I've taught EFL for almost 15 years. Along with that l've done test preparation for the GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL. I was also an oral examiner for the British Council doing the PET, KET, and FCE.
I believe in asking questions and expecting students to provide the answers. As for test preparation, it's important to be as clear and as detailed as possible.
No Honors. No Awards. Just years of experience of doing something until it worked.
I graduated from Virginia Tech long before the shooting took place with a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts and Science that included engineering math and science, art history, urban affairs, and science and technology studies. (That's the study of the philosophy, history and sociology involved with science and technology. I know a little about a lot of things. When I got to Bogota, I did the CELTA.
I did most of my teaching in Bogota, Colombia, but I moved to Costa Rica a few years ago. It's better here.
