Former college professor gives classes on General English, Academic English, English for Immigration Consultants and IELTS.

Methodology

"Maximize LTT (Learners' Talking Time) while minimizing TTT (Teacher's Talking Time)" could be the maxim that encapsulates my teaching methodology. This way, I get my students to explore first hand the world of their target language to its fullest.

Background

An MA in English, Cambridge CELTA and TESL (300+hrs) certified, I taught for 10 years, in Canada and abroad, Academic English, IELTS, iBT TOEFL, SAT, Business English at colleges and institutions. My average IELTS student has roughly scored a 7.5.
