Greetings and good day! My name is Travis and I am a 36 year old English teacher from the United States. I have over 10 years of experience working as an English teacher in Asia. Most of that time was spent teaching in South Korea, but I have also lived and worked in Cambodia and East Timor as well. I have taught and am comfortable teaching all levels of English speakers. Over the course of my career, I have worked in kindergartens, public schools, universities, teaching IELTS and TOEFL test prep, and for major corporations like Samsung, teaching executive level students how to improve their English skills.

For the last 2 years, I have been working as an online English teacher and I have worked for multiple US and Chinese based online teaching companies. I have experience teaching both adults and children online. My approach to teaching English online involves the use of TPR along with multiple props, puppets, ManyCam software, and an online whiteboard. I try to make my classes as interactive and fun as possible. I bring a positive attitude to each class and focus my attention on the individual learning needs of the student I am teaching.

If you are curious as to what I can do for you, I encourage you to book a lesson today. Learning English isn't difficult, you just need the right strategy and the right person to guide you along your journey. Book a lesson with me and see what I can do for you to help you achieve fluency as an English speaker.
