Methodology

I am an TESOL certified ESL tutor from America with over 12 years experience in the field (Mainly in South Korea - 안녕하세요!). I have previously worked in academies, public schools, universities, with corporate clients and with small group/individuals. I have most recently been working at Brown's English Language School in Southport.

No matter the situation, I enjoy helping my students gain confidence in their English speaking ability by working to create an environment that allows them to practice and develop their skills comfortably. My classes are adaptive and responsive to your needs and can be tailored to help you reach your educational goals. I have worked with most every age (3-92) and ability level (beginner to advanced) and look forward to working with you to create a productive lesson plan and study environment that suits your learning style.

Previous students have requested classes based on a blend of the following:
* Conversational English
* Topical English
* EAP - Business English
* Academic English
* Presentation English
* Travel English
* Grammar/Vocabulary focus

Background

I have been teaching in the ESL industry in South Korea for the past 12 years. I have worked in both the public and private sectors, and taught students from elementary to adult. Most recently, I have been teaching Freshman English in South Korean Universities and Business English to Corporations.
