About Adam

I started teaching English as a Second Language in New York City in 2002. I worked as an instructor and tutor for students from all over the world during my 6 years in New York. At this time I was also the acting music director for a local theater company and provided legal consulting for the record label Putumayo.

From 2007 to 2012 I lived in Paris, France where I continued to teach ESL and develop curriculum. I also studied and became fluent in French, and worked as a French-English translator, while continuing to record and play music in my free time. Since 2013, I have lived in Portland, OR where I work as a teacher, test writer and musician.

With almost 15 years of experience as an educator, I believe I have the expertise to help my students confront any challenge they may face. At the same time, I have worked hard to keep my classes fresh and relevant and to incorporate new techniques into my teaching toolbox. I have had great success using theater and music as learning tools, and have also merged my interest in computers with my love of education, designing online platforms, study sites and video games for my students. I believe that having fun is one of the most important keys to good learning and I work hard to figure out what interests my students and to build my classes around those interests.
