This is how 2 referees rated Erin:
Hello! I'm a 32 year old woman from Texas, recently relocated to my husband's hometown in Canada. I hold a bachelors degree in Classics (Greek and Latin) and Great Texts from Baylor University and a masters degree in Classics from the University of Kansas. I also have a TESOL diploma with specializations in teaching business English and IELTS. I have over 10 years of teaching experience with native and non-native English speaking students aged 6-60 in settings ranging from online education to classrooms to cafes in the US, Canada, Korea and Russia.
I taught Greek and Roman mythology and humanities courses to undergraduates at the University of Kansas. I lived in Korea for 7 years and during that time taught ESL to children, adults and college students privately and in elementary school and university classrooms. For the past 6 months I have taught online English classes via Skype, helping Russian students prepare for the IELTS exam by focusing on writing clarity and cohesion and Korean adults work on their English fluency.
I think teaching is mostly about flexibility, adaptability, listening and knowing your audience. I like to learn as much as possible about my students and their learning goals when creating a plan to help them get the most out of their classes. In my experience, it's clear that you learn the most in a relaxed, enjoyable, and fun setting, so I do my best to foster this kind of atmosphere with my students.
