Luis GD

Profession: Business Administrator

Teaching Experience: I have been teaching college students and executives english for little over 10 months now as my main job. I believe that english is the biggest tool to succeed in a career and one of the best ways to meet and interact with interesting people. I tend to focus on two major aspects of the language; speaking and writing. I believe grammar is important as a basis but practice makes perfect.

Interests: I love being outdoors grilling and swimming in any body of water (lake, river, ocean, pool). I enjoy playing soccer and tennis. Riding my bicycle and hiking are two of greatest hobbies. I enjoy movies and tv shows while I'm at home. I am a very competitive person, and for this reason I enjoy watching all kinds of competitive sports.

Education: I am a graduate from the University of Houston where I received a degree in Bachelors in Business Administration Marketing. I am also certified as an Entrepreneur and have a minor in International Areas of Studies with emphasis in the EU.

Spoken Languages: English (Native), Spanish (Native)

Profession: LICENSED TEACHER, IELTS / OET CONSULTANT, AUTHOR (Math and Science) Only teaches students who are serious, obedient and are ambitious (",)

Teaching Experience: Please send me a message if you cannot see my schedule. I am an International, Well Rounded Coach! I target a student's weaknesses and improve them. So, if you are serious, obedient and willing to be trained specifically based on your needs, then this class is perfect for you (",)
I teach by RESERVATION ONLY (first come, first serve basis, 4 to 5 hours only per day).
August 2016 IELTS ACADEMIC RESULTS: L/9 R/9 W/9 S/9
Your coach who takes the IELTS examination yearly to give you the fresh tips and questions!
Though I am a full blooded Filipina (that I am very proud of (",), I grew up visiting Carson, California frequently during my childhood years. It was my second home at that time. Thus, I consider myself a Native English Speaker. I am well-traveled (Thanks to my mom ^^). I learned English as my first language. In fact, I was chosen to be the demonstration teacher in Hanyang University in Seoul because of my exceptional English, teaching strategies and classroom management skills. However, my teaching experience was never restricted in teaching Asians. I have been a good coach for Arabians, Indians, Brazilians, Spanish, Italians and a lot more.
In fact, you can often see me in different IELTS blogs where my students give feedback about my classes. From this, I get to earn a lot of opportunities to meet many people across the globe.
Since 2005, I have been teaching IELTS and I was able to establish fundamental strategies to make IELTS Speaking and Writing easier for students. I slice every single criterion and inculcate the proper way of handling themselves, even under pressure. I value time and I want us to work through a lot of content during our classes. I make sure my students' thoughts create their answers, so that they can easily remember them. I just suggest or brainstorm with them to gather more information from their own experiences.
I can also teach OET, ESL, TOEFL, TOEIC and writing students.

Interests: It is my student's interest that keeps me going. Assisting them to achieve their band score in a short period of time without too much technicalities is very important for me.
