My name is Doug Karalius. Nice to meet you! I am from the city of Seattle in the USA. I have been teaching English to students in Korea for over 11 years, and I have been teaching at a university in Korea for 9 years. I have a Master’s degree in TESL English Education from Framingham State University in the United States.
I really enjoy teaching students using interesting stories that we can read, speak and write about. I have written a book of stories about amazing people and events, and I am currently working on my second book now. I think that reading and speaking about interesting stories is a great way for students to learn and have fun using English in class. This type of study also works very well in an online class, and I have had great experiences teaching stories using the Sprout program.
My hobbies are playing guitar and playing sports. I have played guitar since I was a young boy, and I love playing baseball with my friends in the spring.
I hope to meet you soon and help you have fun improving your English!
