Language should be learned through the ears, and not through the eyes. So I emphasise speaking and listening as the best ways to learn. I have long and broad experience which features six careers, and thirty countries, which we can use as a background to our lessons,. Let's have intelligent conversation and make our lessons positive and fun.
what should you expect from my classes:
I teach advanced students by discussing intelligent topics which require thinking about. I ask students to indicate whenever they do not understand, and I correct pronunciation and grammar errors made by the student.

Fifteen years of teaching English as a second language in Thailand, China and Laos, and also online.
my background outside of teaching:
My background experience includes accountancy, computer programming, business management, business ownership, restaurateur, rally driver, light aircraft pilot, traveller to 30 countries
