I have been teaching English to non-native students around Asia for the last 8 years. Throughout these 8 years I picked up many new teaching strategies based on the different difficulties I found my students facing in South Korea, Indonesia, and China. Although 5 of the years I had been focusing on teaching only English Language Arts, I also now have 3 years of experience teaching Science in English with translation given as needed.
My teaching style is quite simple and laid back, however I have found through my experiences that not every student can thrive under a specific one teaching style. Therefore, I try to mix up my activities within a lesson to reach all learner types and make my classroom an environment where students want to be.
