Academic English Teacher (IELTS, TOEFL, Essay Writing, Oral Expression) All Levels Available

Methodology

I'm currently an online IETLS and TOEFL Teacher.
I've mainly taught English Proficiency Exams before such as IELTS and TOEFL, so my lessons are more practical/academic-oriented.
My lessons' structures are tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of my students, I normally identify the parts (Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing) where students need to work on the most and assign them the work needed.
I like to encourage students based on the skills that they are already good at and criticize them objectively on the things that they need to improve upon.
For me, it's all about dedication and care I put into every one of my students so that they know what is expected from me and the positive results motivate them as much as they motivate myself.

Background

I've taught IELTS and TOEFL back in China in a private institution for one year. I've had over 12 students (All teaching one on one) and the results of their exams are inspiring.
Two of my students Scott and Jason scored an 8.5 out of 9 in IELTS speaking test under my teaching, which breaks the record of the highest speaking scoring in Asia.
Another student of mine named Bryant has been taking my lessons oversea for a year now, and his IELTS overall score has improved from 6 to 7.5 over a year. (He is only 16 years old
I've had my moments and successes under that private institution "WHY CLASS inc“ and now I'm moving my expertise and talent over here in Canada.
So don't hesitate when you are in need of a dedicated and caring English Proficiency Teacher or an Oral Expression Teacher as I'm already here :))

I have known Yifan as a good friend and also a tutor. He explains very well and he will take the time to make you understand when you are confused or you don’t understand anything. I strongly recommend him as an oral english teacher

Had him as my TOEFL tutor, it’s been a pleasure to work with him and I’ve seen improvements in my techniques to approach different types of questions. Will definitely recommend him as either an academic English Tutor or an Oral Expression Teacher

Yifan's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
1. When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Yifan — I developed an interest in English proficiency lecturing since my first internship in Why Class Inc as an IELTS instructor. English has always been my favorite subject ever since Junior high school as I was obsessed with listening to American songs, which serves as a huge catalyst for me to learn more vocabulary in difference contexts. English itself is a language that is bestowed with so many different personalities and it is up to me to fill up the void between the traditional language learning and passion-driven learning experience.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2. What makes you passionate about your subject?
Yifan — I just love teaching because of the satisfaction I get when my students attain their goals and achieve certain results they desire. To gain that satisfaction, I would go the extra mile to care about my students, offering them my presence when needed as well as emotional support when they are stressed. Overall, teaching English gives me a strong sense of satisfaction and achievement and I love the interaction with my students.
QUESTION 03 | 05
3. What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Yifan — I just love teaching because of the satisfaction I get when my students attain their goals and achieve certain results they desire. To gain that satisfaction, I would go the extra mile to care about my students, offering them my presence when needed as well as emotional support when they are stressed. Overall, teaching English gives me a strong sense of satisfaction and achievement and I love the interaction with my students.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4. Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Yifan — Yes. A teacher that inspired me is my English proficiency teacher back in my primary school named Ella. She is such a joyful person to be around as her passion for her class is literally contagious that she made a variety of different games to keep us engaged. As a competitive person myself, winning every game she made during the class is a must for me, which gave me tons of motivations to put in the extra work in my spare time and learn the language structures, grammars, and vocabulary ahead of my peers.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5. What are your keys to success?
Yifan — My key to success is always be consistent with my results and processes to get things done. If I were to be passionate about certain things for three days and then move onto the next opportunity, then I would never ever be an expert in my field.
