About Thomas

Hi there!

My name is Thomas, and language and teaching are my two biggest passions. I started on my first foreign language when I was around 10 (French), and over the last twenty years have gained fluency in that language (it was my major, along with Linguistics), along with Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Catalan. I am also intermediate in Russian and Chinese, as I did my study abroad in China. I'm passionate about learning languages, and that has translated into a passion for teaching language as well. My passion for teaching ESL comes from my students and friends from abroad who have had a huge impact on me, and have really shown me how much learning English can impact their lives. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of seeing the kids I teach in public school gain fluency in English and start to communicate with their peers. Education fulfills me, and I think that helps to make me a great teacher.

I've been tutoring ESL online for years, and will shortly be moving to China to teach ESL full time in China. I have a TEFL Certification as well.

I have studied all the languages I tutor for a minimum of 15 years. I studied Linguistics and French at UCLA, and I have an intimate understanding of how language works on a universal human level, along with the knowledge of vocabulary and grammar that can only come with years of study.

I encourage you to contact me and ask questions, or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to helping you learn.
