About Me

Hi English students! My name is Charles and I´m an English teacher from Washington, D.C. in the US. I´ve been teaching English for three years. In the past year alone, I gave over 1,000 hours of private, individual English classes. Last year, I completed a 120-hour TESOL certificate to round out my qualifications. I specialize in Business English and studied Economics in college.

My focus as an English teacher is improving the student´s communication. That means focusing on all four aspects of communication: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I´ve used a wide variety of textbooks and materials, but my favorite method is having directed, realistic conversations. For example, if you´re learning the simple past, we would practice talking about the first time or last time you did a specific activity, eg. "When was the last time you went swimming?" This method helps you practice communicating the same way that native speakers communicate in the real world.
