Experienced 10 Years IELTS English Teacher
As a college student, I was not quite sure what it was I wanted to do. I got requests from friends and family to tutor some home school children. I did this in my spare time. I was amazed to discover how much I enjoyed it and realized I really had a talent for teaching. From there, I knew I had to travel abroad and see the rest of the world. I wanted to teach others who wanted to learn English. I first started teaching English to adult learners. I worked with people who already had jobs and needed to improve their business English skills. I also saw many students needed better teachers to prepare them for tests like the IELTS and the TOEFL. I have trained adult learners in the classroom and thoroughly enjoyed it. Based on my experience and success, I got many requests to teach children. It was something new and challenging. I have been teaching children from many different countries. This cultural diversity has taught me so much!! I like to think I am learning as much as my students! My classes are only 25 minutes. This can give everyone the opportunity to practice English every day. Time is always a hurdle but everyone has at least 25 minutes to spare to practice their language skills. The best of luck to all!
