International hospitality and entertainment worker offering interactive English second language classes for students who want to improve their English conversational skills

Methodology

I believe in starting with a warmer activity, allowing students to start interaction. I then move on to the presentation stage where I as the teacher would then present the topic and introduce the lesson to the students. Moving on to the practice stage where the students practice whatever was taught or presented in a controlled environment where I as the teacher would then assist the students in understanding and implementing what they have learnt. The Production stage of the lesson is where students complete an activity on their own, followed by the lesson recap, ending off the lesson where I as the teacher would evaluate student's progress for the specific topic of the lesson.

Background

I have been working in the entertainment and hospitality industry for over ten years, specifically in Casinos and Hotels. I started teaching private English lessons onboard cruise ships to fellow colleagues and crew as an extra income and have developed a strong passion for assisting others with improving their language skills.

A friendlier and more meticulous young man you won't find. If he promises something he always delivers. So you will find a good teacher in him. Sandy

Jay is one of the best conversationalists that I ever met. He is easy-going and friendly with impeccable work ethic. He captures a student's attention and interest with ease, thereby facilitating quick learning. I would definitely recommend Jay for his student-centered approach in his teaching and his ability to converse on any topic.
