About Me

Hi, I'm Larry. I have Bachelor's Degree in English, a Master's in Human Services and Coaching and I am also TEFL certified.

I am an author having published a collection of personal travel stories, "How I Became A Goat-Sitter In Ireland".

I live in California in the United States, but I am originally from the Chicago, Illinois area. I currently teach English online for a Taiwanese company to literally 40 or 50 or more students per week, and I love it! I am also an entrepreneur so Verbling supplies the perfect format for my lifestyle, and I am able to help with business writing as well.

Whatever your need or purpose for learning English, I am here to encourage you and share my knowledge in the best way possible. I always hope to make the learning experience engaging with some fun, too!

I have traveled the world and enjoy learning about cultures other than my own and experiencing what it's like to not know a language and how to communicate in a foreign country. I even self-published a collection of travel stories!

So whether it's speaking or writing English, I will do my best to help you achieve your goal!

I also self-published two books of quotes:
