Teaching since:

My name is Vijay and I'm an English Teacher living in San Francisco, California. I moved to the US when I was 14 years old from India and I did my high school and university here. I studied Business Administration with focus on Marketing and then worked for Macys.com for two years. Later on, I realized that travel was always a passion for me and I wanted to live in different countries to experience cultures.

I have lived in five countries and the goal is keep on continuing to see the world, meet wonderful people and learn about through English teaching. I enjoy talking multitudes of topics especially movies, travel, books, cultures and comics.

I hope to talk to you soon and get to know you better!

Vijay is a really good teacher! He has helped me a lot to improve more and more. He is passionate about what he does, so he is really clear when he teaches and he has lot of ideas for other ways of learning things if you don't understand. He knows all your strength and weaknesses and he knows how to work with these.

I worked with him in a summer camp this year and all the things that I can say about it are positive. He always gives it everything and tries to bring the best out of each student. Moreover, he's an extremely affable person which I think to be an important quality that a teacher should have.

Vijay is a GREAT teacher! He is passionate, he knows what is better to do to help students learna dn have fun while they are learing. He also know Indian language so he can show them some aspect of another culture. He is punctual and he understands if you have specific learning needs. Vijay loves travelling and he ''gives his heart'' to the people.

Vijay is the best teacher ever. He was really patient to teaching me on everything that I didn’t understand. He had good sense of humor, so it was fun during the class. We played some games in the classes which made me Improved more than when I was in other classes.
