Hello to all of you students out there! My name is Peter, and I have been a teacher of ESL for the past 16 years. I studied Education at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.
I teach conversational and business English, as well as test preparation (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS). I am also able to tailor courses to suit a student’s specific goals. I am knowledgeable in other areas, such as law, marketing, advertising, cinema, etc.
My teaching philosophy is LAUGH WHILE YOU LEARN!
I strongly believe that learning a foreign language should not be a scary experience. I enjoy interacting with my students and building a very good rapport.
I was born and raised in New York City, and completed all of my studies there. During my 16 years as a teacher, I have worked with students from over 25 different countries. These include: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, the United States, China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Russia, Siberia, Brazil, Argentina, etc. I began in a formal classroom, but have done online teaching for the past 10 years.
During my lessons, I emphasize proper pronunciation, and correct my students in an encouraging and positive manner. My lessons are fun, diverse and quite interactive. If my students are comfortable, then they will be more interested in the learning process. Teaching is my passion, and I have a very strong work ethic. I truly enjoy making a difference in the lives of my students.
Currently, I live in Mexico, which I enjoy very much. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, traveling, cooking and surfing the internet. I also enjoy the cinema quite a lot, and watching movies at home. I am really looking forward to working with you!
