My name is Raymond; I’m a TEFL certified native English speaker from Kentucky, which is the birthplace of corvettes, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), and home of the Kentucky Derby in the United States of America!
I have been teaching English professionally to all ages and learning styles for the last 4 years online and in person. I found my passion for culture and language exchange in high school as a mentor for the ESL students. In college I worked at the International Center of Kentucky helping with the resettlement of refugees, after school programs, and English courses. I have experience teaching conversational English, business English, and helping people with interview skills and preparing for exams.
I have lived and taught English in the USA, Croatia, Cambodia, and now I’m currently living in Turkey. I have traveled to 17 countries, and 48 out of the 50 states in the USA.
I have a passion for helping others. I really enjoy trying new foods, traveling, being outdoors, cooking, language exchange, anything adventurous, and listening to music.
In my sessions I like to create a fun, safe, and inviting environment where you will be comfortable and free to talk about anything and everything. I am a patient, fun, and open minded individual! I look forward to helping you improve your English speaking skills! See you all in the next session!
