About Professor B

I became a Professor at the University of Sussex, England, in 1982. I make English as comfortable as old shoes, any way you need and want, I teach with passion, I love working with students. I began teaching in my church (Irish Catholic) to little children. I realized that learning is one of the greatest joys of living; I have been teaching ever since. Students of every country, culture and religion; rich and poor, young and old, every student benefited. There are no bad students, only bad teachers.

Now the Internet has come; technologies to help us all communicate. In my opinion the barrier of language can be overcome today and I am here to help you.
