About Gary

My desire to teach and tutor comes from my innate happiness of helping individuals achieve their goals.

Having studied in Germany and traveled extensively throughout Europe, I see the importance, the need and the desire to communicate. Realizing what a struggle that can be, I have used my personal experience along with my educational and previous work experiences to hone my skills used to help others in the same situation or with the same goals.

I am a degree educated, qualified ESL/EFL instructor and tutor with experience teaching language learners from 16 years old to 80 years old. Classrooms have included up to nine different L1 speakers at one time, allowing me the opportunity to successfully overcome the many multi-lingual challenges that arose. I am confident with my skills I am gaining while obtaining my Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language. I also have no doubt that while presenting a new set of challenges, teaching a younger student will be just as successful and rewarding. As a creative and adaptable instructor, I am quick to help the individual student while not allowing others in the class to feel neglected. When available, I am fully capable of integrating my computer and technical skills into the lesson and learning. Mature and energetic, I have variety of outside interests and continue to remain committed to improving my teaching skills further and contributing to the success of any program or individual student that I am helping grow.

I am flexible in my schedule but do require a 24 hour cancelation notification.

Please feel free to contact me any time for help in your English language needs.
