About Stephen

My name is Stephen C. and I am a qualified ESL/EFL instructor with more than ten years of experience. As an experienced educator, I am no stranger to student diversity. I have also studied diversity as a concept. I understand that culture, age, and economic background all have a profound effect on learning. These factors give each person a unique set of experiences. They create our expectations, and sometimes lead to barriers in communication. This is something I began learning about as an undergraduate student at the State University of New York at Oswego. As a student of education, I took a number of courses that focused on diversity, such as "Culturally Relevant Teaching" and "Schools and Urban Society." I also took courses that focused on cognitive development. These courses included "Adolescent Psychology" and "Educational Psychology." While completing my core requirements, I also pursued a minor in anthropology. This gave me more insight into how culture can affect a person's world view, including his/her attitude towards school and learning.

After choosing ESL education as a career, I pursued an M.Ed. in TESOL at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I took courses that focused on understanding (and teaching) second language culture. I even started to learn Korean. I spent a year teaching EFL in Korea after this. Most of my students were adults, and ranged from office workers and housewives to students at local universities. I also spent several years teaching at a private language academy in Fullerton, where I met students from all around the world. Most of these students were adults. Many of them were from East Asian countries, but several were from South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Some students had F1 Visas, and others were immigrants trying to establish themselves in the country. For the last five years I have been teaching students online. I currently work for Talkbean that is based in South Korea. Most of my students are children and adolescents, but I also teach office workers and university students on a weekly basis.

I love working one on one with students, and to see them progress and gain confidence in their understanding and use of the English language.

I have more than 10 years' experience teaching ESL/EFL, TOEFL, Grammar, Vocabulary and Writing. I taught in Korea for 1 year.
