About James

JAMES M. is an English language teacher and tutor based in Los Angeles, CA. Services provided include teaching grammar, vocabulary, everyday speech, specialized English, improving pronunciation, accent reduction, phrasing, diction, reading and writing as well as editing and proofreading.



Dear Students and Parents:

I began working at the British Institute in 1989, shortly after moving to Stockholm from the United States. I have taught English at different levels, offering tailor-made courses for individuals and groups, specializing mostly in working with business executives and technicians in the telecommunications field. I have translated, edited and proofread documents, manuals, presentations and speeches for Ericsson in Stockholm and the American Embassy, among others. I have also prepared students for Cambridge Certificate Exams through adult education programs in Stockholm. After teaching for many years in Stockholm, I went back to school to earn a certificate/degree in nursing, and I have worked in healthcare and social services from 2003 to 2012. I also earned TEFL’s International Teaching Certificate and taught abroad in Greece and Malaysia during this period.

In addition, I have some experience with Public Relations, both in Washington, D.C. and Stockholm, including work with the American Embassy/Stockholm in 1992. Upon graduating from the University of Maryland at College Park with a B.S. in Journalism, I interned at Gray and Company Public Communications International in Washington, D.C., and then secured a full-time position with Public Affairs Satellite Systems as Stations Relations Manager in 1986.

I speak Swedish fluently and I am a dual citizen of the United States and Sweden. Additional references are available.

I look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

James
