I currently am the premier ESL instructor in south Florida for a European based company with which I am sent students for intensive one on one English training. I also teach the most important private class students for a well known south Florida University. I have more than 8 years experience. My students include High School students, Government critical professions (like Air Traffic Controllers and International Law Enforcement), and CEO's of major international companies. My teaching methods include iconic based learning as opposed to boring memory work, (which is not nearly as effective.) I work with subject matter residents of south Florida are familiar with, including subjects ranging from the Everglades to the Florida Keys, so my lessons and approach is never boring or busy work, but results in measurable progress in mastering the English language.
There are not many species in the zoological world I am not familiar with, as I worked in research for 10 years studying the lives and habitat of some of the world's most rare, dangerous and fascinating creatures. In fact, 6 years ago, the scientists who decide such matters, honored me by including my name in the formal Latin designation of two rare species I worked with for several years. My expertise extends includes but is not limited to primates, reptiles, marine animals and fishes, amphibians and mammals. My studies have included everything from exotic and endangered fishes to arachnids, and from venomous snakes to birds of prey. I've won the top National Award from the prestigious aquatic organization, the ALA, and been called a master aquarist in magazine articles written about me.
I have, as VP, taken two companies to the apex of their marketplaces. I took one company from under 6M to almost 500M resulting in them going from private directly onto the NYSE.

I have written extensively in business, chaired countless critical international sales meetings and authored selling and management programs at all levels.
