About Drake

I majored in Linguistics at BYU, and have minors in TESOL and Middle Eastern Studies and Arabic. I work as an ESL instructor at an international school in Utah County, where I am currently teaching TOEFL preparation classes. In previous semesters I have taught grammar and speaking classes to intermediate level students. My philosophy when it comes to teaching is to keep things interesting; by that I mean that I like to use various types of mediums when I teach (music, movies, games, etc), in addition to quizzes and tests. I believe that the more students are enjoying the learning process, the more productive they will be.

I was born and raised in northern California where I loved to go camping, fishing, and SCUBA diving with friends and family. I took 3 years of French in high school. I lived in the Philippines for two years and am fluent in Tagalog. I studied Arabic at BYU which has given me a good base knowledge of the language which helps me to be a better teacher to my Arabic speaking students since I know how their alphabet and language work. I love learning about other languages and cultures, and I love being able to teach my students about English and American culture as well.

ESL/ESOL

Grammar: I have had extensive education in English Grammar as well as how to teach grammar to ESL students.

Reading/Writing: I have experience teaching writing and reading techniques which include advanced reading comprehension and academic writing skills.

ESL: Much of my education has involved in depth study and analysis of language and how it works. In addition to this, I have learned specific techniques and approaches for teaching English to speakers of other languages.
