The way I teach a lesson will depend on the aim of the lessons and the type of students involved.
I have training and experience working with students of varying abilities and interests and will tailor my lessons t suit the needs of the student.
Each lesson will typically feature a starter, main learning, and then a practice activity.
The contents of the lesson will depend heavily on what the student is interested in and needs to improve on but I try to make my lessons as enjoyable and engaging as possible, with references to "real life" applications.
I have taught English in various ways for the last 5 years. I was an ESL English teacher in South Korea in 2014 before moving on to teach English as a subject at high school for the government. Before leaving Korea to return to the UK I taught business English to executives from companies such as GM, Microsoft, Bank of Korea etc. at the world's oldest ESL school. In 2015 I helped to create the South Korean University entrance exam.
I have recently become an NQT High School English Teacher at Glasgow University and have taught at two schools in South Glasgow and Renfrewshire.
I have an Honors Degree in English and a Post Graduate Diploma of Education as well as a British Council Level 5 TEfl qualification.
I have taught hundreds of students from middle school age to adult and have seen my students graduate from high school, university, or become promoted in their place of work.
I am an outgoing, passionate and hard working individual with many years experience in teaching English at a variety of levels. I have taught at a Public Middle school, Foreign Language High school, and taught Business English to many high profile companies, and have been involved in the creation of National Examinations and government-run gifted learner programmers. I have recently completed a PGDE at the University of Glasgow and am an NQT High School English Teacher.
