I am here to make you and/or your child comfortable with English and all it's complexities. I am TEFL certified, with a BA in Philosophy. I have taught in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. The ages I have helped range from 12 to 70; and from taught classes with students with no English to fluent. I have given classes on grammar and nuance, as well as the four pillars of English Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening. I look forward to working with you!

I played baseball for 15 years and have knowledge that will make you or child more skilled in all aspects of the game. I was a catcher, though I have knowledge in fielding as well. I can help refine your hitting style to fit your game, hitting and learn situational playing while at the plate and in the field.


I have taught in Korea, Peru, Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia and my last job was in China at Huaihua University, which is located about a six hour bus ride from Changsha, Hunan, PRC. While most recently I have been teaching at the university level, I have a lot of experience teaching kids and adults of all skill levels (beginner to advanced).
