About me

Hi! My name is John. My favorite thing to do is travel! I'm a photographer and I use a Nikon camera, so I always document my trips with the best pictures I can take. I love to learn languages! I learned Spanish when I lived in Costa Rica, and I’ve tried to learn other languages like French, Italian, Portuguese, and even Russian! It's a hobby that's really fun to me. I play some guitar, and in my spare time I like to watch documentaries or try to cook new and interesting foods. I love learning about new cultures! I hope I can learn about yours.

Qualifications & Experience

I obtained my CELTA certification from Teaching House, New York. I'm also a trained and certified teacher in my state, New Jersey, in the USA. I've been teaching English for 3 years now. My first job was in Costa Rica. All of the classes were fun and engaging, I love to play games with my students. I currently teach private classes while traveling through South America. I also tutor students online from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and many other countries. I'm experienced at teaching grammar and pronunciation and I specialize in American English. I want my students to speak like a native! My students will learn the material and put it to use, like a real situation. I have been teaching online for over a year now.

Teaching Approach

I cover many different topics in my lessons! These include:

- General Phrases

- Sentence Structure

- Grammar Tenses

- Native Pronunciation

- Verb Forms

- Modals

- Useful Vocabulary

- Help with Prepositions

- Adjectives and Adverbs

- Comparatives and Superlatives

- Countable and Uncountable Nouns

- Phrasal Verbs

- Useful Idioms and Proverbs

- Themed Conversations

- Interviews

- Role Play

- Reasoning and Debate

- American Culture

- Business English

I love to teach! I'm very conversational and I teach through that. I also use articles and English textbooks to help supplement learning. Most of my lessons are strictly conversation (with corrections) because that’s the most important way to feel confident in speaking a new language. I tailor my lessons to each individual student depending on their need and introduce new vocabulary and grammar depending on things such as their carreer, lifestyle, or whatever we happen to be discussing in the moment. I try to let the student speak as much as possible and I only interrupt for corrections (and often use the text box to do so while the student is speaking). Over the course of my lessons I have seen substantial progress in my students.
