Practice. Learn. Improve. Jesse Sweed started teaching English in South Korea in 2006. He then traveled to Spain, and now he teaches English online to students all over the world. As the founder of Sweed Academy, he uses that experience to create the most practical and useful courses and English lessons possible that will be useful for teachers and learners of English.

Hey there, English speakers. I'm Jesse. As it says above, I've been an TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher since 2006. I've learned a lot in that time, and I want to share my experiences with you to help you in the classroom. Whether you're considering teaching English abroad, or you have a few years experience, we will provide teacher training and support that will help you inside and outside the classroom and help you make the most of your English teaching journey.

WE CAN ALL USE A FRESH PERSPECTIVE. This is what we're offering you. Enjoy lessons, engaging activities, teaching and classroom management tips, stories, and materials to give you some encouragement as you're preparing for your classes, struggling with an academy that you don't see eye-to-eye with, or have that class that you'll never make a connection with. Be encouraged!

IF YOU'RE LEARNING ENGLISH, I've got stuff for you, too! I believe education should be available and affordable to as many people as possible. If you want to learn, I want to teach you. However, I don't believe that it should be free. Anything that has value to us has to cost us something. More than your money, I'm asking you to invest your time. This is why, even at the maximum price, you can sign up for our academy at such an affordable price.

I've helped students with:

passing exams, improving conversation skills, preparing for job interviews, public speaking, grammar, writing, or just general English improvement

If you have any ideas for future courses, let me know. I'm always open to suggestions. I want to help you get to the next level.
