Hello! If you want to travel to America, you have to deal with Americans, you have to speak English. What makes me a great English teacher? Many things. But lets start with the basics. I have no regional accent. What that means is no American person can ever hear me speak English and determine where I am from. You want to learn from an American English Language coach that has no accent. People from the south, New York City, Minnesota and other regions of the country can have very pronounced accents.

My goal as a teacher is for people to not know that you are a non native English speaker. This means that you will have learned how to create all of the sounds that the English language produces.

DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS!

You are just as smart and capable as they are. I have high expectations of your potential as an English speaker. You should also have high expectations of yourself. I have high expectations of myself as a teacher. I am the best teacher on here.

I have all of the TEFL/TEYL certifications and have experience teaching English online. Let me coach you in the art of speaking American English!

About Ronald F.

Hello. What's up? How are you doing? Hi. Hey. What's going on? Those are all various American English greetings. My name is Ronald. My nickname is Ronnie, Ron or Renaldo for my Spanish speaking students :) . I was born in Washington DC. The capitol of the United States. That means I have a neutral American accent. You want your English teacher to have a neutral American accent.

Why?

Because people without accents are more easily understood than people with accents. I am a lifelong student of languages. I taught myself fluent Spanish using a cell phone application. I am currently using that same app to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. It will probably take me 2 years to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. How did I become fluent in Spanish and soon to be Arabic?

The first step in learning any language is listening. If you cannot hear the sounds being made then you will never be able to speak any language. So my primary tool is tuning your ear to American English. I will give you homework assignments that require you to listen to certain sounds and words.

We will also always focus on subjects that YOU are interested in talking about. History, politics, science, current affairs, geography, food, speeches, journalism, etc. My class is great for anyone interested in working with English speakers. aupairs, pilots, doctors, nurses, politicians, students and attorneys can all benefit from my masterful ability to teach people how to understand and communicate in American English!

What are you waiting for? Let's start today!

I found Ronald's profile and felt that this man could give me as much as he only could! I was definitely right. So long one month past, my pronunciation had changed completely. It was noticed by everyone, even my boss rose the salary. It became so American:) Even Cali guys can't guess where I'm from (Russia, indeed)!
Ron, thanks for all these brilliant lessons, enormous amount of fabulous words and outstanding knowledge that you've shared. I'm so happy to be taught by you!
No doubts, You are a great teacher!
