Hello! My name is Chris Johnson. I'm an American, 57 years old and have been married to my wife, Debbie, for 35 years. I have two daughters and two grandchildren and all of us live in the state of North Carolina in the southeastern United States.
I have a Master's Degree and Certification in TESL. I also have extensive English teaching experiences in formal classrooms, private one-on-one tutoring and online as well. I currently tutor students all over the world using a webcam. I'm passionate that learning should not be boring. Creativity and interactive learning experiences for all age groups is what I strive to incorporate into my lessons.
While I currently reside in the USA, I lived in Europe (Budapest, Hungary) for 18 years (1995-2012) and have traveled extensively in Eastern Europe for the past 23 years. Working with a non-profit US organization, I’ve helped organize and teach summer intensive and year-round follow-up English courses in Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Serbia and Bosnia. Course participants have ranged in age from children to senior citizens.
I would appreciate the opportunity to help you improve your conversational English skills while thoroughly enjoying the process. Since I've gone through the challenge of learning a foreign language myself (Hungarian), I can empathize with those trying to reach their fluency goals and the challenges involved in language learning. I have the patience and skill it takes to help you remain encouraged to keep on trying even when the progress slower than you desire.
So, let's get started today on your journey toward fluency in English!
