Hey everyone! My name is Jack, I am TEFL certified English teacher. I have had experience teaching English in Mexico and online to different ages (children to adults) and levels (beginners, intermediates and advance students). Currently I am teaching English online full-time. I believe that the language learning process should be really enjoyable and interesting. Therefore, my goal is to make each lesson as interesting as possible, whilst moving towards achieving the students' language learning goals. I believe that the foundation of any successful learning approach, especially from the beginner to intermediate stage, is based on gradually improving comprehension and speaking skills. As the student moves into the advanced stage, I feel it is more appropriate to focus on the finer details, such as grammar. That being said, regardless of their level, I will always take the students' specific language learning goals into account when designing the lessons. Through learning Spanish, I am aware that language learning can be difficult at times and even nerve wracking when speaking. Therefore, I can empathise with the students and I always try to make my lessons as relaxed as possible.
Focus is in improving speaking, comprehension, grammar and pronunciation in group classes of Chinese students, aged 4 - 10 years old.
