I have been an English Teacher, specifically an ESL Teacher for over 12 years. I really enjoy working with International students. My wife is Chinese. I work well with K-12 and college students. I spent 1 year teaching ESL at a prominent school in China. Many of the students really liked my style of teaching and said I made it easy for them. I also taught in many other countries as well.

My goal is to help you to speak English fluently and understand what you are reading. I will be very patient with you and encourage you through the whole process. I will be your friend. I want to see you gain CONFIDENCE in speaking English. I will give you practical ways on how to start a conversation with your friends. You will be the initiator. All of the students that I have worked closely with have improved tremendously in speaking English. If they did it then so can you.

If you want to learn how to do a presentation in front of your class, I can help you. I have conducted many workshops and conferences, and given demonstrations on how to prepare and give a presentation. I am also a "Published Writer." I am an author of 3 books that have sold very well. I never thought I could write a book, but I did. If you desire to maybe one day write a book, than I will be glad to help you.

I really look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I have an AA degree in Biblical studies. I have taught the Bible in over 15 countries. I have a lot of experience working with international students. I am an author of 3 books and do public speaking.

My primary teaching is discovering Jesus's passion. When you begin to feel a little bit of how God feels about you even in your weakness, it causes you to run to Him and not from Him. I will help you to understand and encounter God's emotions over you. When you believe that God really likes you and enjoys you it will change your walk with the Lord. I can help you practically to grow in your Christian walk.

I have experience in counseling as well. I have helped many people with difficult struggles. If any of this speaks to your heart, please email me.

Public Speaking

I have been a public speaker for over 12 years. I have traveled internationally, especially SE Asia. I have conducted seminars, workshops and conferences.

I can give you some hands-on training and prepare you to be confident in your public speaking. You don't have to worry about what other people think of you.

I will also help you in your preparation. This will help give you the confidence you need to speak in front of a crowd. Please give me an email if you are interested.
