Hi Guys! My name is Teacher Mark. I am a 33 year old American but I am currently living and working at a language institute in the Philippines teaching Korean, Japanese, Russian, Taiwanese, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Swiss, and Spanish students. I am the Native Team Leader at my academy and I have been teaching here for almost 6 years. I'm looking to expand my online student base and am happy to have found buddy school. Before a student registers for any of my classes I would like to give a free ten minute introductory lesson so I can tell you about myself and learn more about you so that you feel confident that I am the right teacher for you. I teach a variety of different things but my main goals with my students are building fluency by introducing students to a more natural way of speaking and building confidence in students so that they feel good about themselves and their English as they take their learned skills into the real world. The biggest problem I see with English as a Second Language students is that in many cases the vocabulary or sentences they use, even though grammatically correct, don't always sound very natural. Almost robotic at times. I also find that students at any level don't always feel confident about their English. Working with me will help build that confidence. I'm a very passionate teacher and a "down to earth" guy. I have a lot of experience with a lot of different types of students and I love to meet new people. Thank you for taking the time and consideration to read this and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Take care and study hard!
