Personal Description:

My name is Jonathon , just call me JJ. I teach ESL, English as a Second Language. I work at a downtown language school. I used to teach in Japan but in Vancouver I teach many students from all over the world. I tutor students one on one, usually to help prepare them for language tests such as IELTS and CELPIP or prepare students for university in Canada.

Tutoring Experience:

10 years teaching experience.
4 years private tutoring experience
TESL/TESOL certified

Tutoring Approach:

Freedom of schedule. You book the time. No cancellation fees.
For casual/conversational ESL tutoring I like to use TV shows. I make my own worksheets from popular TV shows on Netflix such as How I Met Your Mother, Friends, the Office, the Walking Dead and so on. Or you can choose the TV show. They are great for vocab and listening activities. And you can study at home with the worksheets I give you. Listen to the vocab, make your own sample sentences, and then in a meeting we check together and practice more by speaking!

For test prep, such as IELTS, I give sample and practice tests and instructions on how to do the different sections of the test. I specialize in teaching essay writing. I give a lot of homework and check the results together and assign possible scores during our meetings.
