"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

"There is nothing you can't achieve when you feel confident about yourself and your language skills. After working with James, I have improved more than just my ability to communicate in English, I have changed my life. And for the better. James brings in as much energy and commitment to your success as you do. He understands first-hand how important it is to be fluent in a new language and creates the right atmosphere...."
-- Tcheilly, Brazil

"I have come to enjoy English much more since I have started working with James. I'm amazed by how quickly time passes in his classes. I have not only learned a lot about the language, but equally important, I have also gained a deeper understanding and appreciation of myself. My level of confidence has increased significantly, and I find myself more comfortable in English."
-- José, Spain

"...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 was with James, I had the opportunity to discover things that I had never imagined I would learn, and I improved my pronunciation so much....I highly recommend this method."
-- Oscar, Mexico

"Thanks to James, I have learned the beauty of English. Before taking his private lessons, I was afraid of speaking during meetings, but now I have confidence doing that. He helped me to increase my fluency and accuracy in English. This is very important for work, especially for non-native speakers. James was not only my English teacher, but he also gave me life guidance and advice."
-- E. Wang,

"I moved from Germany to the U.S. to work as an executive for our subsidiary in Cambridge. Even though my level of English was good, I started to look for a teacher to enhance my fluency and improve my pronunciation. I worked with James very successfully for two and a half years . He is an excellent teacher and his methodology improved my language proficiency significantly."
-- Rocco, Germany

"James creates a very friendly environment for his students. For a Chinese person, used to strict and formal teachers, it is a big and pleasant surprise. Before I started classes, I was very worried about improving my English skills. I even e-mailed James before we started classes, asking him for links and help. He told me not to worry, that he had a system. Generally speaking, James has helped me a lot with my English speaking and listening skills. Before I started classes, I was often confused listening, and I was less confident speaking to others. I now know how to improve my listening skills on my own.

"In less than a few weeks of taking classes, James has provided me with a lot of effective instructions, and I feel more confident. I no longer need to search desperately and to try different possible solutions. What I need to do is just keep following the instructions I get and have gotten from James. Also, James has given me a lot of opportunities to express my ideas and then has corrected the mistakes I have made during the process of speaking. James' method works."
-- Jianyu, China

"What I liked the most about James' classes was the way we structured the classes, and when I say 'we' it is because I had the opportunity to design every class with him. I also liked that he was able to answer all of my many questions in the moment, with very clear explanations. Now I feel more comfortable and relaxed when speaking. This was a big step for me. In addition, I am more aware of language and words. Since I came to the United States seventeen years ago, I have been in many English classes, and my experience with James was the best. He really understood my needs and how important it was for me to finish college. He was always there for me."
-- Cristina, Venezuela [Cristina has recently returned for more Skype classes!]

"For most Japanese English learners, I think speaking is the most challenging skill, but the one they want to improve the most. James gives students the opportunity to talk as much as they want. This has helped me, because like most Japanese learners of English, I was shy and not confident speaking in a group in class. When I was in Boston, I went to an English language school for six months. However, I wasn't able to improve my English skills enough there.

"James has taught me how to speak English correctly and has provided me with models, according to my level. He has also taught me correct pronunciation, including intonation and rhythm. In addition, I have been learning how to choose the right words when I speak. James has helped me with other skills too. I worked with him for over a year the first time and have returned again for more classes, on Skype. James often asks me what I am interested in doing during class, and he doesn't push anything on me. We sometimes talk about sports, songs, or movies, but we also talk about deeper things, like work and life."
-- Shutaro, Japan

"I could never have imagined I would find such an enthusiastic, interesting, and wise person when I first contacted James. Meeting James was a powerful experience for me, both in terms of my English and my life. He was the most dedicated, patient, and efficient English teacher I had ever had. After two classes in Cambridge, we continued on Skype. Never before had I improved so much in terms of conversation skills and in the understanding of the English language in all its aspects. With new techniques and different teaching approaches, he found a way to engage me in the learning process and to make me desire and love every moment I spent surrounded by English.

"This was not about spending hours in front of boring and inanimate books and became a complete, fun, and more intuitive process, in which we focused on those weaker aspects of my knowledge as they came up. The teaching was individualized based on the different aspects I lacked. Besides that, learning didn't finish every time James' face faded away on my computer screen at the end of our Skype classes. James sent interesting and well-structured materials for me to work with at home and gave me pieces of advice regarding different activities related to English that helped me to improve at my own speed. Our classes were definitely worth every dollar I paid for them."
-- Pablo, Spain

"James is the most amazing English teacher I have ever had. Studying with James, my English level improved tremendously. James adapts the class to the specific needs of the student. He helped me enrich my vocabulary, improve my grammar, and most importantly for me, "Americanize" my pronunciation. My colleagues at work and my friends witnessed my progress, and they were 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

"James is an extraordinary teacher, providing a professional teaching approach combined with a fun working atmosphere. He easily identified my weak spots and came up with an individual approach to address these issues and resolve them. He is very motivating, encouraging, creative, highly skilled, and energetic, offering not only English lessons but learning for life as well. I enjoyed this holistic approach, benefiting from a unique teaching material data base which he created all by himself and which is still available to me now, even after I have finished classes. He is simply a great teacher, which you need to experience for yourself. Words can't explain."
