My name is Wesley but you can call me Wes for short. I am a 35 year old American male and have lived in five different states. I recently moved to the Philippines and I am learning Cebuano and Tagalog. I enjoy learning about new cultures and love meeting and helping people.
Me as a Teacher
There's hardly a reward greater than seeing a person grow in confidence and character. Language empowers change in individuals, which can change the world one soul at a time. I aspire to pour into others and watch them become empowered in English so that they can see their dreams become reality.
My lessons & teaching style
I prefer a conversational teaching style but also use a variety of visual and audio techniques. Of course, every learner is different and we must access what methods are best for you. Once we are comfortable together, I give gentle correction and lots of positive affirmation. I think the key to learning is repetition but let's not forget relationship. Few learn well without being properly empowered and encouraged. I look forward to working with you soon.
