About DinoHello friends!
A bit about me.
I was born and grew up near Vancouver in the West coast of beautiful B.C., Canada. Since 2009 I’ve been travelling, living and teaching ESL in different parts of Asia. I began teaching for both a private language institute as well as an international school in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. A year later I found myself in Kunming, China and completed the TESOL and TEYL courses. After 3 years of developing my knowledge and skills in the “spring city” I’ve settled down again here in lovely Chiang Mai, Thailand.
When I'm not preparing lessons or tutoring, my time and energy tend to go towards food, friends, music, studying Thai and spending time in nature, though not necessarily in that order!
What about my lessons?
I’m very flexible and build my lessons based on your learning wants and needs. Whether you're improving your English for travel, business, study, pleasure or to meet people, I can help you.
My philosophy of teaching is to create an environment that enables supervised exploration of the language. It's my belief that you learn a language "better" when you learn it in a way that is meaningful to you. That means focusing specifically on the language you want to learn and in the way you want to learn it.
Through the use of Skype's screen share and my own visual presentations, we work through a variety of speaking and reading activities which vary from lesson to lesson. My focus is on correcting and improving your pronunciation and grammatical accuracy as well as providing interesting and fun content to talk about!
