Welcome to TESOL Planet!
Hello everyone! My name is Janet Samson-Yu. Teaching English is something I would love to do as long as I live.At present, I manage two groups of teachers: academic and ESL teachers. And they are spread around the country, teaching our Filipino and foreign clients. During free time, I compose poems, write novels and read books. I have written less than twenty books for children and adults, waiting to be edited and published. Ahh, my educational background...okay here it is:
During my elementary and high school years, I had been a consistent honor student, joining and winning in some writing contests. I graduated valedictorian, class 1997.In college, I took up two courses: Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education major in English (earned some units) and Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication (completed). I had been a scholar and dean's lister in my university. I worked for call centers, international school, tutorial centers and english academy where I was chosen as 'The Best Teacher' out of 52 teachers, for that camp.
Teaching style? I would love to engage my students in free talks. For me, for one to be better in English, he must be able to express his thoughts in it. Also, free talks will challenge more my students to think at the same time translate it fast in English.
But if a student needs the traditional way of explaining the rules in grammar, the classroom style,the spoon-feeding method just to inject the lessons in him, why not? I can do all. In my over-a-decade teaching experience, I have met all kinds of students, all ages, and I know how to interact with them. For me to determine their level, I have to engage them first in free talks, after that, I do the usual way of teaching, depending on their levels,of course.
At present, I offer private online English classes to different nationalities. I also provide teachers for ESL companies in the Philippines and China.
Well, that's it for today. I can't wait to meet you all! Good day!
