*NEW WIRED CONNECTION - NO MORE WIFI!* My name is Scott Parrant and I am from Perth, Western Australia. I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where I was living for one year, but I have since returned back home to Australia. In Mexico, I spent some time working in a language center teaching English to Spanish speaking students young & old. I have received some great feedback on my relaxed and understanding approach to teaching English. With my classes, you can start a program from your proficiency level (from A1 - C2) and then be tested at the end to move up to the next level. I also have a wide range of topics with conversation questions for speaking if you were just looking to get some speaking practice.
