LindaN Tutor Profile

Hello there! Welcome to Linda's Cafetalk Profile! 
I'm an American living in North Carolina, USA. I'm an English teacher that has been working with English learners since 2012. 

My Education & Training
  • Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language 
  • TEFL Certificate 
  • Teaching License for grades kindergarten-12th grade
  • Bachelor in English with a focus in professional writing
Teaching in Korea, Japan, and China 

The first year I ever taught English abroad was in South Korea. While in Korea, I taught 30-35 classes each week for elementary and middle school students.

After that, I taught English to students of all ages in Japan for 2 years. During this time, I taught 50-60 classes a week for preschoolers, kindergarteners, elementary, junior high, senior high, and adult students. 

After that,  I taught English Shanghai, China for 1 year. At this job, I taught students one-on-one. Mostly, I worked with children and teens ages 5 to 15. I also taught conversational and business English to adults. 

Teaching in the USA

Currently, I teach English as a Second Language at a middle school in the United States. I work with students one-on-one and in small groups.

In the past, I also taught English as a second language at an elementary school. I worked with kindergarten through fifth grade students. 

As an ESL teacher, I help students improve their reading, writing, grammar, speaking, and listening skills in English. I work with many students who are new to the United States. I also work with students who speak English fairly well, but still need help with reading and writing.

My Teaching Philosphy 

Learning a new language is a long process! It takes patience, time, and dedicated practice to become a great English speaker. For these reasons, learning needs to be enjoyable and engaging for all students. 

Above all, I think learning English should be an enjoyable and deeply rewarding experience for all students. I truly enjoy teaching students of all ages from young children to adults. 

What My Classes are Like 
  • Fun and engaging! 
  • Laid-back and relaxing
  • Thoughtful feedback and suggestions for self-study
  • Designed with your interests and level in mind
More About Me

My hobbies are reading novels, watching movies, hiking, yoga, cooking, and baking. I also like to travel, try new foods, learn about other cultures, and spend time with family and friends. 

I'm studying Chinese Mandarin and Spanish at the moment. I still remember a little Korean and Japanese from when I lived in these countries.

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! See you in class!
