 My experiences for being an online teacher is very helpful for my life and career. I’ve handled different students such as kids, adults and professionals. I teach Basic, Conversational and Business English. I also teach Introduction lessons for IELTS. Most of my students leave good feedback and comments, because they find me very patient when it comes to teaching them.

And I am very passionate about teaching because I consider it as an accomplishment by seeing them learn and improve their skills such as their Spoken English.


Experience: 4 years

About me

The art of conversation, once considered the sign of a civilized individual, seems less common today.
Yet I treasure the moments of sharing experiences, collecting news, and exchanging ideas. I make a
point of knowing my neighbors, allowing casual greetings to become long conversations, and making
time to explore in depth the feelings and perceptions of friends and relatives. These natural
conversations provide information, encouragement, laughs, and pleasure.
Many people say they are too busy to have long talks. Other people prefer to watch television, play
computer games, or listen to the radio rather than talk to relatives and friends. Sometimes people feel
too shy to speak to the people next to them. Many Americans have forgotten how to hold good, deep
conversations, or even a friendly chat on the phone. I suspect this lack of real communication lessens
their daily joy.
Of course, people learning English as a second, third, or fourth language face even more barriers to a
satisfying conversation in English. First, English remains a confusing, difficult, and strange language.
It’s easy to feel uncomfortable when speaking in this new tongue. What questions do I ask? How can I
keep a conversation going? What vocabulary words are needed? How do I show agreement, or
disagreement, in a lively, yet polite way? How can I share my experiences in a clear manner? How
can I have better, more engaging conversations in English?
Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics addresses these issues
for both native and non-native speakers. The focus is on learning by doing, and making good mistakes.
(Good mistakes, by the way, are natural mistakes that help us learn so we can make different and
better “good mistakes” next time.)
Each of the 45 chapters that follow includes 30 or more questions, 10 or more targeted vocabulary
words, a few proverbs, and 10 or more quotations. Although designed for advanced students,
intermediate ESLstudents will find plenty of material to use and can benefit from exposure to the new
words, phrases, and questions.
Each chapter focuses on a promising conversation topic. The questions allow the reader to practice
exchanging experiences and ideas in a natural style. You can add questions, skip questions, and move
on to related topics. Each chapter begins with easier questions and moves on to questions that are
more abstract. Both native and non-native speakers will find the questions allow one to share
experiences, exchange insights, and reflect on life.
