Chris Kottman

Teacher of Music

BA Music Education, Kent State University, Kent OH, USA

CELTA, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Chris has been working as a Music and English teacher for the past six years. He comes from Cincinnati OH, USA. After finishing his Music Education teacher programme in Kent, Ohio USA, he left for Vietnam to study to be an English teacher. He lived in Ho Chi Minh City, teaching English, for three years. During his time in Vietnam he worked with children from preschool through secondary school. He left Vietnam to return back home to Ohio, where he taught primary school music in Middletown. After a year of being home, he missed travelling and living abroad, so Chris moved to Czechia to teach English internationally again, teaching in Prague for one year before coming to Britannica. Chris is an avid listener to many music genres but his favourites are: techno, house, hip hop, alternative rock, indie rock, and punk. He plays the French Horn and Trumpet, and is competent at the Saxophone and Piano. He also produces music as a hobby, but is too shy to share it with anyone! Other hobbies include: running, reading, and hiking.
