Book a trial lesson, then book a regular lesson for half price!
Hi! My name is Mike. I'm a TESOL certified teacher from the state of Colorado in the United States. I've been teaching English for 2 years in the classroom and online.
My goal as an English teacher is to help my students achieve their goals. In the short term this means giving them the basic tools they will need to communicate, including vocabulary, knowledge of grammar, and the opportunity to practice in a comfortable environment. In the long term it means helping students gain confidence in their English and giving them the tools they need to continue learning.
I like to combine grammar lessons with listening and speaking. This allows students to immediately practice what they are learning so they acquire the language rather than just memorize it.
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages for completing more than 150 hours of instruction in Foundational Principles, Theories of Second Language Acquisition, Lesson Design and Assessment, Teaching Reading, Writing, and Grammar, Teaching Listening, Speaking, and Pronunciation, and Technology-Enriched Teaching, including 10 hours of observation and 10 hours of teaching.
