About Darryl

I believe I have several qualifications, which would make me an excellent candidate for a tutor position with a student who would like to learn English. First, I am a native speaker of English. I hold a Masters degree in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second or Other Language), A Bachelors of Science degree in Educational Technologies, and a second bachelors degree in International Studies and South East Asian Languages and Literature. I can speak Chinese and Japanese at a rudimentary level. I have a valid teaching license certification in Thailand. I have over twenty years of teaching experience including fourteen years in South East Asia.

I have more than two year’s experience as a Home Based On-line English Instructor. I learned to use a variety of web based applications and learning management systems. I also developed and adapted much of my own content. I created materials for group work as well as individual task based projects.

I have worked for the University of Toledo (UT) as a Teaching Assistant while completing my graduate degree. I worked with international students at the American Language Institute at UT to help with English and cultural training. I worked at the UT campus Writing Center which tutors/coaches students and international students with academic writing assignments and projects. Also on the UT campus I worked for the Upward Bound Program which sends Teaching Assistants from the university into the local school system to tutor students in English. While I was a student at the Ohio State University I participated in the OSU Conversation Partners Program, which pairs students with international students to immerse them into American culture and coach them with their English needs. While attending these universities I have assisted in the administering and preparation of the TOEFL exam. During my fourteen years in Thailand, I have taken a course from the British Council that trains teachers in how to prepare students for the IELTS exam.

In my most recent position with Bangkok Christian College in Bangkok, Thailand, I was both an English Language Instructor and Web Content Developer for the Intensive English Program (IEP). My duties as English Instructor included teaching 25 grade 7 classes per week as well as the instruction of Thai Teachers in the latest professional development techniques. I also had the opportunity to instruct the local Thai police officers in English. As a Web Content Developer, I maintained the IEP departments multiple web pages and digital resources. I also documented any special and extracurricular events such as English camps, seminars, and presentations sponsored by the IEP department.
