About Me

First of all, 5I have been teaching English for 14 years. I have lived in the U.K., China, Costa Rica and the Czech Republic. I have taught in private institutions, universities and online. My background is in business. I have a BA from Central Michigan University in Communications and Marketing, as well as, Cambridge CELTA certified. I speak Chinese and Spanish, so I know how difficult it is to learn a second language.

Furthermore, I’m also a published author and currently working on a series called ‘Traveling with Dogs’. In addition to writing, I also produce Youtube videos, which you can view on my Youtube (and Youku) page to learn more on grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and more! If you have a suggestion for a video, please email me. I’m happy to do a special video depending on the topic, in order to help you reach your goals in mastering the ability to speak English.

My future goals for this site is to offer grammar tips and more videos. All of these will be FREE to view. All you have to do is Like, Subscribe, and it’s always helpful if you share the information on Facebook and Twitter. Just look for me at ITeach2Help or Ely Acker.

Method: Everyone learns things differently, therefore, I will work with you to see what works best for you. I offer videos, podcasts, reading material and homework assignments. I give you valuable information to help you improve quickly. Classes are filled with fun learning English, such as using games, stories, and conversational topics that interest you!

Classes: Business English, TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge English: YLEand most of all, conversational English. I have experience with FCE, TOK and working with children. And I can also help with editing your CVe-mails, papers and essays.
