About the lesson

I'm a professional film and theatre actor with over 35 years experience in film tv and theatre (49 credits IMDb), inspired to use my experience as a communicator and performer for your English lessons. With theatre sports, improv and active participation, we can jump right in to a scene or improvisation using the English language. This is excellent for practicing the rhythm of English, as we play characters in a film, or explore language while improvising a scene together. I use fun, interactive ways for you learn and understand the sounds, rhythm and feeling of speaking English like a Native speaker. All this means having an authentic and fun experience, and learning faster.

I am currently in Bangkok Thailand (12-15 hours time difference), so please allow extra time for me to respond to your request.

I am excited to hear from you and what you looking for as a student, so why not book your free trial lesson today and see if we are a good fit!

    1. When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field? *

    I was first inspired by my grade 10 drama teacher Gary Stromsmoe at Western Canada High School in Calgary Canada, who made drama class the coolest place to be in school. I was intrigued by Theatre as a crazy and wonderful form of self expression and followed in the footsteps of other performers who were also colleagues and students of Gary: [Michael Stirling Green/ One Yellow Rabbit, Ikarus theatre co]. Today I want to integrate my experience and energy as a actor with my new field as ESL teacher to create fun and effective lessons for my students.

    2. What makes you passionate about your subject? *

    I've always been passionate about languages, travel and culture, so this is an opportunity both as teacher and student, to further my experience and learning in the field of language learning, and in sharing my energy with others.

  • 03

    3. What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"? *

    I love the opportunity to work 1 on 1 and see the student improve. I'm also interested in being creative about adapting my lessons as needed for each student.

  • 04

    4. Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? *

    Gary Stomsomoe (WCHS Drama) in Calgary was wonderful in his quiet vulnerable way of expressing his true self without need for affirmation. This caused his students to naturally want to collaborate with him. Wes Nuttall (WCHC Social Studies) in Calgary went out of his way with funny and imaginative over the top play acting to encourage us to learn about historical events. He even stood up on his desk once to illustrate Michelangelo falling off his scaffold, complete with voice and sound effects. This class was always very sought after and completely booked up. Jan 2021: I'm here in Bangkok Thailand, I think back to my Oxford Seminars TEFL teacher Ian McKinnon who inspired me with his dead-pan wry faced sense of humour, with humorous stories about the ins and outs of travelling the world, teaching English in even the most bizarre and interesting circumstances. We all laughed a lot in that class; it was a fresh start for me, and exciting and inspiring class that has me excited and looking forward my further adventures teaching and travelling soon.

    5. What are your keys to success? *

    Optimism, energy, listening and creativity, and all of this coming from my unique perspective as a professional performer.
