About Me

Hi, I'm Gregory from New York City. I have 7 years of full-time experience teaching English and earned a Masters degree in TESOL. I'm a native English speaker and have taught students of all ages, including adults, college students, and high school students. I've also held a NY Teacher's License and a NY Registered Business School Teacher's Certificate.

I know that learning a new language can be difficult; in fact, I've been a language learner myself! I earned a minor in Spanish while in college and also took two years of Koine Greek and a semester of French. I've studied abroad in Spain for a summer and have spent over a year living the Dominican Republic. That's why I always try to create a safe, positive environment for my students to learn, take risks, and have fun.

Fun is exactly what you'll have when you take my classes! I'm outgoing and funny and like using popular themes and topics when teaching. If you want to improve your English fluency and sharpen your language skills, then sign up for one of my classes and I'll see you soon!
