Licensed teacher looking to help students of all ages learn English in downtown Toronto!

Methodology

When it comes to teaching ESL, I take a communicative approach. Having my students speak and get involved with the materials is an integral part of my lessons. I love to give constant feedback and get my students thinking about the most practical ways to use language. This could be anything form ordering food at a restaurant to booking a flight ticket over the phone.

For more advanced students I often supplement classes with articles, blogs, and news stories. Using these materials we will go through any difficult vocabulary and discuss contemporary issues with English as the main focus.

Language is a tool used to communicate and I believe the more tools we have the better!

Background

I am a licensed teacher and have been teaching for most of my adult life. I have taught a variety of subjects ranging from English, History, and ESL and have a lot of experience teaching abroad. I lived in Korea for over 4 years, and am comfortable helping people of all backgrounds and skill levels.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, an Education degree, as well as a TESOL certificate which is recognized by TESL Canada.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $ 30/h

Details

I would ask that all students give at least 12 hours notice for cancelled lessons. If a cancellation occurs under 12 hours a 50% charge will occur for that lesson.

We met in university and I’ve known him for 10 years. He’s not only knowledgeable, but also very friendly and open minded to a new culture. I heard so many great reviews students and he was awarded multiples times throughout his career, Fromm Seoul, Korea to Toronto. I highly recommend him, you will be glad you picked Kyle, I guarantee it!

I have known Kyle for over ten years - as a co-worker, classmate, and best friend. He is a smart, warmhearted, and creative person who will do whatever it takes to provide the best teaching experience. With several years of teaching English in South Korea and Toronto, you can't do any better than Kyle as a tutor.

I would recommend Kyle as a tutor because he has years of experience teaching ESL. He knows his way around lesson plans and how to personalize and customize his classes and feedback to the individual student. His friendly and funny demeanor will make any class with him lots of fun!

I cannot recommend Kyle enough as a teacher!
