Hey! My name is Jeremy, and I am a language enthusiast and all-around lover of culture and travel. Through my experiences on mission trips to Ireland, India, Zimbabwe, Mongolia, and Cambodia, I have had the opportunity to challenge my people and language skills, while gaining an understanding for new cultures and lands. These trips developed my interest in learning new languages and have inspired my current aspirations to live abroad. Right now, I am working on conquering (okay, maybe not that dramatic) my first foreign language of Swedish, with an ever-growing list of languages I want to learn next looming ahead.
Me as a Teacher
I want to support you in your language goals at whatever level you may be, mainly through conversation practice to develop listening and speaking skills. I am TEFL certified and understand the importance of flexibility and attention to each individual student's needs. I believe in language immersion- in other words, spending lots of time interacting with a language- and having fun doing it. As a language learner myself, I don't think language learning needs to be stressful, intimidating, or boring. We learn best through activities that are memorable, so I want to help you practice in a natural, enjoyable way that works for you. Don't be afraid to make mistakes (they help us learn too)!!
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons will be relaxed and responsive- meaning you should feel comfortable to speak without fear of judgement and I will give you lots of constructive feedback on how you can improve. I know how it feels to speak a language for the first (or the hundredth) time, and it's important that you feel you have room to grow, make mistakes, and be challenged. My main focus in lessons is conversation and "everyday" language- such as phrases/phrasal verbs, idioms, and expressions in English. We can practice pronunciation, grammar, and introduce new vocabulary casually throughout the conversation. No matter your level, you can start expressing yourself in English today! I look forward to seeing you!

Jeremy is the most suitable teacher for me, and he is probably the best! He's polite and always points out the grammar mistakes I made, so his lessons are extremely helpful!
