I'm Ben, a Business English teacher from Chicago with a TEFL certificate. I´m not your typical classroom teacher.

If you are interested in improving your language skills, please contact me. I look forward to talking with you about your goals and how I can help you achieve them. New students are welcome.

Ben helped prep for a job interview and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was nervous at the beginning but Ben created a learning environment where I was comfortably talking and practicing most of the time. By the end of the lesson, I naturally felt confident and prepared for this job interview. I’m amazed by the noticeable improvement within one lesson. I highly recommend taking lessons with Ben!

Ben truly helped me to boost my score, I took IELTS test on December 2022 and didn't pass, needed a 7 on the speaking section and got a 6, started classes with Ben at the beginning of February, took my test at the end of March and got the 7 I needed so badly. The way he gives the class helps you to improve your spoken English. He is always correcting your pronunciation and teaching you new vocabulary. We also review a newspaper article per class that helps to strengthen your reading and listening skills. Therefore, you will learn English one way or another. I am so happy and grateful.

Real World English lessons with Ben is the real deal for polishing my communication skills. Lessons are tailored to my needs, fun, insightful and very enjoyable. Ben is a master conversationalist and has a unique way of teaching (or I’d say coaching) - from pronunciation to grammar, he corrects it all while letting the conversation flow naturally. Ben, thank you, muito obrigada. Looking forward to our next lessons.
