Qualified ESL English Teacher with TEFL Qualification hosting fun and interactive Online English classes to children from ages 6 - 14 years

Methodology

I am a 38 year old female. I am a qualified ESL English Teacher with a TEFL Qualification teaching English to children online.
I teach children from the ages of 6 -14 years old.
I teach children in a 1 on 1 class, so they have my undivided attention.
I use PowerPoint presentations in my lessons, as well as online English grammar games to facilitate learning.
I also use ESL certified lesson plans and I teach from the Oxford Discover series online E-books for children.
I am kind and patient, and my classes are full of fun and laughter.
I believe children learn better through visualization, so I use graphics a lot.
I am a fun loving tutor, I like to make my classes fun for the children. I believe if they enjoy the classes and if I keep them interested, they will also learn better.

Background

I am a qualified Wealth- and Financial Planner with 10 years of experience. I recently decided to follow my passion, which is to work with children. I obtained my TEFL Certificate which is ESL certified, to teach English Online as a Foreign Language. I have been teaching English Online now for a year to children in Vietnam ages 6-14 and I'm absolutely loving it!
