My experience over the last 3 months teaching in Thailand has given me a broad perspective on the profession of an English Teacher in an Asian country. At first, I felt a bit lost as I had no idea as to what to expect, from a cultural angle as well as this being a completely new profession.


A lot of self-doubt and questioning persisted as I was moving away from a career where I was well established into something, I knew very little about. The leap towards education and teaching has been one of the most important and life changing moments in my life. I genuinely feel like I make difference to people’s lives each and every day.


I have a moved away from a profession which got to a point where everything felt a little too comfortable. I came to the realization that in order to grow and enhance my character I would need to move onto something completely different. A career that would build on existing as well as new skills and traits. Each day as a teacher proposes new challenges and I can honestly say that waking up each morning to go to work brings a substantial amount of joy to my world. I face new challenges and intentionally put measures in place to make my classroom a fun and interesting place to learn.


My teaching philosophy is quite broad and focuses on using methods that will keep the student stimulated, enhancing a continued interest in learning the language. I use various realia and methods to help elicit the necessary vocabulary and grammar with my students. I teach the way that I would want to be taught. I know this can be a tough philosophy as many students learn in different ways and hence, I like to use many methods that will allow for active participation during the learning process.


I have about 4 months of English teaching experience in Thailand along with a vast experience within various multi national companies. I can teach various aspects of the English Language related to reading, writing and listening as well as business english for those students looking to progress in their careers.
