About Chris

I love to teach and I love to learn from my students, and meet people of different cultures. I'm a family man, married to a Thai national (one child). I have taught English as a Second language to foreign students mostly from Asia. I was recently employed at a private school in the north of Thailand where I specialized in reading, speaking, writing and in some cases public speaking. I love to use real life items in my lessons, and real life situations. I love to have fun, and it gives me joy to see a student learn English.

I have also tutored from small children to adults, to adults who want to pursue advanced degrees in the United States, or help them to get better jobs. I have a certificate in TESOL (120 hour course) and over 1,000 hours in the classroom.

My teaching style is easy going. I feel that students shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes when practicing the language. I am available most days and weekends, and will work with your schedule. I am also available on-line and am wiling to travel.

I like to have a fun easy going lesson. I don't believe in failure as long as you try and are committed to learn. Having lived among foreigners, and having a foreign spouse I know how difficult learning a new language can be.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals, whether its to improve your English, get better grades, or that dream job you are looking for.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

IELTS

I have a TEFL certificate from a recognized institution (120 hour course, teaching practice), I have also done writing and speaking assessments for my students at the High School I worked at (students age 16+), and have tutored students in public health who were applying to US Universities for advanced degrees. I also have over two years of classroom experience teaching writing, speaking, and listening skills using IELTS approved workbooks.

Public Speaking

I taught several years in a classroom setting, speaking and listening skills at a private school in Thailand (Dara Academy). In this capacity I taught the students public speaking techniques as part of their assignments and grades. I was, and still am a trainer. For example, in my previous employment I was the head trainer in the prospect management department of a large public university (the University of Florida) so I used this as a platform to improve my own skills.
