Tell us about your startup - give us your elevator pitch.

Children worldwide need to learn spoken English and they especially need to learn in small groups. I have developed an innovative system that covers the first 100 hours of classroom instruction. The system will be sold to tutors who want to offer students small class instruction at home or in a small school. The program offers teachers a full set of classroom materials and an online learning system that is designed to accelerate the speed at which children learn. The teaching materials are designed to make it fun and easy to teach so that anyone with an interest in children and the ability to speak English well can start teaching after 20 hours of training. We will franchise teachers in our system and let them become the points of sale for the program. We believe in most places parents of beginners prefer small classes to large classes especially if the costs are comparable. I am currently looking for partners with an interest in education, games, children and/or languages.


Currently living in Shanghai. I have spent 20+ years developing a blended e-learning system for Asian children (6-10 years old). I have created adult language learning products too. Interested to find partners. Love working with language learners.
