My name is Guy, and I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to students and business professionals for 7+ years.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and a Master's degree in Linguistics. I have taught English to top executives at Yahoo!,
Rakuten, Kobo, Nikkei, DMM, NTT Corp., Yamada-Denki, and more.
As an experienced teacher, I understand how students learn and retain new information.
What's the secret?
The truth is, there isn't any secret. Learning English is very difficult. However, there are two things you must do:
1. Study English every day (listen, speak, read, and write).
Constant exposure is an absolute MUST when it comes to acquiring a new language. I work with each student to create a catered learning program to improve all 4 primary language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
2. Write every day!
The second ‘secret’ to learning a new language is to write—every day. All of my students have notebooks, and they all write daily. It's a simple method, but it works. During our first meeting together, we will discuss how to use writing exercises to improve other areas, such as listening, speaking, reading, and pronunciation.
My students include high school, undergraduate, and graduate students; young children; and adult speakers of all levels.
Whatever your language needs, I have the tools and tactics you need to improve your English and become more fluent.
I also teach drums and acoustic guitar to Beginner and Intermediate students at my home studio in Sebastian, FL.

The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) was founded in 1924 to advance the scientific study of language. LSA plays a critical role in supporting and disseminating linguistic scholarship both to professional linguists and to the general public.
Applied Linguistics is an interdisciplinary field of inquiry that addresses a broad range of language-related issues in order to understand their roles in the lives of individuals and conditions in society. It draws on a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches from various disciplines–from the humanities to the social and natural sciences–as it develops its own knowledge-base about language, its users and uses, and their underlying social and material conditions.+ Read More
Teacher Guy taught me English when I first came to the U.S. back in 2014. I was working for a financial company at the time, and my English was so bad that I almost never spoke to my coworkers. What Teacher Guy did for me was deconstruct the language learning process and show me how to learn the English language from the "top down" as a native speaker would. At our first meeting, Teacher Guy explained that this is the way children learn their language. Babies and young children are not taught grammar rules, but they learn grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation in the context. And guess what! It worked for me! By the end of that year, I was so comfortable in my "new skin" that I began speaking during meetings at work and I made friends with many native speakers all thanks to Teacher Guy's lessons. I think Teacher Guy uses a special and highly effective teaching method that combines natural conversation with reading and speaking practice. Teacher Guy gave me a writing assignment every week and it was always enjoyable. He used the writing assignment to measure my progress and teach me better ways to make some expressions. Teacher Guy has an impressive ability to hear pronunciation mistakes and always corrected me in a gentle way. He would say "Can you repeat that again?" not "You said that phrase incorrectly." I would highly recommend Teacher Guy's lessons if you are serious about learning English and becoming a more fluent English speaker.+ Read More
