About Me

Hello Learners! My name is Patrick Timmes. I'm a TEFL-Certified English teacher with a Masters degree in Teaching from Rhode Island School of Design (I'm also a painter:)). My usual approach to teaching English is to talk with the student and tailor the material as much as I can to that particular student. If unable to do that, I just do my best to keep the lesson fun. Learning English doesn't have to be (and shouldn't be) deadly dull and boring. There is a wealth of information and entertainment just waiting to be enjoyed once that door is unlocked. Why treat learning English as a chore when it can add so much pleasure to one's life?! Thank you for taking the time to read my bio and I hope to be speaking (English) with you soon! --Patrick
