HERE'S WHAT SOME OF MY STUDENTS HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT ME:
[Please note: All testimonials have been edited for grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.]

"I could never have imagined I would find such an enthusiastic, interesting, and wise person when I first contacted James. Meeting James has been a powerful experience for me, both in terms of my English and my life. He has been the most dedicated, patient, and efficient English teacher I have ever had. After two classes in Cambridge, we have continued on Skype. Never before have I improved so much in terms of conversation skills and in the understanding of the English language in all its aspects. With new techniques and different teaching approaches, he has found a way to engage me in the learning process and to make me desire and love every moment I spend surrounded by English.

"This is not about spending hours in front of boring and inanimate books anymore and has become a complete, fun, and more intuitive process, in which we focus on those weaker aspects of my current knowledge as they come up. The teaching has been individualized based on the different aspects I lack. Besides that, learning doesn't finish every time James' face fades away on my computer screen at the end of our Skype classes. James sends interesting and well-structured materials for me to work with at home and has given me pieces of advice regarding different activities related to English that have helped me to improve at my own speed. Our classes are definitely worth every dollar I pay for them."
-- Pablo, Spain

"I had learned English for a long time before I met James, but I could not make a real leap in speaking English. I would strongly recommend James to those of you who seriously want to improve your English. In the time I have been working with him, first with classes in Cambridge and now from South Korea on Skype, my English skills have definitely improved. He helps his students in so many different ways and provides continual support that goes beyond the classroom. After I started working with James soon after I arrived in the U.S., he began to show me effective ways to advance my English to higher and higher levels. He also closely guided me. He is not an ordinary teacher, and his class is not just about learning grammar and expressions. His teaching methods are customized and have evolved depending on my progress. He has further helped me cultivate more natural American rhythms and accents, which no other teachers could do in the past. If you choose James, you will have a great teacher and maybe even a trusted friend at the same time!"
-- Hessung, South Korea

"I worked with James for over a year. He was not only an excellent English teacher but also a life coach who helped me to overcome challenges in my work and in my life. I really appreciate what he taught me over the time we worked together. You will get more than you expect when you learn English with James."
-- Tiffany, Taiwan

"After a long period of taking private lessons with my teacher and friend, James, I can say that he is the best teacher in the world! He not only seemed to have answers to everything, but was also able to maintain a high level of energy, creativity, and enthusiasm. He knew exactly what I needed, and he explained everything so amazingly well that I understood everything he taught me very quickly. I learned so much about English from James and also how to improve my English outside of class. The materials he created and the regular attention he gave me outside of class also helped me a lot. I really looked forward to going to his classes every week!"
-- Amador, Spain

"I sincerely recommend James, a wonderful teacher not only in English but also in life guidance, to all who seek to improve English skills and/or who are eager to understand American culture and history. James has incredible cultural sensitivity and intellectual diversity as well as passion and patience in teaching. I have benefited tremendously from James in accent reduction, speaking/listening comprehension, and presentation skills (just to name three areas) since we started classes a while back. I have heartfelt gratitude to James for his continuing energy in teaching and for guiding me in many aspects, levels, and stages of life."
-- Ching-Fu, Taiwan

"James is an extraordinary teacher, providing a professional teaching approach combined with a fun working atmosphere. He easily identified my weak spots and came up with an individual approach to address these issues and resolve them. He is very motivating, encouraging, creative, highly skilled, and energetic, offering not only English lessons but learning for life as well. I enjoyed this holistic approach, benefitting from a unique teaching material data base which he created all by himself and which is still available to me now, even after I have finished classes. He is simply a great teacher, which you need to experience for yourself. Words can't explain."
-- Jürgen, Germany

"Working with James was the best investment I made while I was in Boston for a year. When I arrived, I had a lot of problems speaking English. I also had major problems with pronunciation and grammar. When I started working with James, he immediately began to help me to prioritize my learning process. He also challenged me in the right way to reach my very high goals. I felt that James helped me every second I was with him, and even when I was not in private class with him! When I had to prepare for presentations for my professional work, James gave me very valuable tips that made a big difference. He has a lot of experience in public speaking. Definitively, I can say that I got a big return on my investment. Now that I am back in Spain, I still work with James -- on Skype!"
-- Ignacio, Spain
