Tutoring Approach:

Having taught ESL at schools in Canada, South Korea, Japan, and Australia has allowed me to work with a variety of students with different needs, backgrounds, and ability levels. This has challenged me to become a versatile, adaptable, and compassionate teacher who remains sensitive and supportive to the unique needs of my students. By creating relevant, engaging, and dynamic lesson plans, I help foster my students’ learning and motivation. Having taught courses on Grammar, Reading, Writing, Communication, Pronunciation, and test preparation for IELTS and TOEIC has helped me become a well-rounded, communicative teacher
