I enjoy meeting new people and helping them accomplish their dreams.
Guy is the ideal English teacher! He showed me how to get into the college of my dreams and even helped me start my own business. He is a true genius and a business guru. I often call Guy with questions about the nuances of the English language, American business culture, or both; and he always provides the best help.

My standard rate is between $75 and $100/hr. The exact rate you are charged will be determined based on:
- your goal(s) or desired outcome(s)
- your speaking proficiency
- whether we have lessons by phone/Skype or in person
- your location
– and a few other factors.
Note: First lessons/meetings are half-priced ($33–50/hr.). After that, we determine a specific strategy, including: weekly goals, 1-month goal, 6-month goal; meeting frequency; and meeting location (local or remote). I am willing travel up to 150 miles to meet with the best students.
I attract hard-working, goal-driven learners who are self-motivated and focused. If that is you, or if that is who you want to be, then we will work well together.
Be precise about your goals and revisit them every day.
Ask all of your questions during lessons or meetings.
Try every method until you find one that works.
What are your goal(s)? (Be specific.)
What do you expect to gain from your relationship with your tutor/coach? (Again, be specific).
Are you willing to fail until you succeed?
