Bgcheck Background Checked


What makes ESL lessons with me unique are my ability to interact with students of all age ranges from kindergarten to adult. I have four years of experience teaching under my belt with a wide range of students from all walks of life whether it's kindergartners, primary school students, college students, or even adult professionals. I have taught clients all around the world not just my three-and-a-half years classroom experience in Southeast Asia but also online to people in places like China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Pakistan, or wherever.

I am all too familiar with TPR regarding smaller students and grammar and pronunciation corrections with older students. I have a witty sense of humor and lots of energy. I always try to make the class as fun and entertaining as possible. I have a long list of games to play with the students as well. I have learned over time that half the job entails one's ability to entertain. The more entertained the students are, the more engaged they ...

I am a fellow colleague of Dustin's. Dustin is an interesting person who is able to hold interesting conversations about all kind of topics. He is also a reliable individual who is dedicated to his job. He is also a great team player and has covered a class for me when in the unfortunate event, I had injured my foot from a bike accident and was not able to make class. Dustin kindly agreed to make the journey and take the lesson at the last minute.

Teaching is fun with me. I make use of instances that students can relate to while teaching. Also, studies have shown that information sticks better when you can relate to the knowledge passed down.
