About Me

Hello! My name is Wesley! I'm from Chicago. I have been teaching for four years and I'm excited to meet you! My hobbies include music, movies, theatre, art, history, and learning about new languages and cultures. I currently speak French, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. I'm learning German and Russian.

I always try to keep my lessons fun and interesting; learning a language shouldn't be boring! Let me help you with your English! Along with my TEFL certificate and a Masters in English Linguistics, my teaching experience includes instructing all levels, IELTS and TOEFL test preparation, Business English, Advanced writing, Editing, helping students reach their college goals, and helping graduate students with their essays/theses/dissertations.

Please note that I am NOT a children's teacher. Also, if you wish to book your first lesson with me, please send some information about yourself and how I can help you with your English. I hope to meet you soon!
