Teaching Field ESL

I have taught at high schools, colleges and universities in South Africa and in Saudi Arabia. Learning to speak English does not depend on learning rules of grammar, what matters, is meaningful communication. Cognitive development occurs through social interaction (Vygotsky:1956). All people matter and I have taught all kinds of people. Students of different races, cultures, ages, smart, slow, males, females. I have taught in some of the most underpriviliged schools in South Africa. I have taught at some of the best universities in Saudi Arabia. I have taught from the most basic curriculum to the most advanced. If you need a person with my skills contact me. It will be my pleasure and an honour to assist.

I am ready, able and fit for purpose to teach in Taiwan.
