My name is Daniel Smither and I was born in Virginia in the United States of America. I am 32 years old and have a passion for learning and teaching. I understand the problems students face when learning a new language as I've been teaching English online and at home via Skype for the last two years. I’ve taught students from Russia, China, Japan, Brazil, Spain, France, Germany and Saudi Arabia, primarily. I teach on www.talk915.com, www.lumienglish.com and www.eostudy.com where I give lessons in general conversation, TOEIC, IELTS, American Idioms, and business English.

Additionally, I have been writing web content on various topics ranging from steel toe boots to SEO optimized copy for companies selling signs and printing services, and even informational articles about buying and selling gold.
