ESL certified language and speech professional available and ready to students who are ready to learn!

Methodology

It is the teacher who humbles themselves and is able to learn from his/her students who is the most successful and feels most fulfilled because teaching is an ever evolving process, there is no stringent or set way to insist upon learning as we are all uniquely wired individuals and all have learning strengths and weaknesses

Background

Originally a man of language and music and having spoken and sung in more than 10 foreign languages, my skills are highly developed to help those looking to communicate with clarity and articulation. I have over 20 years of teaching experience and am available to help anyone in need of and or interested in bettering them selves through good, clear, and professional communication.
