Tutoring Style and/or Experience

The teacher has a lot of experience teaching Asian students. He started as an English language instructor in 1983 after a Berlitz-type private school in Basel, Switzerland, trained him to use the so-called Direct Method to work with one student at a time. Most of his students were Swiss, German and French professionals from the banks and pharma industries of Basel but he also had the privilege of tutoring such distinguished scholars as Takashi Miyata, a Japanese biochemist from Osaka, who did his research there at the Biozentrum. After ending his work at the Orsini Sprachschule (Orsini Language School) of Basel in 1989, he returned to California where he accepted a Marketing position with a Canon office machine dealer. In 1992, he moved to Budapest, Hungary, and started his own English language school there. He returned to the USA in 1994.
