Description

My Statement:

I have had an extensive career as an English foreign teacher since the year 2000 and a colorful one as well. From the year 2000 until 2008 I taught everything from pronunciation to ESL books and then on to TOEIC English preparatory exam courses. A majority of those students were either in university or had just graduated from a university though on occasion I did teach some high school students and some older people in their 30\’s. In 2007 I received my Master’s degree in English Education. The next step in my English teaching was in 2008 where I actually went to South Korea to teach Kinder-6th grade. Children at the USA Academy and Pucheon Translation to teach adults English. I later moved to Manila, the capital of the Philippines to find work as during 2008 there was an economic crisis in the USA and in Korea so most of the Korean schools in the Philippines were going bankrupt so I opted to work for a Japanese company teaching specialized English courses and co-wrote an English slang book for the Edhen Miles school.

Later in 2010 I found out about online teaching and began to work for several agencies in China which tripled my pay as an English teacher from the salary I was making with the Japanese. During my time as an online English teacher I began to teach many things that I had never taught before such as IELTS, TOEFL, job and university interview questions along with teaching children from children’s books although most of my student were in their last year of high school or university students. In 2012 I had the opportunity to work at a private junior high school in Thailand mostly teaching the students pronunciation as their skills in English were very limited. Then in 2013 I worked for the University of Nizwa, Oman as a Professor of TOEFL as it is a major requirement at this school to enter your major or receive your diploma. Last year 2014 I worked for IED in conjunction with the Vietnamese Gov. Agency AIC to teach High school English teachers to use English for their English classes.

In the first half of 2015 I worked for Saudi Aramco Oil Company teaching their employees English. I have been teaching IELTS and TOEFL now for the past 6 years with most of my students getting over 100 for TOEFL and over 6.5 in IELTS. By this time after 14 years I have taught over 18,000 students from various countries in classrooms and online.

Sincerely,

JOSEPH WILLIAM MASON
