Hello! My name is Teacher Red of Iligan City, Lanao Del Norte, Philippines. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication. I spent 10 years as a broadcaster, but I went through my career goals as an ESL teacher. I have been teaching English online for 5 years to students of different ages and grades, from different cultures, from different backgrounds. I received extensive training on education for young learners and adults, from level 0 to progression. In 2017, I received my TESOL certificate and I wanted to grow as a teacher. My teaching style is providing fish or teaching how to fish? That sounds familiar, right? They talked about how teaching and learning English for non-natives are very difficult. But I remember teacher Anne Sullivan teaching Helen Keller, who was struck with deafness and blindness. She taught the first-word water. With the help of her teacher, Keller learned the manual alphabet and could communicate by fingerspelling. Within a few months of working with Sullivan, Keller’s vocabulary had increased to hundreds of words and simple sentences. That’s why I was inspired and motivated to teach non-native English speakers. My class begins with a brainstorming session with students to learn the level of comprehension in English. Level 0 and low-level learners concentrate on phonetics and the practice of words. I use effective lead-in thru visuals, drawings, and realia, creative drilling, and practices, give examples of the word and how to use them in simple sentences, and most of all, make gestures and TPR. With regard to advanced students, I use an elicitation theory, technique to extract information from my students. I want to know what the student knows or does not know and what they have learned or not learned. I go beyond explanations, charts, translation, classification, and information. I want to share, almost every day, the numerous tools available for learning. I am extremely enthusiastic and passionate about my profession to excite my students and keep them in my classroom. So, what are you waiting for? Be my next student. Teach you soon!
