Joel Wilson

Profession: American English Teacher

Teaching Experience: I have been an ESL, English as a Second Language Teacher, for 20 years. I have worked at Kids Club in Busan, South Korea and for W. School at their Guri, Dosim, and Deosko branches in South Korea. I co-taught with local Thai teachers at the Daruna Bilingual Program in Ratchaburi, Thailand. I tutored adult learners at the Berlitz Language Center in Philadelphia, USA. I was also a Signals Intelligence Instructor in the US Army. This past 2016-2017 school year, I completed a 1700 hour AmeriCorps contract as a Reading Tutor in a public elementary school in Delaware, USA. After many years of teaching, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn English is not by studying grammar, but instead by acquiring the language through authentic communication.

Interests: I am enjoying a working retirement here on Cambly. I like traveling, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and eating spicy food such as Kimchi. I also appreciate Sci-Fi movies and TV series, especially Star Wars, Supernatural, and Stargate SG1, but NOT Star Trek because "to boldly go" is a split infinitive error!

Amelia A.

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

Teaching Experience: 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.
Achievements:
IELTS ACADEMIC MODULE

Of course, your success will depend on how much hard work, perseverance and patience you have to rejuvenate yourself in a better IELTS/OET study practice. If not, then this success will not be possible for you.

Interests: I am a well rounded person. I love EVERYTHING ABOUT CHILDREN, reading, outdoor activities, baking, handicrafts, cooking and music. I actually do enjoy many things about Science (Chemistry and Astronomy are my favorites!). I love to sing and compose songs during my free time.

K Maiella

Profession: College Professor/United States

Teaching Experience: I have taught at the college level for over 5 years but have also instructed at the elementary and middle school levels for over 6 years. I have worked with adult ELL and challenged learners.
I also work with ILETS students. Typically success in achieving your desired goal in ILETS ultimately relies on consistent and persistent effort an applying the skills you learn. I recommend the following schedule to provide ample preparation time. Approximately 4 months prior to testing. It is best to take a minimum of 60 minutes 7 days a week. Of course, there will be study time needed outside of class which relies on how much effort and time you can put into learning. Without putting sufficient time and effort into ILETS preparation, it will likely be difficult to achieve your desired goal.

Interests: I love computers and facilitating​ courses that empower learners. Some courses that I facilitated include college English, Computer courses, and Speech Communication classes. I am interested in technology and how their use are evolving in the business sectors. I enjoy discussing media and what is happening globally. I frequently watch the Discovery channel and even the History channel. I have a passion for learning and helping others achieve their potential.

Education: I have 4 degrees, 3 certifications, and I speak 2 languages.I graduated from the University of Arizona at Phoenix with a Master's degree in Education with an emphasis in Instructional Design, E-learning, and Computers. I am completing my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Technology (ET). I also have a Bachelor's in Management and Human Relations, and an Associate of Science with an emphasis in Media Communications. I hold certifications in the business, legal, and medical fields.

Maria Gallagher

Profession: ESL tutor

Teaching Experience: I have been tutoring English as a foreign language since April 2017. These are the jobs I have had in the past:
• Au pair
• Nursing Assistant
• Research Assistant
• Activities Coordinator

What kinds of lessons do I offer?

1. Conversation with corrections throughout or at the end of the lesson.
2. Vocabulary lessons. I will spend the first half of the lesson teaching you common vocabulary and phrases and then we will spend the second half of the lesson practicing the new vocabulary in a conversation. You can select and review a lesson before you call me.

(https://content.cambly.com/2016/05/24/conversation-topics/ )

3. Speaking practice for the IELTS exam.
4. Reading and writing for the IELTS exam. I ask students to use a laptop and download the screenshare application for these lessons. I set my writing students homework which we review in the following lesson.
5. Listening practice. I help students practice their listening by asking them the same question twice. The first time I will say the question naturally (but slowly!). The second time I also write the question and this is displayed on the screen. This technique works well for students who are good at reading or have the subtitles set to their native language.
6. Games (“Would you rather?” “Hangman” “Two truths and one lie” etc)
7. Storytime for children. Again, I ask students to use a laptop and download the screenshare application for these lessons.
8. Do you like music? You can ask me to play my guitar or ukulele!
9. Reading an article. You can bring an article to the lesson if you want. These are my favourite websites for articles:

You can download screenshare here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cambly-screen-sharing/cfljncbnkpbeifbhjnhfkmoekifihkoi?hl=en
