About Dave

I have over 4 years experience teaching learners from all over the world. I enjoy helping learners build their English and their confidence as we work together towards their goals. I strive to create an engaging but relaxing atmosphere for learning to take place.

I am an easy-going person who understands what its like to learn a new language in a new country. I know that you have special needs and goals. I can make a learning program that suits what you need and how you learn.

I have a masters degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and am trained to teach all kinds of learners at any English level. I've taught and worked with learners from all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds.

I have training and experience in teaching general English as well as specific areas like Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading, Writing, Academic Writing, and Speaking. I also specialize in Pronunciation Instruction and Accent Reduction. I have been a pronunciation tutor, teacher, and soon to be presenter at an academic conference.

I have taught TOEFL and IELTS prep-courses and worked with learners one-on-one for the tests. In addition to this, during my graduate studies, I took courses on language assessment and testing (including these tests) so I understand the mechanics and ideas behind them.

I hope to hear from you! Let's work together to build your English in the way that is best for you!
