PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES
I have over 7 years of experience in teaching English to speakers of other languages, from age 10 to adults, from one-to-one to a class with more than 30 students. Therefore, I am aware of the importance of understanding individual differences and the ways to facilitate learners with different needs, motivation, and learning styles. I am a team player, a quick learner as well as a sociable, trustworthy and friendly person. Moreover, I am professional, passionate, responsible, as well as ambitious. I have founded my own English Centre, Joanna English, aiming at promoting Communicative Language Teaching in Taiwan since I believe that the fundamental reason for learning a foreign language is to be able to communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds. I love being with people from different age groups and cultural backgrounds and enjoy helping others.
