Teacher and polyglot with ESL experience in Europe and Japan giving professional and courteous lessons

Methodology

I like to focus my lessons on the student speaking as much as possible. I provide the necessary phrases, vocabulary, or topics, and the student will be able to speak for the majority of the lesson time. This allows students to maximize their practice time.

Background

I have a master's degree and bachelor's degree in business. I have taught all ages and levels of ESL students including business professionals in Spain and Japan. I have taken the TOEIC exam (and scored a 990) to provide more useful lessons to students studying for that exam.
