Sobre mí

Hello, my name's Jay and I'm a professional British English teacher here on Verbling!
.
Here's a few facts about me!
➔ I filmed and edited my own Verbling video.
➔ Since the age of 17 I have founded, built-up and sold three businesses for profit.
➔ I have taught English to over 350 students in over 40 countries around the world.
➔ I drink far too much tea and coffee.
➔ I do voluntary work for UK law enforcement agencies.
➔ I achieved a First Class Honours Degree from university (Top 15%).
➔ I am a green belt in Shotokan Karate.
➔ I currently have a 1070 day streak on Duolingo - language learning platform.
➔ I always want my students to get the very best out of my lessons!
.
.
Here’s what I think about myself as a teacher.
➔ I am happy, calm, friendly, patient, understanding and student focused when teaching English.
➔ I understand that everyone is different and learns in their own way.
➔ I always actively listen to the needs of my students.
➔ I am able to adapt my teaching style to fit my student's needs.
➔ I use active listening skills to correct my students if they make a mistake. ➔ I am not afraid to challenge my students in my classes as this regularly happens in real life.
➔ I have taught myself to speak a little slower on Verbling , however, I won’t be offended if you tell me to speed up.
