My methodology is fun and contextualization. Especially for young ones, I don't see any point in weekly goals of words if the child cannot use the word correctly. This is how children naturally learn i.e. by looking around and figuring things out. I also do phonics drilling. But I make it fun. For adults, I just aid in their learning. I adapt to what the client needs.
I am a ESL teacher in China who has 2 years experience teaching all age groups (Kindergarten, K12, Primary, Secondary, University students, IELTS, Business English etc.). I have taught so many lessons. In fact, I might have taught about 2000 classes.

Role: Manager of Creative Development
I worked as a manager of creative development. My role was interdepartmental, I found creative solutions to potential academic problems and present them to the team. The bulk of my work involved concentrating on creating techniques, games and teaching methods for more effective teaching and learning online. Some examples include integrating TPR (Total Physical Response) into pronunciation which is very effective at all age groups. I was often called upon to teach as an Online Educator.

Role: Online Educator
My role as an educator was very diverse. My primary role was to teach students native pronunciation by reviewing and refining previously taught classwork. The students ranged in age from 5 – 18 in public schools and I would often have to adapt my teaching methods for differing abilities. I also gained experience of teaching children in training centers as well as 1 to 1 adults, IELTS and individuals who wish to learn business English.
Children’s Tales: Beijing March 2018- September 2018
Role: Kindergarten Teacher (3-4 year olds)
My position here was to immerse the children in my class in an English speaking environment. During this role I reformed the teaching style within my classroom from a specific targeted approach into a comprehensive context based approach and environment. The children got the opportunity to practice using phrases and keywords in the correct context, this enabled them to retain their knowledge quickly. I was responsible for a class of children ranging in age from 3 – 4, I was in charge of my own timetable, this enabled me to develop good time management skills. Additionally, I planned many of the lessons to ensure that they were personalised for the children in the class.

I’ve known Robert for a long time, since I went to University.
He is an amazingly patient person and has a gift for making complex things seem really simple.
I’d recommend Rob because he is a trustworthy person that tends to go above and beyond for both his friends and students.
