About Alan

Hi! My name is Alan and I live in Texas.

My schedule includes tutoring and classes in communication skills, idioms, composition and grammar. I can add special classes if there is a demand for them.

I am very patient with a great sense of humor, and I like to develop a rapport with students to help my students relax and have fun learning English.

I have been teaching & tutoring ESL/EFL to students aged teen to adult for over twenty years. I have a Master of Arts (Una laureato in lettera/La maîtrise universitaire ès lettres ou maîtrise ès arts) in Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language (TESOL).

I enjoy teaching/tutoring ESL via Skype. I have taught students from all over the world, including those from such places as China, Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Taiwan, Peru, Columbia, Guatemala, and Mexico.

My love for foreign languages began when I was a teenager and listened to World Band Radio (Shortwave radio) and received foreign language material in German and Afrikaans. I still remember phrases from those lessons I took many years ago! :)

I speak some Spanish and I have also studied Russian, Greek, Latin, and French. Now I am beginning to learn Italian.
