Introduction:

Meaningful English Conversation with Opportunity to Improve Confidence

Hello, 안녕하세요, こんにちは! I'm Clayton from the USA.

And I like learning...from experience--
I learned to teach English living in Korea 3 years. In Mexico I learned to be a whale shark guide. Living in Japan I learned respect for history and my community. I learned safety from hiking Nepal in winter time. I've traveled for over 8 years in 15 countries, learning something from each place.

Learning English from a native teacher you can experience an English speaking country from home.
I enjoy building confidence, so, I help students learn and use English. Every lesson is fun, practical and focused on improving you and your English. After we talk, you will be comfortable talking to natives.

I hope to see you in my class soon!

Teaching Specialty:

Methods & Tools › Coaching

My major was recreation management. I know how to coach someone to learn something new and have fun doing it. Learning English is like learning soccer, you need practice and someone to help explain it to you. Learning is more than just remembering something.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

I've lived in 4 countries. I have experience talking with non-native English speakers.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I've traveled to 15 countries. In each country I've heard different accents. I teach how to use your mouth and other parts of your vocal cords to make sentences. You will understand how to place your tongue, lips and throat as you talk.
