I work with authentic materials and authentic situations with a focus on communication skills. It doesn't matter if your grammar is 100% correct if no one can understand what you have said or written. I like to get to know my students' interests and take pride in helping them achieve their goals. Most of my students are still in contact with me, and I hope you'll join them!
I have worked with thousands of students from ages 5 to 85 in both Japan and the United States, several of which are now working hard toward degrees at universities in Chicago, Virginia, Texas, Indiana and more! Others are working as business leaders in Japan, Taiwan, and Saudi Arabia! Also, in addition to teaching writing and academic English, I am also a writer.
Mr. Curt was my English teacher at the ELS Center in Purdue University-Fort Wayne, and based on my experience I can say that he is an amazing professor, very patient and professional. I improved my grammar skills working with him.
I worked with Curt for years in our Japanese language and culture club on campus. He is always prepared for his lessons and shows a genuine concern for his students' academic success. Curt always tries to make his lessons fun and engaging even when the concepts themselves can be quite challenging. I'd trust Curt to teach my kiddos in a heartbeat.
I worked with Curt for a year at the ELS Center in Fort Wayne. Curt was a model teacher and colleague. He helped me to learn the ropes at ELS, and he had great rapport with all of the students.
