ESL Bible Class
Hi, I'm Gregory from New York City. I'm here to help you improve your English. I'm a native English speaker and have 5 years of full-time experience teaching English. I also have a Masters degree in TESOL from City College of New York and held a New York State Teacher's License and a New York State Registered Business School Teacher's Certificate. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Theology from Oral Roberts University, located in Tulsa, OK.
I know that learning a new language can be difficult; in fact, I've been a language learner myself! I earned a minor in Spanish while in college and also took two years of Koine Greek and a semseter of French. I've studied abroad in Spain for a summer and have spent over a year living the Dominican Republic. That's why I always try to create a safe, positive environment for my students to learn, take risks, and have fun.
Fun is exactly what you'll have when you take my classes! I'm outgoing and funny and like using popular themes and topics when teaching such as American culture, entertainment, current events, and literature. If you want to improve your English fluency and learn more about one of your favorite topics, then sign up for one of my classes and I'll see you soon!
