Introduction:

I speak naturally and can explain things using clear examples to help you understand.

My name is Robert Brower. I was born and raised in California. After graduating from UC Irvine, I moved abroad and now have over ten years teaching experience in three different countries. Although my experience teaching has been at all levels, from age 3 to 65, I prefer to teach adults. I also have several years management
experience in IT and in service industries. I have owned small businesses and have worked in large corporations developing excellent communication skills across cultures and languages. I have done a considerable amount of staffing and training. Living and working in five different cultures around the world has helped me to strengthen my inter-personal skills with an attention to detail, organization and punctuality.

Teaching Specialty:

Business Skills & Knowledge › Presentation

Use of specific topics, related to the student's field of expertise or interest to develop and reinforce situational vocabulary and conversation.

Everyday English › Free Conversation
