I like teaching kids as its more rewarding and fun, but I have many years experience training professional (adults) too. I'm pretty methodical, as I like some structure but as a consultant by trade use images and visuals (and games, maybe even songs for kids!)
By trade I'm an energy and software consultant (AI!) of 18 years, but I did teach English to children many years ago in Korea and had an amazing time. That year was so memorable I enrolled for Chinese and Japanese nightclasses when I cam back to the UK. Ten years later I met my Chinese wife while travelling on business in Germany and we now have a 5 year son, half Chinese, half Scottish.
Have listed below only the most memorable jobs i have had!

In ma professional career, the startup business I run was shortlisted by IBM to build an "AI solution for energy". I built a prototype and demoed this to IBM in Cannes in Oct-2017 IBM WATSON / Bluemix.
I have also mentored a "TELCA"-award winning team of three professional risk managers at Ecova for saving our clients a lot of money!
WORK EXPERIENCE - in addition to teaching English to children in Korea using high-energy lessons (games and songs!) to help meet aggressive student sign-up targets, I have regularly provided training sessions to clients throughout my professional career.
