Hi! I just want to briefly share my qualifications as an ESL Teacher. I have been teaching in some capacity for over 25 years. I started teaching ESL in the year 2000. Along with having a Masters Degree in ESL, I also have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I specialize in teaching Business English in which we discuss real world business articles per student choice or those I have selected and academic English, which includes helping students with passing the speaking and writing portions of English proficiency tests. I am a professional writer, speaker, teacher, and consultant. I do hold a teacher certification in ESL from the USA for public school teaching as well. I chose to teach ESL online because it gives me the flexibility I need to pursue my other passions mentioned above and because I love teaching English to second language learners. I have taught students from many different countries and ethnicities and ages. I have even lived abroad and taught in Asia. In addition, I have taught elementary students (all subjects), middle and high school reading, as well as university education and ESL courses. My teaching style can be classified, I believe, in two ways. I can be a very organized and methodical teacher, as well as a more free-flowing, flexible type teacher. Whichever method I choose for my students, it will be tailored to their personality and learning ability. One thing that is a must have for my teaching is for it to be motivational as I teach with enthusiasm and constant encouragement. I teach my classes with energy and joy. So, if you want t of be encouraged and don't mind having a few laughs while learning then I could be the right teacher for you. I am very respectful and patient as well.
