TESOL accredited native English speaker keen to share a lifetime of knowledge

Methodology

Having taught in both a classroom environment and to individual students, I have been able to observe that students are far more attentive, thus better equipped to assimilate knowledge, when a lesson structure is tailored to them. I have been able to achieve remarkable results, therefore, by ensuring my lesson plans engage the students by incorporating topics that relate to them personally thus pique their interests and keep them interested.

Experience

Upon gaining my TESOL qualification I began teaching classes in Saigon, Vietnam, before moving up-country to become a freelance English tutor for smaller groups of children and young adults in Buon Ma Thuot. Prior to becoming and English teacher I was a freelance Journalist/Proofreader/Editor, with a Diploma in proofreading/editing.
