I like learning about language and how people develop fluency in several languages, and I like learning about different cultures as well as studying the industries and professions in which my students work. After teaching English to students from Japan, Brazil, Russia, Spain, France, Germany, South Korea etc for many years, I have learned a lot about the histories and cultures of their countries, as well as the economic and business environments. It's been immensely interesting and has helped me to provide customized lessons for my students based on their specifics needs and work/life situations.

Perfectly crafted, fascinating and demanding lessons. Rance observes the weakest points and helps to fix them with his comprehensive explanations. Not a single mistake will go unnoticed. Expect thorough feedback from Rance. Thank you so much!

Rance has been very supportive in my journey to improve my English skills. The empathy he has with his students is amazing. I’m going through an important moment in my career that wouldn’t be possible go ahead without his support. I have no words to express my gratitude.

During the lesson, Rance corrected my grammatical errors and suggested appropriate words to use, but the whole conversation went like a chat between friends. Thank you, Rance, for a great lesson!

Rance is an amazing teacher! Every class with him is enjoyable, and he has been incredibly helpful in reinforcing my grammar and expanding my vocabulary. I can feel my daily speaking skills improving week by week, I can't thank him enough for that. I highly recommend taking lessons with Rance - you won't be disappointed! :)
