Hello everyone. My name is Dawn Foust. I am from Dallas, Texas. I am an experienced and qualified English teacher. I am TEFL and TOFEL certified and I have 15 years experience teaching both online and in classrooms. I have had the pleasure of teaching ESL to students age 3 to 65 with all levels and abilities.
I truly love having conversation classes and I believe that is a great way to build anyone's English skills. Learning English is a journey and I am happy to be on it with my students. In my class, my motto is: Never Be Afraid to Make a Mistake. I believe that making mistakes is how we learn. My classes are fun! I am energetic and friendly and I thoroughly enjoy my work as a teacher.
I began my career teaching online in 2005 for a tutoring company in America. I then moved to a beautiful little island called Jeju in South Korea and taught classroom English to children and young adults at a private school. After that, I moved to England and worked as an online English teacher for 4 years. I worked closely with the Korean Ministry of Education to develop online learning programs for students that lived in rural areas in Korea and did not have access to English lessons. In 2013, I moved to Seoul, Korea and became the Director of Academics for an immigration firm. During this time I was also an adjunct online ESL faculty for Franklin University. I live in America now and have most recently been teaching ESL online to adults that are located all over the world.
Some of the things that I have specialized in are:
*General Conversation (Free Talking, Idioms, Slang, and Phrasal Verbs)
*TOFEL and IELTS preparation
*Job Interview Preparation
*Resume and CV writing
*Pop Culture, Social Issues, and Current Events
*Writing (University Applications, Essays, and Research Papers)
I have a very flexible schedule and am able to offer lessons at a variety of times to suit your needs.
All students can book a 30 minute trial lesson, where we can fully asses your level and get to know each other.
I look forward to being part of your English journey!
