Sweed Academy needs you. We believe in something different. We believe in people. We want to put the price in your hands as much as possible.
We believe in many hands make light work. In the same way, if many people give a little, everybody eats cheaply. English is a global language. We don't believe that learning how to communicate fluently should only be for people who have money.
Let's make a deal...
Our part: To provide as much quality content (video lessons, blogs, live chats, private classes, etc.) as we can for free.
Your part: To consider contributing from for membership. You decide the right amount for you depending on h and how much you can afford.
What are students saying?
"Learning how to tell stories with Jesse's course "Real English Practice" New English native expressions and learning the nuances of the phrasal verb: reach out for someone. Interesting lesson. Thank you!" - Maria (Spain)
"It’s always a lot of fun having classes with Jesse:) Apart from having some conversation about what I have recently done, Jesse also tries to help me build up confidence. Thanks:)" - Ime (China)
"I worked with Jesse for a very specific type of purpose - gathering feedback for my interpreting practice into English. Jesse is knowledgeable, clear, supportive, and spot-on with his feedback. That' above and beyond what I could expect! Strongly recommended!" - Ronnie (Hong Kong)
"Jesse was supportive, well prepared and punctual. His instruction is very concise. He also offers additional materials that support the English study for students aside from the class lesson. I am looking forward to taking his course soon again." - Norifumi (Japan)

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.
