Feedback for this tutor
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
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
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!

***un너무 좋았어요. 아이가 처음으로 배우는 영어라서 많이 걱정했지만, 선생님께서 친절하게 설명해주시고 아이가 재미있게 대화할 수 있었습니다. 처음이라 부족하지만 앞으로도 지속적으로 잘 배우고 싶습니다Conversation for Kids *Detailed Feedback* 30 7,000Apr 28, 2019

***hiro「優しい先生」というのが私の最初の印象でした。 英語の発音・スピードが聞き取りやすく、質問もとてもしやすい雰囲気です。 日本で過ごした経験があるため、日本人の陥りやすいミスや日本人独特の発音なども推測してくれるでしょう。Reading for Kids *Detailed Feedback* 30 1,800Feb 17, 2019
