This is how 4 referees rated Ronald:
25 years experience. I love teaching, both as a classroom teacher and online, I've lived in many countries and value the diversity of cultures and experiences of my students. I am patient and skilled, having specialized in the various ways people learn and the needs of a variety of students with a range of abilities.
I offer online classes 7pm to midnight Sunday to Thursday (EST) and Friday 7 to 10pm (EST).
I'm married with children, enjoying life on our island property. At this time I offer online teaching, which is just like a private one to one class, but from the convenience of your home or preferred location, using live camera and voice, with an interactive shared screen.
I have been tutoring and classroom teaching ESL for the past 10 years, as well as serving as an education director and language school consultant. Prior to that I was an academic classroom teacher for 15 years in Ontario, and at Brent International School Manila.
Online tutoring is now widely accepted as an effective, convenient and cost saving means to learn many subjects; ESL perhaps most of all. You or your child and I are working closely, with texts and activities visible on both computer screens. In these classes I am following a program developed specifically for you or your child. Some years ago I developed a program (Write To Speak) which is a very easy way to improve speaking ability for those at an intermediate level of higher. As well, I also use textbooks, online resources and exercises to help the student.
Different learning styles means different approaches are needed to help the learner. My education background ensures that I apply this knowledge to patiently help the student to succeed.
