BA Communications UNC - Chapel Hill
TESOL Certificate - UC Berkeley Extension
My name's Chris Simons. I'm an American with a BA from UNC - Chapel Hill and an ESL Teaching Certificate from UC Berkeley Extension. I'm 57 years old, in good health, and live in Sumatra, Indonesia. I have taught ESL and other subjects for over 20 years, before taking a few years off here to build a house and start a coffee shop with my wife. I'm a passionate, sincere educator with excellent references.
At this point in my life, I feel the need to work again. I have a solid foundation in oral ESL, having taught conversational English to adults in Japan and Korea. I have taught students in academic settings using textbooks and departmentally devised curriculums. I have a great deal of experience creating student-centered lesson plans. I'm also adept at new technology, using online lessons effectively with my university students. I'm adaptable - I have experience with all levels and class sizes. Above all, I love to teach! I look forward to hearing from you and working together in the future. Please see my resume for further clarification.
