teachers.aboutMe

My name is David B. Smith. I am originally from the Chicago area. I have lots of experience preparing students for speaking exams. I taught English classes for iBT TOEFL in South Korea and Cambridge's KET and PET in Saudi Arabia. More recently, I took teacher training courses for IELTS, Business English and TOEIC. I have my CELTA and completed modules 1 & 2 of the DELTA for advanced language teaching techniques.

I believe in being patient and balancing serious with funny to make classes enjoyable for all learners.
