About Steve StubbsIn June 2012, I completed my undergraduate degree in Managerial Economics and Strategy for the London School of Economics. After that, I decided that I wanted to do something fresh and exciting and so I took on the challenge of teaching English as a foreign language to students in Thailand! I've always wanted to teach and experience life living in a different country. So, with minimal commitments in the UK, I thought, what better time than now?
After completing a 120 hour TEFL course, I was assigned by my agency to teach high school students conversational English in Southern Thailand. It has been almost 3 months since I started at my current school. Along with living abroad, I've always wanted to experience learning another language by emerging myself in the country of origin. I spent a little time before coming to Thailand to teach myself the basics of speaking and reading the language. After being in Thailand for 4 months now, and having practised with numerous native speakers every day, I am at a level now where I can use Thai inside and outside my class for more effective living and learning here.
On italki, I would like to provide services teaching English and basic Thai. With regards to English, I can provide tuition on many different aspects of the language, whether it is speaking, reading, writing, business English or even travel English. My niche here is the Thai services I can also offer. Having been studying Thai for quite a while now I think I am at a sufficient proficiency to offer services teaching basic speaking, reading and writing.
