Let's improve your English!
Hi there! My name is Teacher Jeff, and I have been teaching English for 9 years in total. I received my elementary education certificate in the state of Illinois, United States in 2010. I taught for 3 years in an elementary classroom: 1st and 2nd grade. There, I used Common Core to assess students on their English grammar, fluency, reading comprehension, and writing. I transitioned to South Korea where I taught internationally for three years in Incheon. I started in a Kindergarten classroom where most of the teaching came straight from a book. Common everyday phrases were taught and emphasized. The more creative teaching came from the next two years, I was lucky enough to expand my English teaching horizon in 4th and 6th grade. Much like teaching in the states, I taught all of the same English subjects: grammar, writing, comprehension, and fluency. I consider myself very knowledgeable and skilled in teaching English as I have not only taught locally here in the United States, but also internationally to ESL students.
With me, you will receive quality English instruction and timely feedback on your pronunciation, word choice, and vocabulary usage!
My certification comes from the state of Illinois. I received it in 2010, and I am eligible to teach until the year 2023. I have 9 years of teaching experience altogether: 3 years in Chicago, 3 years abroad in South Korea, and 3 years teaching via Skype, 1-1, adult lessons, and at English centers in Chicago. I also taught for a few months at Kaplan International. There, I worked with ESL students from all over the world. These students ranged in age from 16 to over 50, so I had to adapt my teaching to many different types of students and learning styles.
My teaching approach involves detail, empathy, and consistency. With each lesson that I teach, I guarantee a very focused and attentive demeanor which allows students to feel comfortable to make mistakes and eager to try harder. Because students see me very vested in their learning, I have seen students over my tenure in education try harder and work more to improve their learning. I like to give students the tools they need to succeed instead of just giving them the answer. I ask a lot of open-ended questions, which allow students to think rather than memorize. This way, students learn faster with me as their teacher.
