About me


I'm John and an American native English tutor here on Verbalplanet who believes that good English skills have to power to transform people's learning, careers and lives in general.

Thank you for taking the time to let me tell you about how I can help you improve your English language program.

If you look at my profile, you'll only see a few lessons listed. However, I've actually taught more than 3000 online lessons with several tutoring companies. I also run my own company, which includes an online English school and several websites related to English, business, professional and creative education.

In addition to 3 years of teaching online, I have 13 years of full time offline professional English teaching experience, mostly at the college and university level. I hold a CELTA certification from the University of Cambridge. This is the most widely recognized English teaching qualification in the world. My education also includes a Bachelor of General Studies and History and a Masters in Applied Linguistics. ALL of my English tutoring experience is international. On top of that, I have a very deep and broad work and business background.

My extensive education, knowledge and life experience, including worldwide work and travel (I've spent almost half of my life living, working and traveling outside the United States) helps me connect with students from all kinds of countries, backgrounds and professions. Teaching English allows me to help, bond and learn with people from all over the world.

I'm now focusing on building my Verbalplanet tutoring network and would love to offer you a free trial to discuss how I can help you improve your English skills in any of the following areas: conversation, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary building, reading, listening, business, writing, CV/resume design, job interview preparation, presentations and more. I can design a customized study program that will improve your fluency, accuracy and confidence--and be a lot of fun.

My main goal is to deliver interesting, realistic and conversation-based lessons while providing students with motivating language practice and advanced feedback of their grammar, pronunciation and word usage. I'll challenge you with practical and effective online lessons while also advising you as to the best study tasks to do before and after our lessons, so that you'll get the maximum benefit from our time together.

Why not start this learning adventure with a trial lesson so we can begin setting up a study program to help you reach your English learning goals.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Thank you very much for your time.
