Introduction:

A relaxing, comfortable lesson with a focus on building confidence.

Hi there! My name is Eric Chong and I'm interested in teaching online through Skype.
I'm looking to help you with pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar and of course, natural conversation! We will focus on your interests and bringing out your personality and confidence so that you can feel more relaxed when speaking to strangers and meeting new people. It might be difficult but being able to enjoy conversation and making new friends is totally worth the work!

I will be referring to some textbooks during our lessons, but of course if you would like to use other resources that is totally fine!

Grammar - "Essential Grammar in Use" and "English Grammar in Use" written by Raymond Murphy

Pronunciation - "Work on your accent" written by Helen Ashton and Sarah Sheperd

Vocabulary - various sources, internet videos, newspaper and website articles as well as the vocabulary featured in the grammar and pronunciation textbooks.

I'm really looking forward to working with you on improving your English but most of all, I really hope you will enjoy English conversation :). Hopefully see you soon, I wish you the best of luck!

Teaching Professional
I taught a wide range of people ranging from 4-88 years old. Students of varying occupations and needs/wants. I taught conversational and business English. I have conducted lessons based on grammar, vocabulary pronunciation and general revision tips. Reviewing/assessing a student's ability and doing trial lessons to introduce potential students were also carried out by me. It was a full time teaching job of around 1 hour of preparation and 5-6 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Certifications:
2017
CELTA
An introductory qualification that taught me the basics of lesson planning, classroom management, mechanics of the English language and had a few assessed practical/written assignments.
