个人简介Personal Profile

My official teaching career began in 2009 in South Korea where I taught in both the public and the private education sectors. My South Koreanteaching experience extendedfor nearly five years and included students from the primary school level all the way to adults who sought to use English as tool for professional development.

In 2014 I left South Korea to attend the Masters in TESOL programme at the University of Edinburgh where I gained excellent insight into the world of linguistics, second language acquisition theories, and TESOL methodology. Furthermore, I received specialized training on TESOL Curriculum design, implementation, and review.

I’m currently working at the International College of Xiamen University where I teach IELTS speaking
