About John

I have taught English as a Foreign Language for nearly 8 years while living and working in South Korea. I have experience not only working for formal education establishments i.e. private schools, public schools, and universities. I have also tutored students of varying ages from elementary students through working adults. I greatly enjoy helping others improve not only as students, but better individuals, and members of a community.

When I enter the classroom, or lecture hall, as an English instructor - my focus is specific. That focus is to present useful information to my students while serving as guide and mentor on a fantastic journey, tapping into the curiosity of their minds by exposing them to well established ideas and introducing new concepts in fun, interesting ways, but from a “functional” standpoint. By “functional,” I also mean practical. Students thrive on gaining new knowledge, but they need to know “Why” they are learning it and “How” they will use it in the future. They want to be inspired to learn, and one of my goals is to be the catalyst.

I have a M.Ed. Curriculum & Instruction, ESL Specialization
and nearly 8 years experience teaching English as a Foreign Language overseas. I have TESOL Certification.

Teaching should always strive to go beyond the simple divvying out facts and knowledge or even the training of certain skills. Instead, teachers have a responsibility to broaden the students’ horizons and motivate them to critically examine their values, goals, and ideals, to help students develop their interests and abilities to the fullest capacity to become better persons, better workers, and better citizens, as they learn to consider, respect, sympathize, and empathize with others of different backgrounds.
