Online English Teacher

Hi, my name is Joe. I'm a native English teacher from the United States. My interests are Online education and business and I also enjoy playing basketball during my free time.

I have a degree in business administration from Texas State University. I've been teaching English for 10 years and online since 2012. Since then I have had the pleasure to teach students from all over the world and learned a lot about their amazing culture and customs. I also have experience designing, creating and publishing online English courses

My classes are very dynamic and fun: During the lessons I focus on getting my students to speak and reach fluency by discussing real world topics such as traveling & culture, entertainment, world news, technology and any special interests that my students may have such as technical vocabulary in any field.
