Hello, my name is Oakley and I am an American currently enjoying living and teaching English in the Philippines. I believe learning can and should be tailored to the needs and personality of the individual student. I have worked at a BPO company and a Marketing firm in the Philippines teaching call representatives Listening skills, American Accent training, Writing and Pronunciation. More recently, I have been working in an Academy here teaching Japanese, Koreans and Chinese: English Conversation, Business English and Exam preparation for IELTs, TOEIC and TOEFL. Learning English is hard work, but it IS possible to have some fun in the process! I think it is only fair to warn you - I provide constant feedback; I will be very honest and forthright about your ability/score, and finally, I have a quirky sense of humor and like to have some laughs in class!
