Hi, my name is Michael and I am from Toronto, Canada! I'm a professional ESL teacher with a Master of Arts and Contemporary Sciences degree from Ryerson University. I am TEFL/TESOL certified and have been teaching English as a second language in Asia for over 5 years, living in various cities across mainland China, Taiwan and Thailand. I'm a successful online entrepreneur, having owned several e-commerce businesses. My hobbies include business development and management, online marketing, medical sciences, photography and videography, hiking, camping, fishing and coffee. I also love to travel, and so far I have been to over 15 different countries around the world. My teaching method is the Communicative Approach, where my students not only learn the English language but also HOW to use it. I believe my students learn English best when they are actively using it, and so I continuously ask my students to confront their own ideas and ask questions, developing meaningful communication skills. If you are looking to improve your English before your next vacation, business trip or even for an interview, I would be happy to help! I enjoy teaching and learning about different cultures and lifestyles, art, music, world religions and medical sciences.
I look forward to being your English teacher!o
