Hello. My name is Vinny. I have 5+ years of teaching experience with both children and adults, groups and individuals, in classroom settings as well as online tutoring. I have a Bachelor's degree and TEFL certification.
I have taught English to children and adults for over 5 years in Thailand, South Korea, Japan, and online. I am also a writer, researcher and web developer. I run my own online English tutoring website, which I will give you full access to when you start your lessons. On my website you can find lots of useful information, articles, study tips, and flashcards to help you learn English faster.
My Study methods
I will teach you to learn English at your MAXIMUM speed. I will support your learning both during and after the lesson. You get full support from my the tutorials on my website and a digital flashcard system.
All my methods are based on the study-habits of polyglots, people who can speak many languages fluently. YOU CAN LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH LIKE A NATIVE SPEAKER IN LESS THAN 3 YEARS.
My method of studying English is very fun! You will learn from English movies, TV shows, videos on the internet and comics! You will never get bored studying English with me.
Why I love teaching
I enjoy teaching because I love to learn. I read LOTS of books. I know about many things. I love to learn from other people and share my skills.
