TESOL teacher with teaching 4 skills English abroad for over 5 years

Methodology

My teaching method is mostly communication with students. I try to understand what students need to improve on by mentoring them to be more proactive. Rather than memorizing words and sentences, I teach the students to speak their mind without any fears and I correct them as they go along.

Background

I was a network engineer for over 10 years before I got my diplomas in TESOL. I moved to Myanmar to teach English there for over 5 years before moving back to United States. I also have bachelor degrees in Biology and Mathematics.
