About Me

About me
My name is Chris. I'm a native English speaker from Nashville, Tennessee. I've always been interested in learning about other cultures and I love meeting people from all over the world. I have more than 2 years of experience teaching all levels of English in every situation you can imagine. A few of my hobbies include traveling, learning about other languages, and making YouTube videos for my students.

My mission
I want to help my students feel more confident speaking English. Speaking a new language can be scary and frustrating. I'm here to make you feel comfortable as we work together to improve your skills.

My focus
Grammar, pronunciation, fluency, phrasal verbs, idioms, TOEFL, IELTS, academic writing, and interview preparation are just a few things that we can focus on in our classes. If you have specific goals and preferences, please let me know.

My resources
Depending on your needs, I have a whole collection of books, websites, podcasts, applications, videos, and exercises that we can use to practice the new topics we discuss.

What I need from you
In order to have a fun and productive class, you must have the following:
1. an internet connection good enough for video calls
2. a quiet space
3. properly functioning audio
4. a positive attitude for learning!
