ESL/TESOL - Kalamazoo, MI - TESOL Certified - Giving lessons to students who want to learn English

Methodology

I am currently in Kalamazoo, MI!

Background

Tutored foreign students up at Central's English Language Institute for two years! I also have tutored on-and-off in both Japanese and English. Interned and observed students in a few Public High Schools in the States and have taught several lessons in English literature and composition.
