About Usha

Hello - my name is Usha and I have been teaching English for the past 10 years. I hold a Masters in Linguistics (English) degree as well as a TESOL/TEFL certificate and have taught English in 4 different countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the United States.

In the course of my career, I have worked with various nationalities, ages and levels of ESL learners ranging from beginner to advanced students as well as teaching in teacher training programs and English for Specific Purposes (ESP).

My most memorable teaching experiences include teaching English in a volunteer program to Burmese immigrants in Thailand and recently to under served Chinese immigrants in the United States.

My teaching philosophy is one where in order to succeed, the students should be presented with material that relates to them. As such, I strive to create learning materials that are interesting and relevant to them. I also believe that, as much as it is important for students to receive a solid education, working with someone who is sensitive to their individual needs is also very crucial. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator I can be.

Feel free to contact me if you could use some extra help in English. Looking forward to hearing from you.
