Hello!! Are you looking for a talented and friendly English teacher? My name is Seth, and I am CELTA trained and have over 8 years experience living and working in Latin America as a professional ESL teacher. I currently live in Colombia where I have worked at the university level for the last 4 years. I teach General English, and also have broad experience with TOEFL and IELTS Exam Tutoring, Resumé/CV and other Document Copyediting, Pronunciation Coaching, Conversation Practice and Interview Preparation. Earlier in my career, I worked in digital design and programming, so I am particularly versed in the language of IT.
Over the years, I have worked with students at all levels (A1-C2), of all different ages and from different backgrounds. I am currently studying to improve my Spanish (B2) and beginning to learn Portuguese (A1), so I understand the difficulties and frustrations of, not only learning a new language but also finding the time in a busy schedule to study. I am confident that you will benefit from my knowledge, experience, efficiency, and professionalism.
I have a deep love for languages and teaching, and will happily target our classes to your particular preferences and requirements. I enjoy the process of aiding students as they gain mastery over the English language and feel personal satisfaction when I see them gain confidence and skill in its use. I am proud of my track record of successfully helping students accomplish their English language learning goals. Let me help you accomplish yours.
Shall we begin?
