Experienced English as a Second Language Teachers gives lively and innovative lessons!

Methodology

As a teacher, I have always approached my students in an honest and open manner. From the very first lesson, I make sure they are clear about what my teaching style is: interactive, enthusiastic,well-structured and very culturally understanding. I strongly believe that what separates a good teacher from a superior teacher is the ability to connect with their students in such a way that trust is established. In my opinion, this is incredibly important. A teacher who is able to successfully build a positive rapport with their students, will undoubtedly have students who are more receptive to learning. In terms of how I teach my lessons, it really depends on the area (grammar, reading, writing, communication skills, presentation skills, listening comprehension etc.) Having experienced all of these areas, I now have the skills to fine-tune my lessons so that they are always catered to the specific student's level, include valuable skills, and involve the student in an engaging way.

Background

I am a College Professor at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and I teach essay writing skills to international students. I have a lot of experience in many areas of English as a Second Language, starting with my experience as a teacher in an International College in Toronto, Ontario instructing grammar, reading and writing, listening comprehension and communication skills. I wanted to diversify my experience by traveling overseas where I taught in South, Korea which included Kindergartners in a Hagwon to cooperate business employees in the Hyundai and Kia Headquarters.
