Certificate in Teaching for TOEFL Preparation
*I am a certified and dedicated English teacher who has been teaching for almost 4 years. I am part of a private English tutorial center in Korea.
I started my teaching career in the Philippines where I taught English at 2 different private elementary schools for 3 years.
On May 2009, I moved to Korea as I was invited to become an English teacher in my brother-in-law's own private English tutorial center. Being an English teacher for 4 years, I have explored and applied different teaching techniques and methodologies which have helped to improve my teaching skills. It has no wonder I have a passion for teaching and I always look forward to becoming a more effective teacher.

IELTS Speaking Part 1: Introduction & Interview Preparation
The examiner will introduce himself or herself and confirm your identity. He or she will then ask you a number of general questions about yourself to try and make you feel relaxed. You may be asked about your home or studies. Then you will be asked one or two more sets of questions on familiar topics such as your interests, your country, your family or types of things you like in various categories such as food, clothes, holidays etc. The questions come from an examiner ‘frame’ (pre-determined questions) so the examiner will not necessarily follow-up with questions based on what you say. The more questions that are asked on a specific topic the more difficult they tend to be. However, you do not have to express a point of view or justify it in this part.
IELTS Speaking Part 2: Individual Long Turn Class
The examiner will ask you to speak for 1-2 minutes on a topic, which he or she will give you on a card. The card will give you an outline of what you need to talk about. You will be given one minute to prepare and you can make notes. The examiner will give you a piece of paper and a pen. He or she will invite you to start talking when your preparation time is up. The examiner will not say anything while you are speaking but will stop you, if you talk for more than two minutes.
Then you might be asked one or two short follow-up questions. The topics will be of a general nature. You will be asked to describe things such as a restaurant you enjoy eating in, a book you have read recently or a piece of equipment in your house you cannot live without. You will also be asked to relate what you are talking about, to yourself – e.g. ‘say why you choose to eat in this restaurant’ or ‘say what you enjoyed about the book’.
