Hi! I am Mary Jane Malona. I’ve been a classroom teacher since 2006, and I’ve taught English to students from countries like Korea, Japan, Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Saudi Arabia. I started teaching online in 2015. I teach English vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking, and grammar. I also teach test modules such as IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and OPIc.
Teaching is what I chose as my career because I consider it therapeutic. It’s a fulfillment on my part when my student is able to learn and improve through our class. I see to it that my students keep their focus and participate in the learning process. Moreover, I use different teaching strategies that are appropriate to the needs and goals of my student. And I make sure that the learning atmosphere in class is fun, engaging, and productive.
I believe that learning is not limited to knowing the subject being taught, but it’s also about building a good connection between teacher and student through meaningful conversations.
