Hello! John here, for 10 years I’ve taught students how to improve their language skills. I have been a professional English lecturer in Korea, Singapore and now Japan.
I love language and am currently preparing for a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology. It is often said, the best way to understand your students is to be a student yourself!
Every lesson is different, as are the needs of every student. What remains constant are:
Thank you for perusing my profile! I'm looking forward to working with you and wishing you all the best in your learning goals!
- Focus on student talking time -- I keep you "on your toes" with provocative questions and pertinent topics; not wasting your time with lengthy explanations.

- Detailed and professional Skype feedback notes including clear English goals - Small talk - Pronunciation notes - Vocabulary notes - Lesson reviews - Next lesson tips so that you can review our lessons anytime on your Skype account.
