City and Guilds U.K. Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
Experience: 10 years
I am a native English speaker from the U.K. I now live in Thailand, where I have been teaching English at International schools for the past 10 years. I am new to Buddyschool. Apart fom International schools,I have also worked at English language Institutes where I have taught Exam preparation for : TOEFL , IELTS and SAT. I have taught every level from beginners to intermediate to advanced English.My primary goal is to improve the students English skills and give them more confidence in their English ability. I try to incorporate the four basic skills in my lessons : Speaking, reading, writing and listening. However,lessons can be tailored to suit specific needs. I have been a language learner myself before,I studied German when I was in University as an extra European language.I can also speak Thai,which I taught myself from books and audio,without a tutor. So this has given me a better understanding which I otherwise would not have had.
I have also lived and worked in South Africa and the United States and have travelled extensively. I can offer a free 30 minute trial lesson.
