Empower your English ability with Adam Beck!
Realize your personal or professional dreams!
My new coaching program “Empower Your English, Realize Your Dreams” provides private, customized support to help maximize the English ability of any adult or teen, worldwide, through Zoom or Skype.
About me as a teacher
I was a teacher for many years, then basically “retired” to focus on blogging and writing books. But I miss teaching and I’ve decided to return! I’m now offering personal online coaching, worldwide, for a limited number of adults and teens. Tell me your dreams—or the dreams you have for your teenage children—and I’ll help you achieve them!
The highlights of my background include:
- 30+ years as a professional English teacher in the United States, Europe, and Asia (universities, international schools, language schools, and private lessons)
- 10 years as a consultant to parents raising bilingual or multilingual children
- Expertise in all aspects of English, including test preparation
- Professional writer and editor, and author of both nonfiction and fiction books, including the popular books Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability and Bilingual Success Stories Around the World
- Founder of the influential blog Bilingual Monkeys and the lively forum The Bilingual Zoo
- Longtime resident of Japan with advanced ability in Japanese

About my new program
“Empower Your English, Realize Your Dreams” is designed for adults and teens, to achieve desired life goals by strengthening your English ability and your drive for greater success. These goals can be short-term aims (like preparing for an upcoming interview or presentation), or longer-term aims (such as improving your English skills to pass an important exam).
Whatever your aims are, and whether you’d like short-term or more long-term support, I can help you.
To get started, simply reach out by email. In your message, please…
1. Tell me about yourself.
2. Tell me about your main needs for your English ability.
3. Tell me about your related aims or dreams.
Feel free to write as much as you like. The more I know about you (or your teenage child), the more effectively I can begin tailoring my support to your situation. And don’t hesitate to add any questions you may have, too.

If you’d like professional help with editing any written work, please email the document to me, or share a link so I can look at it. Then I can offer an estimated fee for this service.
