Experienced English Language Teacher

Amory Hà Nội



I am an English teacher who has been living in Hanoi for almost four years. I met my wife here not long after arriving and we have one child and another one on the way. We are happy to be living here in my wife’s home country enjoying the quality of life that we have found here in Hanoi. I had my first experience in Asia nearly 20 years ago when I went to the Philippines and I loved it. After spending a year in Thailand, I made Hanoi my home and plan on staying indefinitely. My wife and I both enjoy phuot — traveling by motorbike, but as parents of a young child we are quite limited in our travels. I have enjoyed teaching and have built a good rapport with many of my students. I hope that I can help you accomplish your goals in learning English.
