My name is Colin, and I’m a TESOL certified English teacher with 10 years of experience, including 10 years teaching adults, four years teaching children, and a couple years working as an publishing editor at a local university.
I have helped hundreds of students with their goals of improving fluency, grammar, pronunciation, business English, travel English, test taking skills, and much more.
Do you need to speak better English for work? Do you need to speak to international clients and be understood in meetings in English? Do you need to pass the IELTS/TOEFL? Do you simply want to Travel? Or do you just want a place to have conversation in English while also learning new things along the way? I’m a great conversationalist.
These are the skills I have experience in, and I specialize in conversational English. In my conversational English lessons, I use a specific process to help you measurably improve daily.
Why not book a trial lesson with me today? You have nothing to lose. I look forward to seeing you in the classroom : )
