About George

I have a great passion for teaching ESL. What I love the most about teaching ESL is the feedback I get from my students about my class. For example, when my students tell me they are doing a lot better at school, or it's a lot easier for them to communicate in English in their daily lives. This is very rewarding for me to hear.

With regards to teaching experience, I have been teaching ESL/EFL for over twenty years. I have taught in South Korea and the U.S. In South Korea, I have worked in universities, colleges and private language schools. My students included children and adults. In the U.S., I taught ESL at a private Christian k-8th school. At this school, my primary goal was to prepare Asian ESL students to mainstream into the regular classes as soon as possible.

I believe that my educational background and teaching experience qualifies me to be a competent ESL Tutor. With regards to education I have a MA Degree in Linguistics (TESOL). As a result of completing the graduate degree program, I have a better understanding of what works and doesn't work in the practice of teaching ESL. In addition, as an undergraduate student I majored in Russian Language and Literature. As a result of studying Russian, I am personally more sensitive to the difficulties that. a second language learner faces. With respect to teaching experience, I have been teaching ESL for more than twenty years. I have worked in the U.S. and South Korea. My students have included children and adults with different levels of English ability from beginner to advanced.

If you are looking for an experienced, friendly, competent and patient ESL tutor, please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.
