"James is the most amazing English teacher I have ever had. Since I started studying with James in 2016, my English level has improved tremendously. James adapts the class to the specific needs of the student. He has helped me enrich my vocabulary, improve my grammar, and most importantly for me, "Americanize" my pronunciation. My colleagues at work and my friends have witnessed my progress, and they have been impressed. I feel very confident speaking in public now. James' method is unique as it makes the student understand not only how the language works but also how to feel it. I can see how this may seem strange -- but it works!"
-- Pauline, France

"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. During the time I worked with him, first with classes in Cambridge and then from South Korea on Skype, my English skills 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 evolved depending on my progress. He 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

"When I started my doctoral studies, I was already a 'good-enough' English speaker; yet, I wanted to take it to a higher level in order to be able to smoothly debate complex ideas in English. . ..My program with James covered mainly accent reduction and grammar. My experience was very pleasant, and the results were better than expected. I am now much more confident while speaking and writing in English. James is truly an expert in accent reduction! It was a worthwhile investment."
-- Leo, Brazil

"...I can say that James is the best teacher I have had in my entire life. He is really committed to your improvement, and he has great knowledge, and a unique technique that allows you to improve speaking/listening. During the time I have been with James, I have had the opportunity to discover things that I had never imagined I would learn, and I have improved my pronunciation so much. He goes where no one else dares to go. I highly recommend this method."
-- Oscar P., Mexico

"James is transforming the way I approach English as a second language. He is not only helping me to identify my individual mistakes, but he is also making me aware of my general patterns that have been preventing me from further developing my skills. By identifying and working with me on crucial sounds that I have had difficulty pronouncing in the past and by helping me to categorize grammar mistakes that I was not aware of, James has taken me to a higher level. He has given me a totally different perspective on how to continue to develop my English skills outside of class."
-- José, Spain

"I have made significant and quick progress in my English while studying with James. Demand for good communication is very high in large corporations like mine, even the need for mastery of the language. As soon as I was appointed to my new leadership role, I felt the urgency to take my English skills to another level, and James was pivotal for me to advance. His knowledge of the language coupled with his teaching method enabled me to make steady progress in a relatively short time. I recommend James' method for those who, like me, are looking for perfection."
-- Rodrigo, Brazil

"Working with James was a wonderful experience. James and I communicated throughout the whole time to adjust the teaching to help reach my goals. In my case, it was about improving my accent. James was able to spot my weak points so that I could work on them (and I continue to do so). His dedication to his students is incredible. Thus, I was almost feeling like James was with me when I was speaking in English outside class. This hard work, done by both of us, paid off. My accent has dramatically improved, and many of my American friends have noticed...."
