Joe

My name is Joe and I’m 27 years old. I went to college in my home state of Colorado, where I majored in English Literature and skiing. Recently, I have returned to the US after working for a few months in Cairo, Egypt. The Great Pyramids are very cool – a must see! But, because of the troubles Egypt is having right now, I decided to come home and continue teaching English as a Second Language via Skype for LOI. I have full certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages as well as a lot of experience teaching inside the classroom and tutoring one-on-one. I love my job because it allows me to meet new students from all over the world. If you were my student, your progress would be my priority.
