About Tyson

I was a middle school and high school English/History teacher for 5 years before heading off to South Korea to teach English abroad. While in South Korea I taught Conversational English to middle school children as well as Business English to adults.

I am currently an adjunct professor at Pierce College and teach in three programs: ABE/ESL high school completion program, Intensive English Program (teaching foreign students) as the lower level Listening and Speaking instructor, and in the Study Skills program helping students become better students by taking charge of their learning.

I love working with students and seeing the look on their face when they learn a difficult concept. To help students improve themselves. I enjoy learning about the students and taking their interests and incorporating it into my lessons.

I have been an English teacher for many years and enjoy working with students improve their English skills. I take a great deal of pride when I find that my students have worked hard and come out with a result they can be proud of. I enjoy the process of discovery and love helping students work on their papers, refining the final product.

I want to thank you for taking the time to look over my profile and hope that you contact me. I try to add as much humor into my lessons as I can.
