I’m an American businessman, educator, teacher and trainer that’s lived in China and SE Asia for over 15 years. Living in Asia for that many years and being able to understand cultural differences allows me to teach my students from an insiders prospective as I understand what real English speaking and communicating is. I also am fluent in Chinese so I know the ups and downs of learning a second language. At this stage of my life I enjoy helping students reach their goals whether it’s a businessperson involved with a multinational company or a student looking for a 7.5 in IELTS. I do enjoy going to the beach, riding motorcycles, snowboarding and hanging out with friends.

Very cool teacher and class! He might be sometimes brutally honest, but it definitely gives you an extra push to get out of your comfort zone tand take your English to the next level. Jonathan is also very funny and he cracked me up many times during our class. Definitely a positive experience and I'm looking forward to more classes with him!

A big shout out to Jonathan, the best teacher in the world. Just got back my ielts result and got an overall 8 and 7 in speaking. Wouldn't get this score on the first try without the help from Jonathan. Thank you so much!
