Hello! I'm Paul and I love English and helping people communicate well. I've spent years teaching and tutoring in Thailand and Vietnam, so I understand the cross-cultural differences of languages and the challenges that all ESL speakers and writers face. I'm CELTA (Cambridge University) certified, and I spent 20 years as a writer and editor for newspapers and magazines in the US, Japan, and Thailand before I began teaching.
This means that I have an in-depth knowledge of language as communication: I used it for many years before I began teaching it. My college degree is in English with a concentration on writing. As a former journalist, my specialty is teaching writing: not just written English, but the superior use of it so you can communicate well.
