My name is Marvin. I am an experienced English Teacher via Skype. I have been teaching English as a Second Language for more than three (3) years already. My former clients are from different countries, which include the Chinese, Japanese and Russian students. I usually teach Conversational English, IELTS, TOEFL and Business English for beginners, intermediate and advance level.
I really enjoy this career since it gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge and skills on English communication. My passion and interests are the following: literature, traveling, culture, arts and sciences while my hobbies are writing, swimming, listening to music, watching movies and reading books. I believe that «Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we can think about.»
I graduated in 2010 as Scholar of the Year in our university. When I was in college, I had served as a campus journalist in the official student publication of our university and became the Literary Editor for our Literary Folio, then eventually promoted as Managing Editor for Administration. I use the English medium with strict adherence to the grammar and word usage. I value the importance of English communication for it gives me the myriad opportunities for my career. On May 2008, I had the honor to become a Student Ambassador to Japan. I love meeting new people and imparting my knowledge and skills.
I have different types of teaching methods, depending on the subject being taught. I understand that teaching techniques need to be effective enough to be able to convey the concept completely. Learning objectives are set before the lesson proper is conducted so we would be guided with the course of our virtual education. Key concepts are highlighted for each unit or chapter so the student can digest and master the main concepts. Personally, I always try to maintain an interactive atmosphere during the class to make it more fun and interesting. I encouraged my students to express themselves without any hesitation. There’s a room for mistakes for we learn from it.
As an ESL Teacher, I specialized in teaching my students how to build superior vocabulary and use the up-to-date grammar. The language rules, or simply grammar, follow nonflexible laws and constant principles. Yes, grammar is a science but under the inexact classification. The period of time, the place where the English language is used, the type of persons whom you are talking to and the general human impulse are among the factors that would determine the correctness of the grammar.
