I taught ESL at language schools and a private high school in Taiwan for eight years and am currently on the substitute list for ESL classes at Bates Technical College in Tacoma. I have an elementary teaching certificate from City University and I recently completed my TESOL certificate at Washington Academy of Languages on the SPU campus.
As a tutor I simply try to see what goals the student has, devise a plan to reach them, and put the student at ease as we get to work, continually pushing into enough new material to stretch our skills but not too much to discourage effort. I find students appreciate this approach.
