About Benjamin VanDamme

My name is Mr. VanDamme, and I have been an ESL (English as a second language) teacher for about five (5) years now.

I have had students in my course's from all over the world: Japan, China, Spain and more.

My goal is to establish a teaching point and structure for my students that will allow them to advance in their learning styles with the American English Language.

I teach ESL Basic and Advanced. About 99.9% of all my student's who enter my basic course DO pass with the 80% or higher grade point average and advance forward to the next level of ESL.
