I have been teaching English online and in face to face, in person, for over 2 1/2 years now. I enjoy helping my students learn and improve.
I am originally from Ephrata, Pennsylvania in the USA, but currently, living in Bangkok Thailand.
I have lived and worked abroad for most of the last 7 years, especially in Latin America. I lived in Santiago Chile for 2 ½ years, Peru for 13 months, Costa Rica for 4 months, and studied for my CELTA certification in Bogota Colombia for 4 weeks. In addition, I served in the US Army in West Germany for 2 years during the Cold War era, and as a child, I lived in Japan for 3 years with my parents.
Before I started teaching English, I worked in Supply Chain Logistics for 20 years. I worked for 2 international companies, Pfizer a pharmaceutical company and Bechtel a construction company.
Right now, I teach English online with Cambly and develop and write English lessons for IELTS, conversation, grammar, and articles for reading comprehension. I am a top-rated with Cambly. In addition, I am subcontracted to review and hire online tutors for an online English learning platform.
My lessons are casual, fun, and productive. I try to focus on letting the student talk as much as possible. I do make corrections, but I cannot and will not correct every mistake my student makes. If I did this, my students would lose their confidence in speaking.
I would love to help you with your English learning needs on Cambly or through private online or in person. I use a video chat app called Zoom, or I can use Skype.
I look forward to teaching you soon!!!
