Prior instructional experience teaching English to students of all ages in Guangxi province, China from 2011 to 2016, as well as years of academic tutoring work. I've driven motor vehicles in some of the most challenging parts of the world during my travels.
I believe in teaching through humour. Patience is one of my strong suits, and nothing tends to upset me too much. Teens find me interesting, funny, and relatable. I've done a lot of things in my life, including learning Mandarin Chinese, working as a professional chef, and making jewelry. My goal when teaching is to be both entertaining and informative. I'm also a perfectionist so I'll nitpick (in a fun way) until your driving improves!
