About Daren

Currently working as an ESL instructor, I'm trained in 40 methods of Language Acquisition Methodology.

I understand the nuances of learning languages, as I've learned to speak fluent French. I'm also able to converse in Spanish, and Japanese. In addition, I am studying Haitian Creole, Nepali, Swahili, and Karen as hobbies. I've found that when a person learns how to learn languages, they can learn many of them.

I have recently taught in English language in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and in Moscow, Russia. I have taught in French language in the New York Metro area, and in New England. In addition I've taught in Japanese language in Kobe and Tokyo, Japan.

The 40 different methods that I employ are based on cutting edge neuroscience research on how, and why we learn, as well as classical approaches.

Let me put my abilities to work for you.

First 30 minutes are free (for new clients only)!
