About Me

Hi there, my name is Philip Mallon, I am from Dublin, Ireland, but currently live in Luoyang, China, where I work as Business and Economics teacher at an International school. My first teaching job was relatively late in life, at the age of 28, in South Korea, where I went with the intention of staying for just 1 year. I enjoyed my experience so much, I decided to pursue a career in the profession and progressed onto teaching adults at a language school, where I was regularly assigned to teach Business English face to face at some of South Korea's top companies. My final 3 years in Korea were spent teaching at Kongju National University in Cheonan City.

I completed a CELTA certificate in teaching English to speakers of other Languages before leaving for South Korea and in order to teach at university level there I completed a 2 year online based research Masters degree in Adult Learning and Global Change through Linkoping University, Sweden. My thesis focused on the learning experiences of North Korean defectors adapting to a new life in South Korea.

I love the personal interaction element of teaching and really enjoy speaking to students from all around the world when teaching online. I believe the best way to learn a language is through regular communication with native speakers of the target language coupled with a concerted effort on grammar and vocabulary development. My lessons attempt to draw on the personal experiences and interests of learners through using a mix of news reports and topics of general interest which my students can relate to.

In my private life I love to stay fit through running and cycling. I have played football since I was a young child and deep down I think I still have hopes of playing for Ireland some day! I am an avid reader and love to play the guitar..
