I am a native speaker of English, from Portland, Oregon U.S.A. I currently live and teach English in Cambodia. My Buddyschool profile is often inactive because students often schedule with me directly. I do a lot of local teaching and teaching online with students who contact me directly upon referral from friends and contacts. I can provide excellent teaching references from students and administrators upon request.
As a well-educated, well-traveled, and highly experienced communications and training professional with experience in government, business, academic, and social arenas, I know what it takes to achieve powerful language skills. For the past 7 years, I have been teaching English to students of all ages and levels in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. I have also taught English to immigrants in the U.S.A. who came mostly from Eastern Europe and Central and South America. In addition, I have taught native speakers of English who lacked valuable communication skills in reading, writing, and speaking. My broad teaching experience includes public schools, universities, English centers, corporate classes, English clubs, private lessons, online classes, and my English helpdesk.
My students learn to excel on ANY English exam, including IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, CAE, FCE, KET, PET, etc. My students improve their English communication skills, soft skills, confidence, and professional and social image. Most of my students achieve their goals of applying to western universities, getting high-paying jobs that require excellent English skills, or moving to countries where English is vital. Many of my students succeed in their English goals and find a whole new world of opportunities suddenly open to them! They learn to build their dreams in to reality!
My approach may be very different from what you are used to in an English lesson. You will learn to use a lot of new vocabulary and to use it powerfully. You will learn to recognize your true problem areas and how to develop good habits to correct them. You will learn how to stop wasting time with exercises that don't work and to focus on what will help you improve. I will help you realize your personal strengths and how to benefit from them the most. When you work with me towards success, you will gain the knowedge, skills, and confidence to build your dreams into reality.
Language is a performance art. You will learn by doing; by using the language. You will spend time reading, listening, speaking, and writing. You will make mistakes and I will help you will learn from your mistakes. You will gain confidence and your English will improve.
*Build a strong vocabulary - Primarily through reading and discussion.
*Reading - Improves vocabulary, grammar, and syntax and provides discussion material.
*Listening - There is no substitute for active listening practice.
*Speaking - You will do a lot of speaking, both in conversation and in presentations.
*Writing - You will do some writing as it is active language production and will help your speaking.
*Pronunciation and accent - We will systematically work on correcting and developing good pronunciation and accent.
My personal interests and hobbies are reading, writing, discussion & debate, science, philosophy, psychology, communications, education & self-improvement, life-coaching, public speaking, foreign languages, travel, cultures, camping, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, skating, ice-hockey, animals, cooking....
What interests you? Always have something to talk about and always be ready to actively listen!
Ask me about my discounts, packages, and free lessons! You can also earn money by referring students.
Whether you want to travel, get high test scores, or get that high-paying job, you will improve your English skills with me. You can succeed in English! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!
