If you are still hesitating which teacher to choose, I strongly recommend choosing Jody's class. Humor, class management, class theme, etc. I really don’t know how many things he has in his head, and how many things I can learn from him! ! Really recommend, you will like him

I love this lesson! Jody offers different issues to us besides business. I love every week we share business news to exchange with our opinion. Recommend this class!

A class provides you a path to controversial topics which may not be discussed or may have been neglected among most of the Americans. In the class, you would see and be able to understand better what conflicts a policy maker would face and learn to be more humane and tolerant to different opinions and cultures.

In this class, Jody provides a lot of related information in every aspect. Not only we have learned the difference of immigration policy under Trump and Biden's governance but also have discussed how these policies will affect the society.

Jody is a well-prepared teacher. To help class understand USA's immigration issues from different angles, Jody prepared various materials from news articles, TV series and YouTube clips. We are encouraged to ask questions so to find out the standpoints of these materials and thus be able to get better understanding of this never-ending debates of USA's immigration policies. I enjoyed the class interaction and indeed had learnt more than I expected.

Love every minute of it. This class meets my expectation. I was looking for something not too academic, with very interesting topics of great depth and context. Jody did a great job guiding it. I walked away with much more understanding to the root of why things are the way they are. It’s something I might never learnt if I tried to do on my own, at least not with this efficiency. I would certainly sign up for Jody’s class again without a doubt.

The topic coverage of the class is quite broad and extensive, which helped expand participants' perspectives and exposure. As the topics are all " hot button issues", the discussion and analysis would usually go multidimensionally and sometimes may not be able to go deeper within 1.5 hrs, which would be a tradeoff between breadth and depth. It's an interesting class that offers you source of ideas, with more input and interaction with the teacher and other participants, you gain more from it.

1. Jody老師準備非常充足,每堂課都會提供額外文章,讓課程討論更廣泛; 2. 上課氣氛活潑,老師能夠提供很好的切入點討論每個主題,即使看起來很生硬的主題也很有收穫; 3. 老師會注意開口較少的同學並讓大家都有發言機會; 4. 缺點:90分鐘稍嫌短,若大家都非常踴躍發言、討論太多生字,整堂課進度就會落後,會覺得討論的不夠完整。

This is my 7th time taking one of Jody’s classes. I really appreciate his teaching strategy and methods. First, the articles that Jody chooses always grab and hold my attention. Second, not only am I improving in my speaking ability, but also my writing skill. His effective teaching methods have been useful for me and have helped me improve my job performance. Therefore, I will continue signing up for Jody’s classes.

My best English class ever!每一堂課都很享受排除萬難不缺席。老師在課前會提供閱讀材料和提問題讓學生先做準備,課堂上的文章影片等內容非常充實節奏毫無冷場,會輪流詢問每個人的意見,有想法的人可以再補充,偶爾也會請學生讀文章段落並糾正發音,可說是聽說讀都涵蓋到了。因為內容大多是熱門或是具爭議性的議題,有很多討論的空間,藉由閱讀材料和課堂的對話激盪很多新的想法、能用不同角度來思考這些社會議題,我覺得非常充實而享受,Jody老師幽默好相處,誠心推薦這門課:)

Have you ever drawn mind map before? You would do well to join Jody's course and perceive how it can profound your impression. More than this, you can lead discussion based on material you choose, exchange ideas with learning mate. You can still reach another level since Jody would polish your expression in accurately way.

The lesson is interesting, useful, and enjoyable. Jody lead the news discussion in an organized way and let every student has opportunities to present an article and express opinions every week, which really help a lot in spoken English. He also recommended useful leaning resources for me to practice listening English. Highly recommended!

Jody的課程非常有趣,在這裡可以學到非常多Native Speaker對於各種概念的用字,Jody的文字深度也非常紮實,我們也學到在專業文章裡應該用的詞彙表達方式。 在課堂裏面,我們透過每人分享一篇國際新聞文章,由於不限主題,所以我們討論了很多新知識,包含具爭議性的話題、新科技帶來的影響、種族歧視、未來車、食物科技、環境變遷的反思等等,這些都是一般在生活當中我不太會深入思考的主題,不僅學習了英文,也訓練了自己用不同的角度思考。 也由於每位同學每週分享一篇文章,所以每一週我也閱讀了5~6篇的國際新聞文章,也增加了英文閱讀的能力。 每一次上課,Jody也會針對每一個主題再給予延伸的概念與詞彙,每一次上課結束都有滿滿的收穫。喔對了,Jody也非常有幽默感,因次每次上完課除了學習豐富之外,心情也都很輕鬆喔! 滿分真心非常推薦!

Thanks to Jody and all the classmates. That was a great evening with informative ideas. I found the way that Jody took notes of people’s sharing was useful. He would explain the vocabulary further and give examples for how people use it in certain circumstances so that we can learn more in the class. It’s good to learn from others and native speakers. I would like to take Jody’s class again, and looking forward to having more further discussions in among various topics and practicing how to speak more naturally.

Jody is an inspired teacher. We didn’t just follow the handout for the session. Jody also gave us some pop-up practices to encourage us to talk. Great MDT experience for the very first time!
