About Daniel B

I am a native speaker of English who was born and raised in the New York City area. I also have lived and worked throughout Russian-speaking Eurasia. I have an undergraduate degree from The College of Wooster and graduated with honors.

I have taught English and writing in the US and abroad. While serving as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan, I received professional training in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and taught both high school students and adults. I also have taught courses for adult education classes with a focus on helping English language learners improve skills necessary for living and working in the USA.

In addition to teaching experience, I have worked in various positions for several non-profit organizations in the field of education and international exchange. I also have training and professional experience as a paralegal.

My teaching philosophy is student centered and focused on your goals. From the first lesson, we will focus on your learning goals, and we will make a plan to help you reach these goals. I try to make each lesson interesting, enjoyable and productive.

I also offer help with writing, editing and basic translation (Russian to English).

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me, and good luck with your efforts to learn English!

Я понимаю русский, поэтому не стесняйтесь задавать мне вопросы, которые у вас есть на русском языке. Также, пожалуйста , обратите внимание, что я теперь только предлагаю уроки для “Pre-Intermediate” до “advanced” студентов.
