Hello future students!
My name is Ted Salonek. I have teaching all ages, proficiencies, class sizes, and walks of life! I first started teaching at my university as an assistant ESL instructor. The work was so rewarding that I decided to persue a career in English teaching. I have also worked as an academic writing instructor for both American college students and Chinese high school students.
I have also spent three years in China as an ESL teacher. In China I taught all ages. I've also taught classes to Chinese English teachers on classroom management theory and curriculum development.
My approach to teaching focuses on engagement and cultivation of interest. Its very important to me that my students know what they want to learn, and that each lesson is personalized to fit thier particular learning style.
Whether you need assistance in conversational skills, vocabulary, pronunciation, or academic writing, I make it my promise as a professional to assist you on your path to fluency.
I hope to work with you soon!
