About Michael

Hi. Thanks in advance for taking your time to consider this information.

I am an ESL/EFL instructor with two-and-a-half years of teaching experience, between Thailand, China and the U.S. I am in my last year of undergraduate studies in TESOL and Applied Linguistics. I've taught English language in public and private schools, as well as private tutoring environments. I've taught English for conversational, business, and academic purposes. This includes any materials development involved in TOEFL test prep and applications of a number of different methodological components of teaching language for conversational purposes. I've used my own constructions of authentic materials, Cambridge (TEYL) materials for diagnostic purposes, and many others.

In addition, I have extensive experience in cultural studies, intercultural communication and sociolinguistics. I've studied these formally with a specific focus in anthropology, cultural psychology and Eastern/Western civilization. My tutoring will be both holistic and eclectic in order to accommodate the linguistic needs and cultural backgrounds of individual learners from every part of the world. I also have extensive experience in successfully learning foreign languages myself.

If you need assistance with any English language needs, I would be glad to talk to you! I can provide tutoring for homework, citizenship testing, communication, business presentations, or anything that involves young learners and adult learners in their language endeavors.

Thanks again for looking. I wish you the best of luck!

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 am in my final semester of undergraduate studies in TESOL. In my coursework, I've taken several courses in testing & research methods, as well as assessment practices, curriculum design and systematic instructional design. Thus, I'm very familiar with the ins and outs of the IELTS exam.

In fact, I approach each session very professionally, and I conduct a needs analysis before delivering on any of the content. I've also taught English language in various capacities for four years, and I believe I'm fully capable of doing this job.
