2016 - 2017
Assistant Language Teacher InteracThis was my first point of entry into ESL. I taught fun, engaging lessons to young learners up to the age of eighteen. I taught large groups, long lessons and smaller groups, shorter lessons. I can teach in a traditional setting as well as online, so I am familiar with the advantages and drawbacks of both. This helps me maximise my online teaching and my knowledge of lesson planning and classroom control were all found here. To this day, I use formulas and games that I created in Japan.

Regular Teacher Landi EnglishThis was my first online teaching position, I taught from my home in the UK. I learned how to use online classes more interactive. I quickly figured out that though flashcards still have their place, virtual stickers and filters can be even more engaging. This is where the bulk of my online experience was formed. I know how to teach 1on1 and 1on2 thanks to Landi's format of teaching. I enjoyed teaching these lessons greatly and look forward to teaching many more.

Regular Teacher iTutorGroupThis position exposed me to teaching adults for the first time. I taught business English and Idioms and can now do the same in my own classes. The lessons are also longer here, so I have experience teaching up to 45 minutes online. Teaching higher levels also taught me to take a slightly different approach to my adult lessons. I learned to become more challenging and make corrections on detailed nuances of the language and used more explanation than gestures to help learners understand.
