Обо мне

I believe in bringing cultures together and creating better understanding between them. One of the ways I do this is by teaching English because it is the international language. Another way is teaching Social Science, so students can learn to think critically about society and other cultures. I enjoy making friends from all around the world.

Most importantly, I'm a teacher that will give you a clear goal and plan for success. Furthermore, I also use the most advanced teaching techniques, such as simulating real life situations and proficiently correcting your mistakes, known as task-based language learning. In addition, my curriculums are based on CEFR standards for professional learning, teaching, and assessment.

I offer the following courses and services:

《Comprehensive English - Speaking, Listening, Reading, & Writing》

《TOEFL & IELTS Test Preparation》

《Business English - Comprehensive》

《Business English - Interview Preparation》

《Academic/Professional Writing Skills》

《Academic/Professional Paper Editing》

《Social Science》: History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Cross-Culture Communication Skills, etc.
