About me

I am from a literary family, and my grandfather was the Poet Laureate of my home country, New Zealand. I grew up in a small island community, but have lived in Auckland for over two decades. I speak English and Te Reo Maori, which is the indigenous language of New Zealand. I love cinema, television, fine art and all kinds of storytelling. I do love to watch the All Blacks and the Super Rugby Competition! I also practice Mau Rakau—which is traditional Maori weaponry. I have written for television and worked in the music industry in New Zealand.

About me

I lived in Japan for the past 12 years and only just moved back to Australia to be with family. I taught at Elementary School,  Junior High School and High School, as well as at Eikawas while I lived in Japan. I now live in Perth, Western Australia with my wife and son. It's very different here from Japan. I'm afraid I've become to accustomed to Japanese life. I speak English and conversational Japanese. When I have a chance, I enjoy watching movies, chatting with friends, drawing and working out at the gym.

About me

I was born and raised in America and I am currently living in Greece. I prefer to tailor my lessons depending on the student's needs and I also find teaching people from various cultural backgrounds fascinating. Apart from teaching, I am in business myself and I understand my client's needs for effective communication. On an everyday basis, I operate a small hotel unit, interact with customers, negotiate with local providers and investigate new areas for growth. In all my interactions I cooperate with people nationally as well as internationally and I realize the necessity to declare my position in a culturally appropriate yet business-like professional manner.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and when it is possible traveling.

About me

I was born in Australia and lived in Hobart and Sydney. I grew up in a bilingual environment conversing between Greek and English. Growing up in such an environment gave me the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds and cultures.

In my late 20s, I moved to Greece. I lived and taught in Athens, for 5 years before moving to Nottingham, UK. I taught English for Academic Purposes at The University of Nottingham for 10 years. Now, I am back in Athens and in the summers, I go to The UK to teach English for Academic Purposes at different universities. For example, during summer 2018, I taught at King's College and  summer 2019 I taught for 3 months at The University of Edinburgh.

Asides from teaching, I enjoy meeting people, going to the cinema, exploring new places and I am learning to play classical guitar.

About me

I was born in the US, and lived in Texas for over 20 years. However, I currently live in Viña del Mar, Chile, where I teach English and study for a masters degree in Computational Data Analytics with a university in The States. 

I moved to Chile in order to learn Spanish and focus on my studies. I've always loved language, and am an avid reader and writer, so teaching is a great opportunity for me to share my passion with others. I even hope to use my degree to teach computers to process language naturally like you and me. 

Outside of teaching and technology, I enjoy making music, cooking, and hanging out with my dog Denna.
