About me

Hello! My name is Paul, I’ve been teaching English in Asia and Europe for 17 years and I currently teach at a university in China.  I’ve taught conversation, speaking practice, speech preparation, reading, writing, Business English, and many other kinds of classes.  Because of my experience and interest in language learning, I am a good listener and I can quickly evaluate a student’s needs and focus my lessons on your needs.  I am well read and interested in current events, so I can converse on a variety of subjects and topics. I have written 2 conversation books, a professional English and Business English book as well as dozens of other exercises and activities which i have used in my classes sucessfully in the past  I can help you achieve your goals in language learning, whatever they may be.
