About Jonathan


Bio

I am friendly, easygoing, and have a passion for helping others learn. I taught English as a second language in China from 2009 to 2014. During this tenure, I held teaching positions at Dalian Polytechnic University, The Wuxi Institute of Technology, LvGuang Kids Education, and Shanghai International Studies University.

With the exception of a few Korean college students, my ESL students have been Chinese. I have taught listening, speaking, and reading to a wide age and occupation range...

I am friendly, easygoing, and have a passion for helping others learn. I taught English as a second language in China from 2009 to 2014. During this tenure, I held teaching positions at Dalian Polytechnic University, The Wuxi Institute of Technology, LvGuang Kids Education, and Shanghai International Studies University.

With the exception of a few Korean college students, my ESL students have been Chinese. I have taught listening, speaking, and reading to a wide age and occupation range including professionals, professors, undergraduate students and graduate students, and children. The class sizes and formats - one on one, small group, large group - varied greatly. The foundation of my teaching philosophy is to help my students communicate clearly. Having taught via all sorts of mediums using all sorts of material - PowerPoint presentations, beginner to advanced textbooks, handouts, games, etc. - I consider myself highly adaptable.

I am more than happy to provide prospective students with emailed scans approval letters I received from the several institutions in which I worked. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your English learning goals.

I taught ESL in China at three universities from 2009 to 2014. I taught three of the four macro skills of ESL - listening, writing and speaking. The preparation consisted of drafting lesson plans, syllabuses, and lecture slides, and compiling a huge inventory of ESL material from dozens of sources which I synthesized with my own, original material into lesson plans. The delivery consisted of more than 1,500 hours worth of in-person teaching and tutoring. I taught college students, children, and professionals. I have training from OnTESOL, a government sanctioned ESL organization. I can provide scans of all of the official documentation proving my teaching experience.

Literature,

Literature

The focus of my Bachelor of Arts at Old Dominion University was English literature. My study was enriched by a term abroad in the U.K. at the University of Leicester, in 2007. There I took three intense seminar courses: Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Romantic literature and literature of the Renaissance. In my coursework at Old Dominion I studied critical theory; I can help you understand a text from multiple critical perspectives such as feminism, liberal humanism and postmodernism.
