For the past seven years, I've taught English to business professionals at all levels of English ability and business responsibility. These courses included presentation skills, email and report writing, teleconference communication skills as well as general business vocabulary, grammar and cultural relations.
Prior to that, I taught academic and immigrant English for 5 years. During this time, I taught courses in grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening and reading in intensive English programs. Also, I tutored students who were working toward their U.S. citizenship test. In addition, I designed and taught ESL courses in the continuing education department at Clayton State University and in the short-term summer program at Georgia Tech.

In addition, I have actively participated in Christian apologetics programs for the past 20 years or so.
I've also developed and taught a number of Bible study courses. Several years ago, I rewrote in modern English a well-known and commonly referenced book by Andrew Murray - "With Christ in the School of Prayer".
From 2003 to present, I've taught pronunciation skills to non-native English speakers including French, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, and others.

I've taught one-on-one and in group settings with successful outcomes.
For the past seven years, I've been teaching Business English in Taiwan, and many of my students did presentations in meetings, teleconferences, and seminars. I assisted them in preparing slides and scripts that were acceptable and appropriate in an English speaking context. I also worked with them on body language, effective use of the voice, opening and closing comments, persuasive language, and many other aspects of good public speaking.
