Get to know our teachers: Khruu Paul

No school can be great without a team of excellent teachers. Luckily for us (and you), PLS managed to snap up the best language teachers on the island. Khruu Paul is one of our English teachers – he splits his time between teaching private lessons and teaching our level 9 & 11(Elementary) ‘English for all’ group course. We figured it was time for him to share a little something about himself with all of you.

Where are you from?

I’m from Montana, U.S.A

How long have you lived in Thailand?

I have lived here in Thailand for almost 7 months.

Why did you decide to teach English in Phuket?

I wanted to move to Thailand, but I wasn’t sure where in Thailand. After completing my TEFL training here, I decided to stay in Phuket and luckily for me this position opened up. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

How would you describe your teaching style?

I like to create a relaxed class atmosphere where I can have fun with my students while they learn English.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a 24 year old American guy who quit his job to move to Thailand. My university degree is in Finance / Accounting, which I am happy to say  I do not use anymore. I’m an easy going, down to earth guy, so come say “hello!” sometime.

How do you like to spend your holidays and days off?

I like relaxing and going to new places. I try to do something new each weekend like try a new food, see a new place, or do a new thing.

Can you speak Thai?

Nid noi! I can’t hold a conversation, but for the basics I do alright. Everyday I learn more and more from the Thai teachers here and from trying to practice outside the school. It helps to know a bit of Thai.

What are your recommendations for the following:

  • Restaurant: Chicken Biryani rice, near to the school!
  • Thai Food: Fried Thai curry with crispy pork.
  • Where to watch the sunset: Any beach, but Kata beach is my favorite.
  • Market: Kathu Market
  • Sightseeing: Phuket Old town, Wat Chalong, Big Buddha, Kata and Surin beach.
