Hobart English Teacher, Multiple University Graduate, Over 10 Years Experience, Online Options Available

Methodology

My belief is that to be a good teacher there are three essential ingredients:

1. Subject Knowledge. A teacher must know what he/she is talking about

2. Rapport with students. Where possible, Classes should be as entertaining as possible.

3. Dedication. A teacher must give 100% effort to his/her students.

I follow these ideologies when I have (a) student(s). I will give you all of my patience, knowledge, and energy in a fun learning environment.

Background

In 2002 I moved to Korea to teach English to primary/elementary school students. I continued to do so until 2004, when I started to teach middle school students. In 2005, I was teaching high school students and by the end of that year I was teaching both adult business students and university students. In 2007 I also graduated from the Korean language course at Dan Kook university.

In 2008 I started work for the Korean government, editing international legal agreements, and continued working with large organisations, such as: Samsung and Hyundai Engineering, and also the CEO's and Vice Presidents of large companies.

In addition to this teaching work, I also took on many acting roles around Seoul, being competent in Korean and fluent in English. These positions continued on until 2012.

Upon return to Australia, I have had many private students, where we have focussed on a range of topics; ESL, Business, General Speech, TOEFL etc.

I am keen to teach online, as I am currently only 2 chapters away from finishing my first book.
