Colin Young

(Teacher Trainer)


Hi, my name is Colin Young. I am a teacher, a trainer, a traveler, a runner, and a language enthusiast. I am originally from Canada, but have been living overseas for over 10+ years in China, Korea, Turkey, Malaysia and Australia! English teaching was what brought me around the world and I have experience teaching all ages and levels, ranging from 5 year old kindergarten classes to rocket scientists at Samsung. I arrived in La Paz, Bolivia in January 2016 and have been enjoying training the English teachers of the future in our TESOL Certificate program at instituto-exclusivo!
