TESOL Certified Teacher - Business Specialization / All types of lessons

Hello dear students, my name is David. I was born in Toronto, Canada and I lived there for more than 12 years.
Currently I reside in Serbia. I'm a very talkative and social person. Driven by my love for socialization I have traveled around the world and I've met a lot of different people.
I had an extraordinary experience in working with children aged 3 to 14 years as well as with adults. I have experience in various spheres and some of them are business English and music English. I have been well trained to work with students of all ages and have been complimented as a very positive and fun young professor.
My hobbies are music, cooking, traveling, watching TV and cooking shows and playing video games. I am also fascinated by Asian culture and history.
I want to transfer my mindset on to you and to teach you fluent native English. I take pride in helping others succeed and I care for my students. Hope to see you in the classroom.

Teaching Specialty:

Topics › News Articles

I especially love reading news articles with my students. Articles from websites such as CNN, BBC, Time, VOA are one of many that I read with my students on a daily basis. I always ask my students if they want to read by themselves or to repeat after me. I correct their pronunciation and analyze the article with them and answer any questions they might have. Afterwards we spend our time discussing about the story.

Test Prep › Eiken

The EIKEN Test in Practical English Proficiency is one of the most important tests in Japan and therefore many students want to prepare for it because they need it in order to advance in their professional career or simply to check their proficiency level. I have hundreds of hours of EIKEN teaching experience and many satisfied students. I prepare my students for all levels of EIKEN tests from "EIKEN 5th Grade" to "EIKEN Pre 1st Grade" which include both writing and listening materials. I let my students use some of their own materials or my personal materials and even some online materials if need be. I always explain everything to my students and try to answer all of the questions if required. It is a very important test and that is why I try to do my best to make my students prepared

Test Prep › IELTS

I have been preparing students for IELTS Speaking Test for almost 5 years now. I am always provided with IELTS Speaking Test material by the school or by the student if he/she wishes to use his/her own. I use British Council or any other website for additional questions if they are required. I always listen to my students carefully, measure time with a stopwatch during their answering, type their mistakes and evaluate their answers with them and give them positive feedback and advice. I also provide my students with valuable tips on how to behave during the actual test.

Test Prep › Other

I have been preparing students for IELTS Speaking Test for 2 years now. I am always provided with IELTS Speaking Test material by the school or by the student if he/she wishes to use his/her own. I use British Council or any other website for additional questions if they are required. I always listen to my students carefully, measure time with a stopwatch during their answering, type their mistakes and evaluate their answers with them and give them positive feedback and advice. I also provide my students with valuable tips on how to behave during the actual test. I have also prepared students for the Zhongchao exam in one of my schools.

Kids › Singing/Dancing/Game

I am a trained singer and musician, so teaching through music comes naturally to me. Children tend to remember song lyrics quite often and when the words are paired with a catchy melody and a dance choreography, they will remember the lesson material even more easily. If we add games with the lesson materials the classroom becomes a fun and a memorable way to learn English.

Writing › General

Even though people focus on speaking, I firmly believe that writing is quite important as well. With proper writing people demonstrate their grammar proficiency and are able to express themselves in best possible way. Written communication can be as important as verbal communication. I have many years of experience correcting essays, emails, articles and many other forms of texts that include general English, business English and similar. If you are a businessperson , a journalist, a teacher of English or even a writer who wants to make sure that your texts are well written, I can assist you. It is my goal to make sure that my students write properly and learn new things during each and every lesson.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Interview Skills

Job interviews and school interviews are both major parts of our lives and they could easily determine our future, therefore it is very important to prepare for such big moments in our lives. I helped numerous students to prepare for important life changing job interviews or interviews for MBA. There is an increasing demand for MBA level of education among companies around the world. For that reason good preparation is a necessity and this is a perfect place to get prepared for that big moment in your life. I interview my students using their own material or my material. I make sure to give them proper feedback and advises so that they could unlock their full potential. So if you are in need of some good training, look no further, you are at the right place.

English Basics › Vocabulary / Useful Phrases

Do you want to say more than "Hi" and "How are you?" Well, I am eager to expand a students vocabulary and teach him some useful words, phrases and expressions for general conversations and special events, as well as antonyms, homonyms and synonyms. Learning English is one of the best ways to improve your life and the prospects of getting a good job. You will learn common phrases to ask how someone is, express how are you are, how to invite someone here, how to respond to situations… among other situations so that you can improve your English Vocabulary and use these common English phrases when speaking in English.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

Free conversation lessons are based on student's wish. I let my student decide what he/she wants to talk about. I am a person who is interested in all kinds of topics. I enjoy the conversation with my student and make sure to point out their mistakes and correct them accordingly and give suggestions about their sentence construction depending on the student's proficiency level. My main goal is to let the students enjoy conversation and let them express themselves in their own way and give them some useful tips.

Kids › All Ages

I have over 5 years of teaching experience with children of all ages and I have to say that I really enjoy tutoring children. They are so fun to work with and always seem eager to learn. I always ask the student what he/she wants to do if he/she didn't choose some material or I ask the parent if he/she sits beside the child. In addition I use flashcards, songs, children stories and even English learning games. I make sure that children have fun learning experience but I also make sure that they learn the meaning and pronunciation of new words. I have experience with both individuals and groups of children. Best way to learn is to learn through fun.
