To Whom It May Concern:
I recruited Tom Songer to work as an ESL teacher in late August of 2017. He worked with our foreign teacher team until May 2018 of this year. He taught mainly middle school students but also took some classes in the local elementary schools and also at our weekend after-school class where he prepared both phonics and reading lessons using material that we provided. He prefers to teach students at a middle-school level and above.
Tom has a diligent work attitude and cares deeply about his students and their opinion of his teaching. As a result, he strives to do his best to make his lessons interesting and to also satisfy the local teachers requirements of him as a foreign teacher.
Although the conditions and culture here are very different from what he is used to back in his home country he endeavoured to adapt and fit in with our teaching requirements and those of the local schools. He is a kind and sensitive person and takes his duties as a teacher very seriously.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
