Hi, I am James, a native English speaker from the UK with an in-depth knowledge of Russian and French grammar. Since earning my MA last year, I have been teaching Business English in Frankfurt (Germany), while continuing to provide online tuition for Chinese elementary and high school students.
The majority of my Business English students work in the banking industry and, consequently, this has been the focus of many of my courses. However, I am also more than capable of teaching English for Sales and Marketing, having had many private clients working in these fields.
In addition to teaching adult students of a very high level (C1/2) such as those mentioned above, I am also more than capable of teaching absolute beginners and young children. Indeed, for the past year or so, I have been tutoring Chinese schoolchildren over Skype in my capacity as a virtual tutor.
This hands-on knowledge of internet-based EFL instruction and the online tutoring makes me the ideal choice for your learning needs. Not only do I boast confidence using video conferencing software for the purposes of language instruction, I have also learnt how to help students maximise their time with me through the use of screen-sharing functions and other interactive features that enhance learning potential.
In short, I am committed and hard-working, always pushing my students to achieve their potential. I was initiated into teaching as early as high school (where I served as a classics mentor for two years) tutoring younger boys in Latin and Ancient Greek. Even then, I was sure that I wanted to use my linguistic knowledge to help others and transmit some of my own passion for language to them!
