As opposed to other teachers, I want to concentrate on what the students needs are. After giving a small questionnaire to find out what the student wants and needs, together we come up with the right course. I find out the students interests and work with them. For example, if the students wants to learn about Canadian culture, or if the student wants to improve their writing skills for work, or prepare to take the TOEFL test, I can find material to help him.her.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Hello my name is Eric Major. I am an ESL teacher here in beautiful Toronto. I was born and raised in Montreal. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Education Specializing in Teaching English as a Second Language and have been teaching ESL ever since. I have had the opportunity to teach in various settings, college (Seneca, Centennial, and Boreal), language schools, and privately.
Teaching ESL for me is like traveling to a foreign country without the cost. You learn about different cultures and customs without having to spend so much money. While I do enjoy traveling, I cannot always afford it. So talking to people from different places, I can learn about where they come from. I am lucky to have traveled extensively in US (Texas, Arizona, California, Massachusetts, New York, Kentucky, Vermont, to name but a few) and in Europe (Hungary, Spain, England, Germany, Austria, Switzerland to name a few).
I love to travel, learn about culture, go to the theater, watch films from different countries, sightseeing, photography.
