Introduction:

I focus on your learning goals & use my own fun & effective custom lessons to help you attain them.

ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS: My schedule is currently full, but if you follow me and send me a message introducing yourself and explaining your goals, I'll let you know when I might be able to offer you classes.

My wife is also an equally skilled & experienced teacher you should consider. Although she's happy to have free-conversation classes, she specializes in writing & more formal courses that follow an appropriate ESL book(s).

I'm an experienced, energetic & fun American English teacher. I grew up in Massachusetts & lived in New York City for many years. I have taught at language centers, primary & secondary schools, universities and major corporations. I teach all kinds of students, but I have developed a specialty in helping MBA applicants get into the top business schools. I taught English to thousands of students of all ages and levels in Thailand for 4 years. Now, I live and work around the world, teaching online and in the classroom. I LOVE to travel and teaching online allows me to work from wherever I want and meet interesting students from around the world. Since leaving Thailand in June 2014, I have lived in Spain, Italy, Tunisia, Croatia, Macedonia and now I'm in Albania. Maybe I'll come to your country next! In addition to English, I speak Spanish at a pre-intermediate level (B1+), Thai at a beginner level, and learn a bit of the local language wherever I go. For students interested in business English you will be happy to know I also run my own 3D printing and design company with my wife.

OUR 1st CLASS
This is very important; our first class is about getting to know each other. The first class is not a regular lesson. My job is to use this time to gather the information from you I need to plan for our future lessons. I will assess your current English level, discuss your learning goals, and I'll have a lesson plan prepared for every lesson after this. Your second class is your first regular lesson.

MY TEACHING STYLE
I believe learning should be fun. I use many different kinds of teaching materials, exercises, and technologies. Sometimes I use games and activities to help you learn in ways that don't even feel like studying. You learn faster and retain more when you enjoy your lessons!

YOUR LEARNING PLAN
I do a lot of work preparing for every lesson. I write lesson plans to guide each class and keep it focused on your learning goals. My teaching goes far beyond our Skype lessons. I become your English coach and create an English immersion program to help you consistently improve your speaking, listening, reading, and writing as part of your daily life.

LET'S GET STARTED!
You will not see any available sessions on my schedule. Only my current students are able to see and book sessions. Please message me if you would like to become my student. I teach from Monday to Friday and my lessons are 50 minutes (2 sessions back to back). I look forward to meeting you soon!
