My name is Colm, I am an ESL teacher and I have three years experience teaching English as a second language. I have taught English as a second language in the UK, Central America and Asia teaching students of all ability levels. I have a great passion for teaching and I really enjoy seeing the improvement in a student and seeing them develop through teaching lessons that I have created and taught. I have taught students as a homeroom teacher, subject teacher and I have also taught on an individual basis for extra tutoring.
I am from the UK but I have lived and worked in several countries such as America, Honduras, Vietnam, Australia and Sri Lanka as travelling and learning new cultures is another great hobby of mine. I enjoy watching movies, listening to music and meeting new people.
Come along and enjoy one of my classes :)
I have a TEFL Qualification and I have taught both as an English subject teacher and as a homeroom teacher teaching English grammar, phonics, reading and spelling.
I have taught students with beginner, intermediate and advanced levels helping them to improve their conversation skills.
Each summer I teach students from over 40 different countries that fly to Scotland to learn English at an International camp. For this camp it is my duty to create the entire curriculum for these students, plan each of the lessons and then teach the lessons for the duration of their stay.
In my current job it is my duty to help start a new English Programme in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. My responsibilities include creating a yearly curriculum for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels along with speaking tests and a final exam. I am also visiting local schools to deliver presentations about the programme and test their level of English to then place them in the correct level. Finally I also teach in some of the schools and assist fellow teachers with lesson planning and classroom management.
My teaching approach will be totally focused on your needs and your desires for learning English.
My approach is a communicative one. During the first lesson, we will identify what you want to improve and work on, then I will design your lessons to your needs. After each lesson we can discuss what went well and what improvements can be made so that your English fluency is improving quickly. The lessons will be fun and relaxed so that you are at ease and feel comfortable as you learn.
For each lesson I will create new material for you to work on and we will practice together. I can also help you improve your grammar skills, increase your vocabulary, and teach you common phrases.
I can't wait to start working with you to help you improve your English skills. So LET'S GET STARTED!!
