TEFL Certified Teacher with 6 Years Experience Teaching and Tutoring Taiwanese and Central American ESL Learners

Methodology

There are two different styles of lesson that I usually do with my private tutoring students.

- The first style is to use a book or other learning materials so that the student can learn in a structured way that includes homework that they will need to complete between lessons. This style is more suitable for students that are in elementary or junior high school. This structured style allows the teacher to prepare before the class and gives the student a good idea of expectations and goals as well as allowing parents the ability to become involved in their child's learning.

- The second style I use to teach is a bit less structured and allows the students to practice their English by discussing, reading about, or writing about a topic that interests them. This method of teaching is more suitable for senior high school students and adults. This is a better method for older students who already have the basics of English grammar and vocabulary but need more practical experience using their knowledge.

I am a very flexible teacher, and students/parents can tell me what they want, and I will tailor the lesson to meet their needs and desires.

Background

I studied Spanish and Sociology in university and since graduating I have worked as an ESL teacher in Costa Rica and Taiwan. My background in Spanish means that I understand the process of learning a second language very well. I completed a certified TEFL course in Costa Rica and now have 6 years combined experience as an ESL teacher. Most of my experience is teaching adult learners at private language institutes, but I have also taught English to children of all ages in bilingual pre-school, private cram schools, and public and private elementary, junior high, and senior high schools. I have extensive experience teaching private tutoring lessons with students of all ages, and I am dedicated to making my sure my students learn and improve their English. I can speak Spanish as a second language and I have basic Mandarin Chinese ability.
