Mexican Experience July 2013-February2016

Whilst living in Mexico I have been involved in a variety of different projects. In Mexico city I taught business English for two companies (Nerles and Wailt) instructing groups of learners at a range of different institutions. I also set up an organisation called Power to the Speaker which aimed to offer young students of English affordable and practical language classes in the heart of the city. Currently I am editing and translating a book for the fantastic art project SEFT-1 and also more recently I've been commissioned by institute Laboratorio de Arte Alamada to do general translations and edits.

Since mid 2015 into this current year I have been working for Britannica books, organising English workshops and writing articles. I currently work at the University of La Salle as a professor of English language.

English Language Center(ELC) (Ulsan, South Korea) December 2011-December 2012

I worked for a year in a private language school in South Korea as an English Language teacher. I was the only native English speaking teacher at ELC and therefore concentrated mainly on the students speaking and conversational skills, vocabulary and pronunciation. There were 200 students at ELC comprising of elementary and middle school children (aged from 5-16). I taught all the students at least four times a week giving 45 minute lessons. Therefore, I am highly capable of managing and building rapport with students, whilst delivering high quality Language lessons to small and large classes. One of my other duties at ELC was to teach the Korean English Language teachers who worked at the school, to further hone their own English.

Isis Greenwich School, London April 2013-June 2013

After completing my TESOL qualification, in London, I was offered a teaching position at the same school I had trained at. Isis offers both free lessons to the community and paid lessons to English learners from around the world. I was involved in teaching a variety of classes composed of many different nationalities, ages and English language levels. I gained experience too in examining the different English levels of the numerous students who came to ISIS. I was also was involved in an evening class for advanced English learners who were studying for their English Proficiency Exams. I feel the experience I gained as a teacher in Korea was consolidated into a more concrete form at ISIS.

Teaching Approach

I believe its extremely important to treat each student in a respectful manner, whilst understanding that every student has different language learning requirements.
