Hello, everyone! My name is David and I’m from the USA. I have four years of experience teaching English. I have taught students in Korea and Vietnam. Three words to describe myself: patient, detailed, and compassionate. My approach to teaching English:
-The students must have time during class to speak both with and without correction.
-It is helpful for the student to talk about topics that are interesting and relevant to him or her; this engages the student and improves his or her English memory.
-I focus on students’ specific language errors and help them correct their errors.
-Motivation is important, so let’s make it fun and enjoy class!
