Who’s Jon Dao?

I’ve taught English for years, and my specialty was always with speaking. I’ve seen students focus too much on the wrong areas. They think that if they learn “perfect” grammar and vocabulary, they’ll be able to communicate just fine.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case at all! Even native speakers struggle with getting their point across to people who know the language just fine. Think about the nervousness that comes with public speaking. Think about how often there’s miscommunication in daily conversation.

By staying in the classroom and using a traditional model of education, I realized I was part of the problem. The academic bubble would rather have people focus on tests and scores than build real life applicable skills. It’s the wrong kind of perspective. It shapes you to work within a script and system.

My goal is to stick with real practical communication.

Now, I work independently to help others as a coach instead of a teacher. Just like a sports coach, I provide strategies and options to handle situations. There’s more than one way to win after all. If you’re struggling to get your thoughts across, let me help you become a better speaker!
