- Aug 6, 2018 Schedule Change - Hello Everyone,I wanted to let all of you know that I have changed my schedule slightly, so I will ...
My name is Brian and welcome to my CafeTalk profile. How can I help you? Are you looking for someone fun and interesting to practice English with? Would you like to practice English using something you love like music, health or maybe something more academic like politics or western philosophy? If you said yes, awesome! Let's get started!
My name is Brian Rinaldi and I am interested in learning everything! I love languages and I believe every language is unique and gives a different perspective on life. Language gives us the ability to express our deepest feelings, desires, passions and dreams. I want to help you be able to voice yourself in English and become a proficient English speaker. This is why I teach here on CafeTalk, so I can help others enjoy learning English.
My Teaching Style:
Every lesson that you request is created just for you, and I would like to learn about you and get to know you during our lessons together.
Your learning style, personality, interests, goals, and experiences are all information I use to give you the best lesson I can.
I focus on helping you achieve your goals. My lessons are speaking and listening based, and that is what we will aim to improve in every lesson.
I specialize in teaching pronunciation, vocabulary, natural speech and academic speech.
My Teaching Experience:
I have taught English for almost 4 years. I began as a volunteer English teacher in Thailand and since then I have fallen in love with teaching English.
I have taught in private schools, in language schools and have actually lived with a Thai family as their private family tutor. I also started a language program in Thailand called "I Speak." Every experience has been amazing, and they have all helped me improve as an English teacher.
I am currently a private English tutor in Thailand, a corporate business English teacher who teaches business language and conversation, and I teach here on CafeTalk :).
I am currently working on my major in English from Ramkamhaeng University in Thailand.
All of my subjects are in the Thai language, so I have extensive knowledge in learning a foreign language.
I am also currently working on obtaining my TEFL certification and my TKT from Cambridge English.
I also have teaching certificates from various online teaching courses.
My Background and Interests:
I was born in Seattle, Washington in the Northwest of the U.S, but grew up in a small town. I love nature, outdoor activities, learning new things, health, spirituality, philosophy, literature, language and writing.
Hobbies I do are archery, sports (baseball, basketball), rock climbing, singing, guitar, yoga, fitness, gardening, reading, writing and travel.
Where to start with me:
Request my "Welcome Counseling" lesson to meet me and see if I am the tutor you are looking for. If you are interested in any of my featured lessons then you can request a lesson now!Let's learn together! See you soon and happy learning :).

***minejapan今日もいつものようにとても中身が濃い、パーフェクトなレッスンでした！ブライアン先生と今日も引き続きタイのことについて話がしたいとリクエストしました。ブライアン先生が事前に、タイの文化について知っておくべき１１のことを書いた英語のエッセイのリンクを送ってくださいました。それを事前に私が読んだ上でレッスンに臨みました。実際につい最近一週間ほどの出張で私がタイに滞在して実際に自分で目で見て感じたタイとエッセイに書かれたタイの文化についての文章から、私が感じたこと（例えば日本の仏教とタイの仏教の違い、日本とタイの習慣や考え方として似ているところと異なるところなど）を話したり、エッセイの中の単語でわかりにくかった単語を解説していただいたりしながら、あっという間の50分でした。ブライアン先生のタイへの思いもお聞きすることが出来ました。思慮深く、落ち着いた雰囲気のブライアン先生と会話をしながら、ボキャブラリーも自然に増やすことが出来て、今回も充実感のあるレッスンで大満足でした。次回のレッスンも楽しみです！Free Talk with Brian - 50 min 50 1,800Aug 12, 2018
