Classes are available online and (when in the same location) in person. Online classes are conducted over Skype. All students are treated as individuals with unique levels of English. I administer a needs analysis with each student to maximize the effectiveness of each lesson.


Read what my students think about my teaching.

Harold/Brandon is arguably one of the best TAs I’ve ever had. He cares so much about his students and being available for us. He put so many hours into this class and many people would have been lost without all his hard work. He seriously deserves a raise.

Brandon (Harold) Eychaner is hands down the best TA I’ve ever had. While this may be taken as a criticism, I mean it as the highest of compliments: because of how well Brandon covered the material from lecture during discussion, I never needed to attend lecture, and I’m going to get an A in the class. Brandon saved me two hours each week that I would have spent in lecture. I’m a firm believer that time is the most valuable currency, and as a busy college student, having more of it was wonderful.
