Hi I am Teacher Dan, a native speaker of American English from Washington State in the United States.
I graduated from Everett College with a Bachelors of Science in Information Technology. In Highschool I was a tutor for students who were studying English as a second language. That was when I realized I had a passion for teaching.
Upon finishing school I started my own computer business in downtown Seattle. In my business I not only repaired computer hardware and software but also trained new employees for contracted companies and spent quite a lot more time in family homes teaching parents and their families how to use their computers for education and entertainment.
Later I moved to Texas and began providing technical support over the phone, which lead me to the Philippines where I lived for almost 8 years at first providing technical support before deciding that I wanted to begin teaching again.
I got my TEFL teaching certificate with I-to-I and began teaching online part time to mostly Children in China and Adults in Japan and enjoyed this very much. Meanwhile, I began designing call centers as my day job, which I continued until moving away from the traffic and fast paced life of the city.
Having moved away from the city, I had more time to devote to teaching online and to my family.
I have worked with a few online English Language Schools which all have different types of classes that allowed me to expand on my range of teaching styles and methods.
The students that I have taught have ranged in age from 3 years old to adults. I have taught private one-on-one classes, as well as single and group classes over the internet. My teaching method provides each student with a custom-fit combination of grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing. I enjoy using songs, games, and other resources in order to better demonstrate proper American English pronunciation in a fun and productive manner.
For beginner level students, I like relating and promoting sharing of things we enjoy doing with our lesson topic.
For intermediate and advanced students, I incorporate interesting discussion topics to expand their comprehensive abilities. I feel that I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher who is dedicated to getting my students excited about learning English.
There are so many fun things to learn and talk about, lets get started!
