Communicating effectively in English goes far beyond grammatically correct sentences and although technical aspects of the language will form the core of my lessons, you will walk away with skills you need to fully express yourself in the real world. Throughout each lesson, I will incorporate knowledge on body language, word choice, word emphasis, when to raise or lower the voice, when to use certain phraseology over another, and possible scenarios you may find yourself in so you are able to convey exactly what you intend. If you have specific interest in the business side of English and would like me to include knowledge on topics such as how to shake a hand or craft a well-written resume, I would be more than happy to cater my lessons in that direction. Overall, my lessons will be directed towards your individual needs and goals. I will adjust my teaching style to accommodate your topical interests as well as your learning style. I will aim to be fun, lighthearted, focused, energetic, kind, and uplifting in every lesson. My ultimate goal is to create a positive learning environment where you can unlock your potential. I look forward to helping you to achieve your English language goals!

About Jacob B.

Although I am TEFL/TESOL certified and this will help me greatly in teaching you the mechanics of the language, I believe my most valuable contribution to the teaching table will be my life experience. I have spent time all over the world in rural and urban areas and have interacted with people from almost everywhere. In all of these scenarios, English has played a role, and I have learned quite a lot about how it is used and learned by different types of personalities and cultures. My University education in Business and Anthropology has helped me to be aware of how language is utilized by different markets, cultures, and in human interactions of all kinds. In every situation I find myself in, I am either using English or teaching it. I have learned through hands-on experience that each individual will need to tackle the language in a way that makes sense to them. Of course I will meet your situation with an open mind, but I hope that my prior knowledge can help us figure out the best method for you as quickly as we can. Overall, I will strive to bring a positive attitude and a patient personality to all my lessons.
