About Timothy

I completed my Master's degree in TESOL at USC and am currently teaching ESL at American English College (AEC) in Monterey Park, California. I originally started at AEC as a student teacher, completing my practicum requirements for my graduate degree. I became a full fledged teacher shortly after completing my Master's. Prior to working at AEC, I taught English abroad in South Korea. These students possessed a wide range of English abilities, which pushed me to adopt a variety of teaching methods in order to accommodate them. I apply many different teaching methods in my classes and adjust them as needed. The more flexible a teacher is in class, the better chance the students will have at academic success.

On top of the valuable teaching training I received at USC and my work experience in the field, I feel that my cultural background greatly increases my abilities as an ESL teaching. Both my parents immigrated from Hong Kong and in turn convinced their brothers and sisters to also move to America. Because of this, I grew up in a heavily influenced ESL household. I have always spoke English to my extended family and have been informally teaching them English my entire life. Becoming an ESL teacher has been my ideal career long before I even realized it.

I teach my regular English classes in the morning, so I am available for tutoring sessions every evening. Feel free to contact me so we can set up a meeting
