After working many years as a software developer, manager, director of Asia, and COO I dropped it all to start teaching online. Without any regrets, I have never looked back.
Do you need help becoming fluent in English? Would you like to take lessons from a certified teacher with nearly a decade of experience? I can help you with your English speaking, comprehension, pronunciation, and other skills.
My method is simple and it works. You will take structured lessons through an online learning management system.
I have been teaching since 2012
Now here is the most important part about taking lessons with an experienced certified teacher like me.
While you take these lessons you will receive valuable solutions for any errors that you are making. This could be with your pronunciation, grammar, and overall fluency. best of all, I can simply show you the best way to convey what you want to say in an effective manner.
This is important and the reason why you should look for teachers who have these skills.
Probably the most important skill of an English as a second language teacher is pattern recognition.
By listening and finding patterns in how you speak English, it is easy for you to get help by making corrections at the right time.
This is what separates professional teachers from the average teachers.
How This Helps You
Me being a certified teacher does help, of course. More important than that, being a teacher online for almost a decade has given me plenty of time to highly develop the skill of finding what is holding English learners like you back.
Figuring out what is wrong, letting you know the errors, and then showing you what you need to do to improve your English is what I excel at.
A simple twenty-five-minute lesson with me turns into two to three hours of learning. How? Through follow-up lessons, you are able to practice on your own.
There is a proverb: “Give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life.” That is my approach with my students.
You will be empowered to learn on your own. That way you are not waiting for the next lesson to further your English language skills.
Lastly, one reason to take lessons with me is my background. Fortunately, I have traveled to and lived in many countries. I have had to learn other languages due to this. This helps you since I know firsthand what it is like to learn a new language.
If you are only looking for conversation practice you can find plenty of other teachers available.
One is in teaching children aged thirteen and up. Many of the children I have taught have moved to the US, Canada, or other countries where they need to speak in English. I also help children living in non-English speaking nations that are learning English so that one day they can go abroad for college. If your child needs help they can get the help they need through structured lessons. Also, I use one of the latest testing systems to track their progress.
Another specialty is teaching business professionals such as managers, IT professionals, international sales, marketing for English-speaking countries, lawyers, doctors, and others focused on international business.
My main strengths are in teaching you how to be more effective in communication during meetings, emails, conference calls, and through other correspondences such as business proposals and business plans.
On occasions, I do work with business professionals by helping to prepare presentations, proposals, and marketing materials.
You can contact me in case you have another type of need.
You become more self-sufficient
I would like to focus again on the fact that I help my students become self-sufficient. You do not have all the time in the world and an unlimited budget to take online lessons. Therefore, I have a series of tips and tricks for you so that you can learn on your own. Optionally, my lessons come with homework if that is what you want.
My background in diverse environments
I have been living in Asia for nearly 20 years. Although I do teach students from around the world, I do understand issues that Asian students have.
Prior to teaching, I worked in the IT field as a programmer, technical sales, as a director for two companies in Asia, and as a COO. This gives me real-world experience for those of you who are in need of help for your careers.
It also helps you since my business lessons come from real-world experience. Working with so many students of all ages with many different accents is another huge advantage for you.
Streamlined online lessons
I still maintain a technical background due to my background in programming. Therefore the systems that I have built for teaching you work extremely well. Some I maintain while others are using through a third party such as for my payment processing.
You do not have to worry about errors with the systems or it is difficult to take lessons with me. Nearly everything is automated. Furthermore, I am working on using artificial intelligence in the future.
