Hello, my name is Bill LaRoche. I am an American but I live in Costa Rica. My father was in the American Navy so I lived and went to school in many parts of the US, Canada, and the Panama Canal Zone. I learned American accents from all over the country and Canadian (British) accents. I teach Standard American English (without national or regional accents) which is what is required for higher degrees in most universities in the US now. I am fluent in Spanish and have worked as a professional translator in Costa Rica for their government and the US CIA,World Bank, IMF, CODEHUCA, and many other international organizations. I have also lived or worked in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. I have been teaching English for many years and I am the author of 3 textbooks for teaching English as a Second Language. I have degrees in Biology and Spanish and 5 CompTIA certifications in computers. I taught English, Computers, Spanish, and Environmental Science in universities in the US and Costa Rica. For the past 2 years I have been teaching English to many students in Russia. I don't know any Russian so I only teach Russian students who understand conversation. I teach every morning and evening, 7 days a week by Skype.
