« Jim‘s been teaching English for about three years. He’s always told me how much he enjoys helping people and talking with students from China and Japan. Now that he’s going independent I think a lot more people will enjoy his enthusiasm and creativity. I’ve known him almost 40 years since we met at UC Berkeley, and he’s always been extremely bright and dedicated. »

Jim‘s been teaching English for about three years. He’s always told me how much he enjoys helping people and talking with students from China and Japan. Now that he’s going independent I think a lot more people will enjoy his enthusiasm and creativity. I’ve known him almost 40 years since we met at UC Berkeley, and he’s always been extremely bright and dedicated.

Jim's a good guy who I have known for almost 30 years. He has successfully taught ESL online to adults previously. He has a variety of experience working at Disney and other companies. He is creative and imaginative with a good sense of humor.

Jim is meticulous in nearly every way which makes him really good at teaching. He is college educated and cultured. Jim goes out of his way to be helpful. I have known him for many years now, and he has consistently spent his time creating games which require an advanced command of the English language, and also teaching English online.
