Teacher Biography

Martin James

Martin James


I graduated from the University of Oxford with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. I am the author of several books on Shakespeare including one on ESL that explores everyday English-language idioms and phrases with Shakespearean origins.

As an experienced ESL instructor, I have more than a decade of experience teaching all levels from ESL beginners to advanced students. I am patient, hardworking, and widely respected in my field.

Like many of my students, I am an immigrant. I moved to the United States from my native Great Britain in 2007. This gives me a connection with some of the more formal elements of English language that are the foundation of good business English, resume and letter writing.
