Hello! I am James, I am from New York and have lived there my whole life. I love to travel around europe and go sight seeing. I like to run and go to the gym, but I also like netflix and hanging out at home. I am a bit of book worm and love novel experiences. In my spare time I am usually studying something online because I like to learn different things, I am a person with many passions, and my greatest passion is teaching English.
Me as a Teacher
I am a thoroughly trained teacher with many certifications. I know how to help my students reach their goals and I have an organized and clear structure to help you.
I believe the student is the center of the classroom, not me. This means I will teach you the way you want to be taught. I am flexible in my approach and use a variety of resources and activity types. I do prefer the skills based approach which means I believe that practicing grammar is best done in simulated situations.
In addition, I also teach IELTS and pronunciation and am certified to teach both of these.
My lessons & teaching style
I am a well organized and structured teacher who is patient and dedicated. All my lessons are customized specifically for you and will help you use engish in the situations that you are most likely to use it.
I also have different style lessons for IELTS writing. I have in-depth lessons to get you familiar with the test and develop the skills needed to achieve a high band score.
