His experiences with his students, including a high population of ELL students, has prepared to adjust his instruction to engage students of all age-levels, skill-levels, and levels of English acquisition.

 

Does that make sense to you?  It is the bio of someone offering a 120 hour TEFL course.  I was almost interested.

For starters missing an objective pronoun (after prepared) and the word population should probably be proportion.

Should be an interesting 120 hrs!!!

And has does not agree with experiences.  A high population.. sounds like my school in Phoenix.. students were often high.  

 

I seldom nitpick on grammar.  It is too easy to slip up... but, I was a business major, and I am not selling a course.  And what is it with people in the education sector, being so close to the vest about their degree.  It is one of the most straightforward, simple, and important facts you can state about yourself. Do I smell a Filipino ghost writer, or would they do a lot better?

Looks like it has been translated from Thai (by a Thai) into English - or should I say Tinglish?

The “has prepared to adjust” section makes no sense. It reminds me a little of the “flowery” English sometimes used by English speakers born in India.

And I'd reckon to change the word has into have:

A theory which explains everything? It explains nothing! Karl Popper.

 

If it only was that simple. And the convoluted intro would make me shun this place as well.

 

There will always be some you won't reach, JMHO.
