I'm Tarntawan, and I graduated Master's Degree in TEFL- certified. I used to be an English instructor at the university. I used English to communicate with my students in class. I taught at the university for 13 years. There, I also taught Thai to my students. I taught Thai to foreigners from many countries, such as America, Vietnam, Spain, China, Hong Kong, etc. My students learned communication skills from me. I was excited since it was challenging. Currently, I have at least 4 years of experience in teaching an online class.
I have a passion for being a teacher. I love transferring my knowledge to others and learning from others. "Everyone can be a teacher, but only some are the teacher with soul." For myself, my reward is not money but the success of my students. I am patient, kind, friendly, and open-minded. I love exchanging ideas with others on various topics. I enjoy talking to people from different countries in order to learn from them. Learning can take place everywhere.
I am specialized in communication for all levels of students. I usually carefully plan the lesson for my students based on their learning styles or request. I believe that learning by doing is productive in learning language and also leads to speaking naturally. However, if you need more skills to cover, we can discuss them in class. I provide the handout, exercises, assignment varied on each individual. For teaching material, I have a variety of materials such as audio or media: songs, films, and commercials. I plan and design my teaching materials by myself; therefore, if you are about the book, No books, but I provide handouts.
Moreover, I also lead the conversation about current topics, including slang and expressions in daily life. I teach according to the lesson plans and lead to the updated topics or trends that can draw your attention and motivate you to speak more. For intermediate and advanced levels, the topics are varied on interest and can be tailored by the students. Surely, the amount of speaking Thai should be encouraged, and I speak less amount in English, too.
Feel free to have a trial lesson to see how I can help you to become an effective Thai speaker.

I enjoyed the trial lesson because teacher was so willing to communicate about what my expectations and goals are and what she can offer. She seems to be very professional with a lot of teaching experience and has a great teaching philosophy promoting active learning. She develops various materials and is not lazy on assisting with all aspects of language (pronunciation, listening, reading, etc.) which some teachers here definitely are. She is also passionate to discuss current affairs in Thailand which would definitely help me understand Thai culture more and better connect with my Thai friends.

I really enjoyed my trial lesson with Kruu Tarntawan. She has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to teaching non-native speakers, Thai. I was impressed by the variety of activities and lesson plans that she has created to make her lessons both fun and effective. I am excited to continue taking more lessons and improving my Thai language skills.
