Q. Your lessons are very popular among parents and kids. What do you think makes your classes work well for children?



Hello there! Welcome to Linda's Cafetalk Profile! 
I'm an American living in North Carolina, USA. I'm an English teacher with over 5 years of experience teaching children, teens and adults.

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. 

Lastly, 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

I have experience working with students in US public schools in small groups and one-on-one. My speciality is working with students who are learning English as a second language. 

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. 

My Teaching Philosphy 

Learning a new language is a long process! It takes patience, time, and dedicated practice to become a great English speaker. That said, learning can be fun! Songs, games, and interesting conversations are good ways to learn. 

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 included in most
  • 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.

I have five people in my family: my mother, father, younger sister, and younger brother. My mother and brother are also teachers like me. I also love animals! We have two pet dogs and four cats. 

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