Hi, I have been teaching English now for 3 years 6 months after completing my CELTA in London at International House. This was a career change for me after spending 20+ years in Direct Sales and a nine year tour of duty in the Royal Air Force as a Physical Training Instructor.
My first teaching position was in Thailand and I taught from ages 6 to Adult over an 18 month period from here I moved to Cambodia where I worked in a language school called ACE (Australian Centre of Education) I stayed here until August 2016 before moving to Manila in the Philippines where I am now. I'm currently teaching Chinese students online with Wall Street English in an office based scenario.
I have a BA in Business Administration from Nottingham Trent University.
CELTA - completed at International House in London in March 2013.
My approach would consist of a combination of methods including:
Question and answer exercises; conversation practice; reading aloud; fill-in the blanks; dictation; map drawing; pre-writing and paragraph writing. Vocabulary is emphasized over grammar. Reading and writing based on oral practice. Pronunciation practiced at early stages.
Evaluation is achieved through oral and written skills. Self-correction applied where possible.
Scrambled sentences; problem activities; role-play, etc.
Evaluation is achieved through informal activities and formal communicative tests. Listening, speaking, reading and writing are used from the beginning.
