Hello! My name is John White, I am a 27 year-old native English speaker from Liverpool, UK.
For the past 11 years, I have been coaching football from U5-U18s and teaching English to students from Elementary Grade 1 to High School, University Students and Business Professionals. During this time, I have developed skills which can help you improve your English language proficiency quickly.
I completed my Masters' degree in Sport Science in 2016, my 120-Hour TEFL Certificate in February 2021 and have been teaching Business English online since 2017.
I currently work in Andong, South Korea where I teach English through football to Elementary and Middle School students in Geyongsangbuk province. This is a unique project and one I am passionate about!
