About Me

September 2021 update! This is the last month of Summer here in Chicago. Young people have returned to schools and universities for the first time since the start of the pandemic. I encourage you to participate in the spirit of learning! This time of year is a perfect one for working together towards the goal of raising your English language proficiency. Let's make 2021 the year when your fluency hits the next level.

My name is Donald. I have a Master's Degree in English and have taught English Language and Literature for over ten years to both adults and teenagers.

Each of my students has access to two important resources in addition to personal lessons: 1) an online document filled with lesson notes, and 2) a YouTube channel filled with videos that include language definitions and cultural insights.

English is a beautiful language. It is also, at times, frustratingly complex. I look forward to helping you appreciate its beauty while mastering its complexity.

Take a look at the introductory video here, and thank you for considering me as a partner in your English-language journey!
