ESL Language Instructor in Tampa Bay area with over 5 years teaching children and adults around the world

Methodology

I believe that a successful teacher must exhibit patience, adaptability, excellent interpersonal
communication skills, an understanding of their students' cultural backgrounds, and an understanding of
students' individual needs and learning styles. From my teaching experiences, I have seen that these
qualities are critical in being an effective teacher and for establishing a good relationship with your students to foster mutual respect. As a language learner myself, I have experienced the stresses and the rewards of studying a foreign language. This has allowed me to empathize with my students and the struggles they experience while learning a new language. I like to use a variety of written and audiovisual tools to expose my students to a variety of learning styles that suit them personally.

Background

My name is Eric. I have been teaching ESL for over 5 years to a very diverse groups of students including young adults, Master's and Ph.D. candidates, and adult learners in the United States; kindergarten and college students in China; and primary and middle school students in Honduras. I have a Master's Degree in International Affairs with a focus on Community Education from Pennsylvania State University, and a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). As a language learner myself, I have experienced the stresses and the rewards of studying a foreign language. This has allowed me to empathize with my students and the struggles they experience while learning a new language.
