Me as a Teacher
I've been teaching Business English for over 20 years in South Korea, at major corporations within Germany, at the University of Pittsburgh and online. I have a Masters Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.
My lessons & teaching style
I try to do a mix of activities in each lesson, focusing on different skills. So I will usually do one thing on grammar, one thing on vocabulary, and one or two things on a particular business skill like meetings, e-mails, presenting, telephoning, negotiations, small talk, etc. I also talk to you about your work week so I can give you feedback on your sentence structure and pronunciation, and simply to give you some speaking time.

I really like the course of pronunciations and intonation. Brad explained the nuance between the pronunciation of English and other language s crystal clear. I feel that I have lots of information to digest after his course. I have no hesitation to book another one.

I am always expected all session with Brad with anticipation and excitement. But reality, as a rule, exceeds my expectations!!
Perfect teaching with the good special materials, with deep focus on the most difficult and sometimes strange (untypical) rules in English. With such talented teacher you are becoming interested not only in process of studying, but you are falling gradually in love with English as a cultural aspect.

I took a lesson with Brad to prepare for a presentation at my company. Brad provided me with all the necessary information that I needed. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. He gave me unique tips and advice on what I should include in my presentation. This was a great experience.
