OCT and TEFL Teacher offers ESL, English, and History lessons/tutoring for online students and students in Hamilton, ON

Methodology

I focus on practical skills that you can use in your academic and personal life. I use a number of different activities, games, and approaches to ensure that your education is balanced and comprehensive. I teach speaking, listening, reading, writing, and grammar. As a language learner myself, I know the difficulties of learning a new language and I take that into account when planning lessons and tutoring. I am happy to take new students for tutoring or for formal instruction in English. I am also able to tutor high school students struggling with English and history. Please feel free to inquire if you have any questions.

Ambassador

Background

I am a qualified ESL teacher from Hamilton, Ontario in Canada.

I have completed my TEFL certification through the Via Lingua School in Florence, Italy. I have had the privilege of teaching English for young learners in Italy and in the Philippines. I have also taught all ages and levels when I worked at the English Unlimited Centre in Hue, Vietnam. Currently, I am a volunteer English Tutor with the Newcomer's Learning Centre in the Hamilton Library.
