I am from California, with a TESOL Certificate, and in the Fall of 2017, I will begin my Master's degree in International Education. I currently live in Spain, but last year I was teaching full time ESL to adults and teenagers in Taiwan.
In my lessons I focus on several key techniques, such as:
-maximum student talk time
-giving clear and minimal instruction
-clearly defining students' goals and taking active steps to achieve these goals every class
-working on language items in focused achievable chunks
This communicative approach allows students to learn through the process of communicating in class.
