I've been where you are...

I get it.

I know the struggles of being in the classroom.

From the early days of navigating lesson plans to the ongoing challenge of engaging students, I've been through it all.

Remember those moments of doubt when you questioned whether you were making a difference?

I've been there.

It's tough, and it can make you feel like you're fighting an uphill battle.

But let me tell you, there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Through years of experience and dedication, I've discovered strategies that not only work, but make teaching more enjoyable.

I've seen firsthand the transformation in students who once struggled to grasp concepts through the power of comprehensible input and proficiency-based instruction.

So if you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or just plain exhausted, know that you're not alone.

I've been there, and I'm here to help you navigate the challenges, embrace the breakthroughs, and ultimately, become the kind of teacher you've always aspired to be.

Together, let's unlock the full potential of language education and empower our students to thrive.

Webversity Course

“This was the single most-important investment of both my time and money this school year. I learned so much from Scott, gained new tools to use in the classroom, and received feedback on what I am doing in the classroom. I will definitely be back next year!”

Webversity & Curriculum

“This class and the Immediate Immersion materials are SOOOO helpful! This is what I have needed for 3 years. I work so much better when I can follow a detailed program first, then maybe branch out once I get comfortable. This is making all the things you have told me in the past and other things I’ve read/watched make so much more sense. I’m very excited about it!”

I highly recommend...

Here are some books that I highly recommend. The first is "While We're on the Topic" by Bill VanPatten. This is a great, practical book on language acquisition that isn't boring and intersperced with humor. The other books are great for curriculum-building. They focus on the most frequent words in each language and are some of the best money I've spent on my teaching career. Although I've highighted only the French, Spanish, and German languages, this series is available in many other languages. Click the links below to see what is available.
