Introduction:

I am an expert at collaborative story telling to enhance English speaking ability.

Greetings! My name is Jorden. I am an English tutor available for your use. I also work at my local library, and I write novels. For fun I practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and host a virtual tabletop role-playing game based in my fiction. I am basically a DM for a long running Dungeons and Dragons game. I have a varied and diverse teaching background. Try me out. I would love to help you expand and improve your English use.

Teaching Specialty:

English Basics › Accent Reduction

Since I live on the West Coast I have a "Hollywood" accent, and I can help students speak like the native speakers in most movies.

English Basics › General

I have the gear and experience to teach students of all ages that are new to English.

Methods & Tools › Role-play

As a game master for a number of role-playing games I can facilitate collaborative story telling.

Writing › General

As a published author of several fiction novels I can help students with high level editing.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

I follow the news and pop culture. I can draw on current events and recent movies and shows to propel a conversation.
