My career in teaching ESL/EFL began in the summer of 2007 when my wife I moved to South Korea to teach English together at a private language academy. In the fall of 2008, I was hired as an adjunct instructor for Southeast Missouri State University’s Intensive English Program. Consequently, I began my graduate studies in TESOL soon thereafter. During this time, I taught IEP courses, main university composition classes, and tutored ESL students at a local private high school.
After I earned my M.A. in TESOL, I was hired as an adjunct instructor for Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Intensive English Program. Then in the fall of 2011, I joined the Ohio Program of Intensive English.
