BEC - English Tutors & Teachers
Hello! My name is Mr. Kat Rogan. I am a native English speaker from the United States and I have been a professional language trainer for over 14 years for all age groups and levels of learning. I started teaching English in China at Dalian Maritime University in 2006. Since that time I have traveled to many countries, and have met and talked to just about every nationality you can think of. As and traveler, educator, and avid learner, the biggest thing I can say I have discovered about myself during this time: I really love languages and cultures. For me, learning languages and about people and their heritage is the "spice of life." This is what truly drives me to be a better person, keep moving forward, and improve at all levels of my life - every day. It's interesting, during these travels and experiences of the past decade-and-a-half, I have learned how to say basic concepts and greetings in at least 10 languages, which is a lot of fun and a big talking point in my day to life. People often ask me what my favorite language is. And after English, of course, I would usually say, it would have to be. 2. Chinese 3. Spanish 4. Thai 5. Japanese 6. Italian 7. Russian And more. (don't forget my adopted brother from Portugal - what's up Duarte) There are many languages! And really love to talk about them! But, at the top of my list is Chinese. I spend a lot of time practicing Chinese. Being a 4000-year-old civilization, there are endless amounts of wisdom, knowledge and culture to be found in this language. So, for me, it's a lifetime journey/mission to understand more about this language, culture, and people. I also love Spanish. Born and raised in the United States, Spanish is my second language. I studied Spanish in high school and university, but I know I need to improve. Though I can understand quite a bit of what is being said in Spanish, my speaking does need some practice. Spanish is spoken quite quickly. So, I know how much I need to improve. I also know how important it is to keep practicing my speaking ability with Spanish, as with any language. Though I am not too bad at speaking languages, I do know the feeling of not being able to speak at the level I would like. So I keep trying to learn new methods and systems of learning. And I really like to learn more about people, and their cultures. This is why I love learning languages. And this is also why I really love my job as a language trainer, teacher, or coach. So I hope to make your acquaintance and have many lessons with you. Kat Rogan Qualifications & Experience My education encompasses a long career as a news reporter and journalist as a Mass Communication student from the University of Utah. I also have a degree in Business Management from Weber State University. My master's education is in Multi-Media Film, MFA. I specialize in all forms of professional communication in business, interviewing, writing, examinations, basic conversation, and kid's phonics training. And I am TEFL certified to teach children. Having been a language trainer and learner for 14 years, I have taught thousands of students from around the world. In my experience, I have developed dedicated lesson planning systems, specifically designed for the student depending on their needs. Interestingly, I have found many ESL students with difficulties reaching their true potential. I have also found traditional models of learning to be rather rigid and outdated for progressive thought in the high-paced technologically-driven communication world we live in today. These issues are very important when it comes to speaking at high levels or high-pressure situations. My system brings together the best learning programs into one comprehensive lesson planning system and is adjustable to each specific need and goal of the learner. Some of my classes have helped my students to pass entry exams, get great jobs, get into great universities, succeed at all levels of speaking, writing, and communication for professional and interpersonal use all while having fun. My classes are fun, and I really love teaching that's why I still do it after all these years.

Hello! my name is Jamie, i'm 29, I live in England and I'm a professional English teacher. I graduated from University with a bachelor of arts degree in English Language and Literature, giving me a firm grasp of the vocabulary and grammar skills which are necessary to have a varied knowledge of the English language. I then moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to obtain a TEFL certificate to teach English as a foreign language. Since passing this course I have worked at a number of advanced International language schools in Thailand, Vietnam and Colombia, teaching a range of age groups from kindergarten to adults. I have now accumulated five years of teaching experience, whilst in my spare time tutoring on an online teaching platform. I have tutored one on one, held classes with as little as 10 students to as many as 50 and taught kids as young as 4 to adults as old as 40. This has allowed me to adopt a range of teaching methods to tailor my lesson plans to a multitude of requirements. Using a presentation, practice and production system, I teach my students to take the initiative first from watching me, then practising what I have shown them and then producing it themselves unaided! Practically the system varies depending on the students level but can be applied in any lesson whether online or in the classroom. In my experience of teaching advanced pupils the system is highly effective when looking at sentence structure, speaking skills and grammar. However with beginners and young children the focus is phonics and basic language. I strive to incorporate technology frequently, using images (flashcards - drawings - posters), video and audio to set up each lesson in an inclusive and interactive way so students are engaged. I also present themes and topics 'weather', 'occupations', 'animals' to bring clarity to subject matters and to introduce more varied and challenging language in an appropriate easy to digest manner. Most of all no matter what your age group or skill set, my classes are supportive and most importantly fun!
