For the past 7 years, I have been teaching students both on skype and in person. I am passionate about helping students from all over the world improve their English skills, so that they can get better work opportunities, travel, and study overseas. English is a connecting language. The more English we know, the better we can connect with people from other cultures and the better we can understand each other! English can help us to become a big, global family!
I also love this job because I can meet interesting people from all over the world, and I can live in any country with a good internet connection! So far, I have taught English online while living and traveling in Nepal, Australia, USA, Mexico, India, Cambodia, Thailand, Nicaragua, Germany, and South Korea!
Aside from teaching English and traveling, I like: cooking foods from different countries, yoga, meditation/mindfulness practice, visiting eco-communities, bouldering, vegan baking and cooking, and board games.
Whoever and wherever you are, it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope to talk with you soon!
