Toefl made easier

The discussion was on point and raises a lot of ideas which are very useful and handy when taking the exam. The presentation was plain, neat and direct, it was able to deliver maximum results within a manageable period of time. The instructors diagram of how you do the brainstorming and the outline makes writing your ideas a lot easier. I would recommend this to my colleagues who would want to take, not only TOEFL but also IELTS, because I know the techniques will also apply. Good job! Hope to hear more test preparation techniques from you Sir.

Experience

I started teaching in 1996 in Macedonia where I discovered that being a native speaking English teacher meant I knew absolutely nothing about teaching English.

The following year, I moved to Moscow, Russia where I found out that having one year of teaching experience didn't make me a teacher either.

Following Russia, I moved to Italy where Business English was what people wanted and, guess what, my two years of prior experience meant I knew absolutely nothing about Business English teaching. Fortunately, I actually had a 'proper' job before being a teacher which meant I at least had a business background.

I have spent the last 13 years in Indonesia, putting together all I learned in the six years prior, finally becoming a fairly decent teacher, even if I do say so myself.

Now, I am putting all the previous years and experience into developing courses to help students from all around the world learn the English they need to get on in life.

If you're an ESL speaker, my goal is that whatever you need, you will find that I have done a course on it.
