i started teaching english overseas because i wanted to travel. since elementary school, i had dreamed of seeing the world. i took my rst teaching assignment in dalian, China because i wanted to practice the Chinese i had learned in college. i had no idea how passionate i would become about teaching.

Matthew Eng
