ESL and History teacher with years of experience both at home and abroad

Methodology

I have a rigorous in person TEFL from the American Language Institute and teach a communicative approach. Fluency and ease are found by carefully constructed conversations where students use what they know and slowly encounter new vocabulary and grammar structures in addition to short grammar lessons.

Background

I've been giving lessons in ESL for over 8 years in both English speaking countries and non-English speaking countries.
I have also been a credentialed Social Studies teacher for several years.
Many of my students have gone on to pass their Cambridge exams, IELTS, and even go to Universities in English speaking countries. I also have experience with teaching business English
