I have been teaching English online for over 4.5 years to East Asian students of all ages and levels. I lived in Japan for 3.5 years and even though I returned to the US, I have continued teaching other East Asian students via the Internet. Whilst working in Japan, I was responsible for updating, modifying and creating new curriculum as part of my duties at my company. Before I moved to Japan, I had been tutoring children (K-12) in the subjects of English, Social Studies and History for more 10 years.
I lean toward a Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) methodology. Many of my students are from countries where English is not the spoken language, They are expected to learn a foreign language for the express goal of matriculating to a higher level of education. Since they do not have a choice in this matter, I want my students to experience the personal and occupational benefits of learning a new language in this ever increasingly global world of ours.
