Hi, I'm Teacher Mac. I am an American that lives in the Philippines. I have been here for about 10 years and that means I know about language learning. I know the difficulties and techniques, I have been teaching online for over 5 years and I Love it. I meet people from all around the world. I am always researching one topic or another and spend almost all of my free time learning about any topic that catches my interest, I think Students have to have fun in class to learn. I try very hard to find what makes them happy and use that as a place to start teaching. I believe students need to be comfortable and engaged to get past the fears of making mistakes. Learning to be a good teacher means learning to be a better listener Is a motto that I like. This was a quote I heard in my Tesol class that made perfect sense. My hobbies are my old 1985 Honda Rebel, Which I spent 2 years restoring. I am a bit of a techie when it comes to teaching. I have all the special software and hardware to make my classes the best they can be. Video and audio and internet has been my biggest areas of development. I wanted my classes to be something special and looked forward to. If you're looking for a dedicated teacher then you have found what you have been looking for.
