I am confident that my higher education teaching expe-rience, academic qualifi-cations, management trai-ning, as well as my English language skills, are all assets that would add great value to your online learning expe-rience. I have been teaching English as a second language and Business English over a span of ten years in an American high school, a German University, and in several international companies. My current role at our university focuses more on managing our university language institute and developing its executive education languages and professional development programme. Nevertheless, I still have a teaching load at our University, albeit a lighter one of eight contact hours per week. Managing my own language school, and teaching and managing a higher education language institute have all helped me become a team player, an effective teacher, and a professional education manager. Obtaining my Master’s Degree was a key step in my academic career, but completing my PhD in Education within the next two years is the next step for my education and professional development. Promoting academia and professional development in companies is vital for establishing a strong link between education and international business which in turn fuels an economy. I enjoy working with international companies to help their employees develop their language, cultural, business, and interpersonal skills. The online English teaching position with Grammatika is where my competencies would meet my passion. Moreover, my teaching assignments in Hungary, Germany, England, and Japan have awarded me the unique opportunity to teach executives and students from a variety of business, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. More specifically, I have given presentation skills trainings in Tokyo Japan for the Kenwood Electronics Corporation, private English lessons in Budapest Hungary, student teacher training in Oxford England, meeting moderation and presentation trainings at Nike HQ Germany, and online English language training to Korean students via Skype over the past 10 years (International Business English Teaching Certificate, TESOL certificate).

“Ray is a perfect example of someone both professionally and also naturally gifted. His ability to take a suggestion, digest it and then apply it is why he consistently sets the bar of excellence higher and higher. He self motivates and sees the outcome clearly in his mind, which is why he is successful" (Craig Markley – International Education Management).
