I was born and raised in the United States of America, near San Francisco, California. My desire to venture out into the world led me here to Budapest, Hungary in 2002 and I have been teaching English and learning Hungarian and the ways of Hungarians for just as long. As a result of my desires to settle in this neck of the woods, I augmented my teaching successes and ambitions by founding MediaAccess Bt. in 2003. My company has recognized and developed a particularly new business-model and language program which cater to English language learners of all ages and abilities.
As a result of my several years of learning Hungarian I have been able to understand the differences, aspects and the problems which you face while you are learning English. Knowing the differences between the grammars, I am able to recognize the weaker points of your language learning procedure.
My language program is simple and easy. My intentions are not to open a new school; I am a sole proprietor. I hold private and group lessons here in the office, at your workplaces or residents for all kinds of students.
I take great pains in shaping this unparalleled English language study method. This program is suitable for every level of English-based knowledge – from beginners to the completely advanced – and for everyone else in between.
We are centrally located on the corner of Várfok u. and Vérmező u. (near Moszkva tér), which is an attractively-accessable place of business for students and parents. Make yourself at home when you come into the office – this place is yours and mine alike. Together we make it work.
With many useful aids, we improve your English language proficiency faster and stronger – but in the end, you’re the driver. So your progress falls on your own shoulder – I am just a tool with many resources. Whatever test or technical areas you want to grow in in English, I can probably help.
For example, I offer lessons through SKYPE, which has many advantages in sharpening your burgeoning listening development. SKYPE is an easy tool for us to use; it can simultaneously clarify that difficult-to-hear spoken word with text messaging and other materials. Using SKYPE, I will help you strengthen your verbal and written communication skills without the advantage of a face-to-face meeting nor the disadvantages of you traveling to our office. Our lessons using SKYPE adds to your English learning agenda.
With those of you who need short-term or long term plans, we can stay connected for one day or a lifetime. Such a thing can happen where only temporary help is needed for a specified reason. Others may need to start from scratch - I am quite qualified to teach you from the very bottom. You make your own program and I’ll do what I can to give you what you need in a way that is right for you – as you tell me it is – this leads me to the following statement.
There is a Hungarian saying, „A mother doesn’t understand a word from a child who doesn’t speak (using the word ’dumb’ may be ambiguous here)”. There’s a reason why I have learned to quote this saying from time to time – it has appeared to me that there are always a few who don’t recognize this. I teach communication with English skills, common marketplace formalities, psychologically advantageous posturing, body language, intonation, etc., all of which will contribute to your desired effects in your request to communicate in English in an English speaking world – but I don’t practice clairvoyance (at least not on a professional scale). In other words, stand up, speak out, express your desires for our common successes.
A world language – lucky for me English was chosen, and not Hungarian – is needed to support communication bridges and to cancel cultural divides and gaps in today’s world - I give you those gap-fills. Communication isn’t only a key to success, but a necessity to be added to within every area of your daily lives. It isn’t enough simply to learn the basics of communication well – you must use them well. I'll help you do that.
Adding to the art of communication, I think it is an essential asset to offer training in computer office software products that will give you a cutting-edge with your creative options in getting your message out. This is in the works, but still currently available.
