About Me

My name is Gary, and I'm an established English teacher. My goal is to improve my students' fluency, pronunciation and confidence through intensive training of reading and speaking skills. Your improvisational skills will be developed as well through conversation about focused topics or general topics, if you wish. Grammar is explained and practiced when it is necessary. I also do job or university interview preparation and writing corrections. My lessons are challenging, fun, and productive, but full of praise for all your hard work.

For more advanced students, I don't want you to be ashamed of who you are and where you come from. I will make sure that your pronunciation is clear in my lessons. Keep in mind, if your pronunciation is clear enough for you to be understood without difficulty, that's perfect. You do not have to sound exactly like a native speaker to be considered good at English.

I am highly experienced teaching children ages 8-14, as a contractor, for a world renowned company. See the resume section below for more details. You can also find my schedule and availability there too, and if you have any questions, please message me.

Please remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day." Translation: Great achievements take time to accomplish.

Sincerely,
Gary M.

About me: I live in Florida and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, traveling, and reading. I love listening to music and learning about other cultures. I have a standard American accent, and I'm a dual citizen of the USA and the UK (my mother immigrated to the USA from England).

I have lived in England, Germany, and Spain, and I am learning German now on Verbling.
