If you're looking for a teacher who understands business, technology and science, as well as teaching, we should talk.


I spent fifteen years working as a high technology professional before teaching ESL to students in Korea, and now to overseas executives traveling to the US.


I enjoy teaching, and the learning of new concepts and cultures. And I find that my students really appreciate my personal experience with how things happen in the real world. I understand where many technical and scientific concepts come from, what they mean, and why they are important to our lives. In recent years I have been teaching older elementary and middle school students, and I find they too love hearing about what is happening outside a classroom.

I enjoy chronicling why events happen and investigating the forces behind them. I write continually about my travels and the forces behind many business, historic and scientific phenomena. (see my White World site) To see more about my ESL teaching in Korea visit the web site of the school where I taught from 2002 to 2008, Michigan Language Academy. (As you look through it, keep in mind that I developed the site, maintained it, and shot most of the pictures that are displayed in it.)
