Hi, my name is Tom. I have seven years experience teaching English to students of all ages, ranging from preschool all the way up to advanced English and IELTS. I am especially interested in how we can live a good life while also helping others and improving society, and I bring this into the classroom in the form of discussion and probing questions that require my students to think on a deeper level and consider what it is we value, and why. I am a proponent of the notion that you must understand the culture and psychology of a language if you want to excel at it; thus my lessons often incorporate these concepts.
I’m very interested in the art of rhetoric and the psychology of language and structure, how these affect the reader and their varying levels of persuasion.
