English / ESL teacher with degree in Linguistics, 5 years experience, and Spanish speaker.

Methodology

I pride myself on being able to teach English in a fun and informative manner that is engaging and interactive in both classroom and online settings. I am able to teach all ages groups and manage a variety of class sizes. I find it both a welcome challenge and rewarding experience to quickly cater to the variety of learning styles and educational needs my students have as well as finding creative ways to focus in on their strengths and weaknesses using them both to engage students in the learning process. I believe that teaching English is not only an educational experience, but also a way to improve other skills such as critical thinking, cultural awareness, and intercultural social dynamics.

Background

My name is Taylor Selsback and I am an ESL teacher from the United States. I have both a Bachelor of Arts degree in general linguistics from the University of Iceland, a 120hr TEFL certificate as well as over 5 years experience in teaching ESL in classroom settings for English First in Russia, personal 1-on-1 lessons, and online settings with Web International in China. Additionally, I am a Spanish speaker and work well with students of many backgrounds.
