Hello! My name is John Mark King (John Mark is my first name) and I have been a professional English teacher since 2003, when I earned a master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from the American University in Washington, DC. Since then, I have taught mostly academic and professional skills to adult learners. I have lived in several countries outside the US and have skills in understanding and working with culture challenges English learners have. I believe that creativity and hard work are the keys to language success and I do my very best to give my learners the type of individualized instruction they need in order to succeed with the language.
