I was first drawn to English language instruction in 2006 when I moved to Japan from America, not as part of a grand design for my life but in pursuit of a new experience. I discovered that I loved the personal connection that teaching allows, as well as the theoretical aspects behind learning and lesson design. Since that time, I have spent over three years working as a language and cultural trainer, for companies such as Toyota Motors and Mitsubishi Electric, as well as seven years designing and implementing English high school curricula for private organizations in Istanbul, Turkey. I have worked with students from A1 to C1, helping them build skills for the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, and success in international English language settings, both in universities and offices. I relocated to Berlin in August 2017 with my wife and we love it. I am currently working freelance as an instructor and I am always looking for new opportunities for collaboration, learning new things, or helping others to meet their own goals.
