An old time teacher who wishes to assist kindergarten, primary and high school students with their ESL or Language Arts homework

Methodology

My methods always depend on who I am teaching. With children, the conventional direct method (with games and songs), modelling and total physical response approach are often applied. For young adults, and professionals, structural approach and communicative language teaching are usually popular.

Background

I was a teacher for 21 years in the Philippines and Thailand, teaching mainly language related subjects. I am currently a school registrar here in Canada. I had a Bachelor's Degree in Communication, major in Journalism, took some units in Bachelors in Education and some units in Master of Arts, English Language Teaching. I did some tutoring to professionals, young children and young adults.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $7
Rate for online lessons : $ 20/h

Details

I believe, asking for a little bit higher rate for adults is reasonable. Likewise, travel charge should be higher as per travel distance. Cancellations in advance in case of emergency should be considered.
