I specialize in all forms of professional communication in business, interviewing, writing, examinations, basic conversation and kids phonics training.
I have been a professional language trainer over 12 years. With a B.S. in Mass Communication, Extensive business background and being TEFL Certified I have taught thousands of students from around the world.
I use a very dedicated lesson planing system, specifically designed for your business and professional needs.
As a professional language instructor in China and Thailand for the past ten years, I have found many ESL students with difficulties reaching their true potential. I have also found traditional models of learning to be rigid and outdated for progressive thought in the high-paced technologically driven communication world we live in today.
These issues are very important when it comes to speaking at high levels or high pressure situations. My system brings together the best learning programs into one comprehensive lesson planning system, and is adjustable to each specific need and goal of the learner.
I have lived in Asia for many years now, I have a strong understanding of Spanish Chinese and Thai. Tough I am not too bad at speaking these languages, do I know the feeling of not being able to speak at the level I would like; especially in high pressure situations, or when you most need it.
That's why I'm here to help.
I use the best and latest in teaching methods and textbook materials utilized the world over. My goal is to help you achieve your potential as an English language communicator.
My education encompass a long career as a news reporter and journalist as a Mass Comm. student from the University of Utah. I have degree in Business Management from Weber State University. My master education is in Multi Media Film, MFA.
I have successfully instructed thousands of students to pass entry exams of all levels, get great jobs, get into great universities and succeed at all levels of speaking, writing and communication for professional and interpersonal use.
