โฃ
I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional methods, which is usually what we see out there…โฃ
This idea of learning a language through grammar, and thinking that you will reach fluency like that, just NEVER made much sense to me.โฃ
What I actually believe, is immersing yourself in a language and, before you ask me, you DON’T need to live in an English-speaking country to do that. I can show you EXACTLY how to do that from the comfort of your own place.โฃ
And the best thing is that, as your English Coach, I will support you through your entire fluency journey.โฃ
โฃ
We’ll have live sessions every week but we’ll also be in constant touch because I believe that this is the best way for you to become fluent and acquire any language.โฃ

The truth is that most people choose the wrong methods to learn. โฃ

Ty is awesome. Only had 2 lessons with him so far and I’m making a lot of improvements already!

I can't even believe when I see how far I've gotten. I remember my first session when I was shy because I had a thick Russian accent and the first thing I complained with Ty was that the first everyone asked when they talked to me was "Where are you from?" But I trusted him and I did all the crazy exercises and everything he asked me. Well, it worked! And all I can say is that I couldn't be happier with my result!

When Ty told me I didn’t need to learn grammar to become fluent I laughed out loud, literally. But he showed me a whole new world where English is actually fun and easy! I became fluent in no time! Ty is incredible!! Thank you buddy!!

Ty rocks!!! I’ve had taken classes before with a lot of teachers but I could never see myself becoming comfortable to speak with a native English speaker. After having classes with Ty, he showed everything in a very simple way. Now I’m able to talk to anyone without feeling concerned.

Ty is awesome!!!! I could never imagine that one day I would sound like I do today! I remember that I've always felt really bad about my accent and, because of that, I was always shy to talk to other people because they would always ask me "Oh, Where are you from?" I thought that losing my accent was something impossible, but now, I recently hear from people "Are you from the US?", and that just makes me soooo happy!! I can't thank Ty enough for completely changing my life!

Best Ever! Ty got me from being super shy to say anything to super confident. One of the best things is that he prepares everything specifically for you! His method is different from other methods that I've seen out there but much more effective! I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to learn from him!
