About me



Today is a very good day for you because you have found the tutor you have been searching for to provide you with an education in Business English.

Why am I the International Business Engllsh tutor you have been searching to find?:

I am the tutor you have been seeking because I know that a local and/or International Business English teacher abroad must be experienced in globalization, business, education, foreign languages, foreign cultures, foreign political economies. Since 1996, I have operated businesses and taught in China, South Korea, Thailand.

I am highly qualified and I am extensively experienced in each every of the above respects. 

In other words, a young teacher who is recently an inexperienced university graduate is hardly qualified to teach anything, Business English especially and in particular.

You and I together can accomplish much because, while you will learn from me needed English conversation skills and other other aspects of English, you will learn mainly local and/or International Business English.

I have owned and operated business in the United States and abroad, here in East Asia. I know that businesses usually have a very focused aim as to what they want to accomplish.

You and I know that as a local and International Business English learner you are quite different from the typical language school student. You are often, though not always older than the average student, You can be more experienced and tired from a long day at work.

You and/or your parents have a definite idea of what you want to learn.  Also, sometimes, you are often required to take English classes if you want to progress in the family business or in a corporation where you may be a stranger. 

The best way for you and I to start is to first identify your individual needs and the needs of your employer, whether the employer may be your parents or a boss you don't know. After all, you are my client/customer who is paying me to help you succeed in Business English.

So i want to know about your business, what your business does, what you do or want to do in the business or corporation, the products and services the business or corporation provides. I want to know these important matters so I can include them in the lessons as much as possible.

Business people need to earn money while providing a need to the community, and while being efficient, professional, pleasant, friendly. So let's begin now before you and I lose any more precious time or money.
