Online English Teacher from California


Business/Organization Type: 

Hi, my name is Richard Whitaker and I am a native teacher from San Diego, California. I have been teaching for almost 13 years. My first teaching job was a, "How to draw comic books," class at San Diego High School. After that I wanted to travel the world and experience different cultures so I came to the Philippines and started to teach English. During this magical time, I have had the luxury of meeting and teaching students from all over the world. To include just some of the countries I have taught to would be: Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Russia, Brazil, Denmark, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Libya, and a few others.

Even though I am a certified TEFL teacher, I can still consider myself to still be a student. One of the rewards is to always be able to learn about culture and appreciate the different views people have upon the world. The other major benefit I receive from teaching is the magnificent feeling of constant forward progression of the student’s English level.

I am very confident to teach English to anyone virtually upon any level. Main reason being that I have taught children’s English, business English, job and college interviews as well as KET, PET, FCE, IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and BEC.
