Josh Schroeder: Owner and Lead Teacher

Born and raised in New Jersey, USA, I first became interested in teaching English while in my first year of undergraduate studies in Chicago.

Upon hearing about TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), I was quickly intrigued. I realized that, in addition to matching my skill set, teaching English would carry the benefits of being inherently relational, providing an opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, and enabling me to meet people from all around the world. I switched my major to TESOL and embarked on my English-teaching journey that has taken me to 4 continents and given me the opportunity to help hundreds of students progress towards their English goals.

After almost 3 years of teaching English in Saudi Arabia, I decided to return to America to get a master’s degree in TESOL. Having come to love the Arab culture and having reached an intermediate level of Arabic, I desired to continue teaching English to Arabs. However, I couldn’t find any companies that were focused on connecting native English speakers to this special audience. Seeing that there was a major need, I decided to start a company to fill this gap, and thus English Today USA was “born.” Early on, I received more requests for classes than I had time to teach, so I began searching for, hiring, and training other qualified teachers who could deliver high-quality English classes to learners from around the Arab world.

As English has become the world language and a key to countless opportunities, we would love to come alongside you to help you improve your future by improving your English!
