Jimmy DiBenedetto

哈囉!我是Jimmy老師。我來自離芝加哥不遠的羅克福德市。一開始我來台灣的目的是學習中文。但是歷經畢業及在這裡生活四年的時間後,我決定在此地定居,並開始我的英語教學生涯。來到台灣之前,我加入了美國空軍的通訊單位、並服務了一段時間。我對獻身為國服務的自己及國家引以為傲。在我閒暇的時間裡,我喜歡打籃球和美式足球。由於ACES對個別學生設定的優質水準,以及對學習英文的專業和務實方式,我發現在ACES教書是一件令人非常愉快的事。

Hi, my name’s James DiBenedetto but my friends call me Jimmy. I’m from a city close to Chicago called Rockford. I originally came to Taiwan to learn Chinese but four years and a college degree later, I felt I would like to start teaching English as a career. Before I came to Taiwan I served an enlistment in the U.S. Air Force assigned to a communications squadron. I am proud of my service and love my country very much. In my free time I enjoy playing basketball and American football. I find teaching at Ace’s a real pleasure due to the high standard of excellence set for each student and a professional/no-nonsense approach to learning English.

Joshua Carruthers

大家好,我是Joshua Carruthers。我出生於美國密歇根州的大急流城,這是一個活潑可愛的小鎮。在我所有的學習過程中,我熱愛閱讀和觀察,並在密歇根州阿連達爾的大谷州立大學得到了刑事司法和法律學位。當我在非營利組織救世軍實習教導青少年時,得到了很大的成就感。 後來我在法律界從事少年教管人員,後來發現自己更適合當一位教育者。經過深思熟慮之後,我在2010年來到台灣並開始教書,且愛上了這個美麗的島嶼、文化和民情。從那之後我一直在台灣教書,ACES就像我的家一樣,期待與您在課堂上相見!

Hello all, my name is Joshua Carruthers. I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a lively and lovely little town. Throughout all of my schooling I have carried a love for reading and detail, and I pursued a criminal justice and legal degree at Grand Valley State University in Allendale Michigan.  While interning for the Non-profit organization, the Salvation Army, I found great accomplishment in educating youth. I continued into the legal profession as a juvenile corrections officer, but found much more of a calling towards educating. After much deliberation, I came to Taiwan to teach in 2010, and fell in love with this beautiful island, the culture and the people. I have been teaching in Taiwan ever since and feel like I’ve found a home here at ACES. See you in the classroom!
