Hi there, my name is Daniel and I am an author (my first book is called Someday Now Forever) and TEFL certified English instructor. I have been teaching English online for over 2 years and before that taught English in person in the Philippines. I am a dual American/Canadian citizen, but I grew up in an international community in Manila at a school called Faith Academy. Since graduating high school I've attended university in Germany and Canada and will complete my Bachelor's degree in film production soon.
My missions as a teacher is to identify my students English goals and prepare them to meet them through custom tailored lessons. I do as much as I can to boost my students' confidence, because I find that this is often the greatest barrier to success. I enjoy watching my students improve and it is a joy for me to see now as some of my past students are doing well in American universities.
PLEASE NOTE FOR STUDENTS UNDER 16 YEARS OLD:
I am currently accepting new student under the age of 16, but these will be half hour classes, not full hour. Because Verbling doesn't allow for the scheduling of half hour classes besides trial classes, you will be given a re-usable coupon for half off each lesson so you will be paying the same rate for the 30 minute classes instead of one hour. In my experience teaching children online, longer classes tend to cause students to lose focus and may lead them to get frustrated.
Please message me with any questions you may have. Also note that MY AVAILABILITY WILL CHANGE IN SEPTEMBER, 2018. I will update my availability when I know my schedule.
Thanks so much! I look forward to learning with you.
