Hello,

I've spent the last five years living in Taiwan and China, teaching English to all ages from 3-63. There isn't a skill level or age I haven't taught. While it's been great living abroad, I'm ready to return home now and continue teaching.

Here's what you get when learning with me:

--someone with years of 1-1 and small group teaching experience
--customized lessons for whatever you need
--experience teaching TEFOL
--help with reading or essay writing
--fun

Having lived in China for a long time, I'm also fluent in Mandarin. I've taken up to HSK Level 5, and can help level 1-2 learners.

My schedule is totally flexible and I can work around your needs, so don't hesitate to contact me.

Mike
