Why he loves teaching online:
Who would not like it? I love the freedom to organize my own schedule, and have access to students all around the world! I am also free to travel and work from any location.
Always be open to learning how to be a better teacher. The Lexica TESOL training course really helped me, because I learned so much during the course and also from the other teachers. It really inspired me to continue to "perfect" my art of teaching. So I would suggest to keep reading teaching books and learning new skills. Now I really prioritize that my students' will ENJOY my classes, not just learn information. Also, after taking the Lexica TESOL training, I always know how to explain something. I do not fear that my student will not understand something, because I have 30 different methods to help them learn. If they are having a difficulty, I switch to another method and they always get it!
