About Me

 

 

  

Originally from the US, I have been helping non-native English users improve their speaking and writing skills for 25+ years. Currently, I work as an English teacher, English coach, and copywriter/editor.

 

Having lived in and/or traveled in 50+ countries, I bring plenty of life experiences to my work.

 

The following degrees and certifications add to those experiences:

● English Teacher & ESL Teacher Certification Master’s Degree, Educational and Counselling Psychology

● Bachelor's Degree, English

● Coaching Certification (ICF) ​

 

I firmly believe in the power of building positive personal relationships. Flexibility, trust, and encouragement are essential as we work together to help you succeed.

Teacher v. Coach

What’s the difference between an English teacher and an English coach?

 

An English teacher follows a prescribed curriculum. The teacher leads and tells the student what must be learned in order to pass courses successfully.

 

An English coach follows the student’s lead. The coach works with the student to set goals, encouraging and supporting the student while pursuing those goals.

 

Whether as a teacher or coach, my English sessions go beyond bookwork, grammar, and vocabulary. Professional matters, personal topics, life issues, and cultural experiences are also addressed.

 

In-person or online sessions can be:

  • conversational English

  • language development targeted to your personal/professional needs

  • course book work according to your language level

  • national and international English exam preparation

Dan is a real educator. He has so much passion not only for his students, but for the simple acts of teaching and learning. Years after high school, I still think of him as my mentor. They say that those who can’t do, teach. But Dan can do it all.
