Hello,

I’m Brian. I’m an American writer and educator. I have more than one year of experience teaching English conversation and writing to native and non-native speakers. I've just returned to Chicago in March 2014 after working as a full-time ESL instructor for two semesters in Thailand. I have a bachelor’s degree in interactive design and a master’s degree in international journalism. In March 2014, I self-published a book of stories called There Were These People. In February 2013, I self-published a book of photos and writings called London and a Year. I’ve done my fair share of journalistic things for a bunch of different publications. I did the ones I’m most proud of for The Morning News, The New Statesman and Gapers Block. I've also worked professionally for more than six years as a web designer.

I approach my teaching, writing, and everything else I do, with a deep and innate interest in people. I get to know my students and teach to their interests and comfort levels. I believe that learning can/should be fun, and that there should be many laughs had along the way. This is how I try to approach every lesson, whether it involves role­playing, storytelling, singing, songwriting, reading, listening, poetry, game­play, student interviews, drawing, story acting, etc. I've worked with my previous students on everything from Beatles' songs and Bukowski poems to straight grammar and pronunciation and slang, and I've thoroughly enjoyed watching them engage and progress along the way.

Thanks for your time,
Brian
