Hello, My name is Robert Albrecht and I am originally from Akron, Ohio in the United States. I grew up in South Florida and love the beach and outdoor activities. I have also lived in Seattle, Portland, and Southern California! I am very outgoing and have been teaching English as a second language for over 12 years in Spain, Japan, the United States, and Costa Rica! I love meeting new people and helping them to achieve their goals! I find it interesting to teach people from different cultures and share experiences and stories!
I spent one year in Japan from August 2005 - August 2006 and I had an amazing experience there! I lived for my first six months in Tsuyama in the Okayama prefecture. It was a pretty small city in the mountains! The second six months I lived in Kobe! So I had both a rural and city experience in Japan and I really enjoyed it!
Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries I have seen and lived in, but it is still a developing country and therefore does not have the most sound or up to date infrastructure. This includes roads and electrical systems. The electricity unfortunately can sometimes go out due to intense weather or system failures. I always do my best to arrive promptly for classes, but in the rare chance that I do not arrive for a lesson it is most likely due to an outage in the electricity. This can be seen in my 'No-show' rate, as the classes listed there were missed due to a power outage. I would therefore ask for your kind understanding in this matter when considering to take a lesson with me. I am sometimes left to the mercy of second world infrastructure, but will always do my best to arrive on time and provide the best class possible. I hope you will be brave enough to take a chance. You might be pleasantly surprised.
I am passionate about seeing my students improve and grow! I work hard to make all my students feel comfortable too! My strengths include grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, exam prep, business English, and also everyday English. I also enjoy focusing on any particular area or topic that the student would like to explore or master.
I have experience teaching all levels and ages! Please feel free to choose from the selection of books and we can get started!
I look forward to meeting you! I hope that we can learn and grow together!
