Bob MacLeod

自1997年起就在台灣教英語的我,來自加拿大東岸新伯倫瑞克省,擁有教育學士學位,教書可說是家族傳統。閒暇時我喜歡騎著自行車在台北郊外地區逛逛、 打棒球、曲棍球、或是到處旅行。看著學生由開始學ABC進步到能夠自己寫出一篇作文,是我在教學中得到的最大樂趣。

I have been teaching English in Taiwan since 1997. I’m from Dalhousie, New Brunswick, which is a small town in eastern Canada. I come from a family of educators. My father is a retired principal and my sister is a teacher in Canada. I have a Bachelor of Education from the University of New Brunswick. In my free time, I enjoy cycling in the hills surrounding Taipei, playing hockey, baseball and traveling. My greatest enjoyment comes from watching my students’ progress from learning the alphabet to being able to write a composition on their own.

大家好,我是Daniel,來自美國北卡羅來納州的一個美麗小鎮,2005年在坎貝爾大學拿到歷史學位後,因為對於體驗新文化與交流、以及學習新語言的渴望,我決定在2006年來到台灣,並藉由英語教學來實現這份渴望。而這是我一生中做得最棒的決定!在ACES當老師讓我感到驕傲,我和一群非常優秀的老師一起工作,且不遺餘力地幫助我成為一位更好的老師,我相信我的教學技巧會因此在ACES達到最高的境界。想上我的課嗎?趕快來登記吧!

Hi everyone. My name’s Daniel Ray. I was born and raised in the beautiful small town of Cornelius, North Carolina, USA. I earned my B.A. in History from Campbell University in 2005 and was eager to experience a new culture, learn a new language and share my own culture with others, so in 2006 I decided to come to Taiwan to fulfill these desires through teaching English. It was the greatest decision of my life. Being an ACES teacher makes me proud. I am surrounded by a group of amazing teachers who have a lot to offer and have helped me become the teacher I strive to be. I know that my teaching abilities will be pushed to the highest here at ACES. I look forward to teaching you!

Trey Gregory

嗨,我是Trey老師。我出生於美國印第安那州的特雷霍特市。在2006年我自密蘇里大學的國際關係研究系畢業。2009後,我搬來台灣並開始教授英文。在這段期間裡,我教過各個不同程度的學生;從幼稚園幼兒發音一直到成人商業英文等。我很開心能夠看著我的學生,由無法完整說出字句,成長提升至能完整併流暢地進行會話。ACES是個非常專業的團隊,我很欣喜能夠成為其中的一員。

Hi, my name is Trey Gregory.  I was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. In 2006, I graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.A. in International Relations. I’ve been living in Taiwan and teaching English here since December 2009. During my time here I’ve taught a wide variety of students; from phonics to kindergartners to business conversation to adults.  It’s a great feeling watching a student, who can barely speak anything in the beginning, progress to the point where they can have a full conversation in English with no difficulties. I’m very excited to be a part of this talented group of teachers here at ACES.

He graduated from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana in 1997 with a B.Sc. in Psychology part of a lifelong fascination with education and how to become a better learner.

He believes that one of the greatest gifts he can offer as a teacher is to help students develop understanding of their own learning process and in doing so help them develop personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Brian Cragun

哈囉!我是Brian老師,我出生自美國蒙大拿州,1歲半時搬到愛達荷州。我小的時候曾經在加勒比海的聖基茨島居住過一段時間,在那段期間裡我學習了法語,並發現自己對於外國語言的熱愛。之後我跟著父母搬回美國定居猶他州,並繼續我的學業。很幸運的,在我15歲時認識了一位來自台灣的同學,他很熱心的主動教我中文。我後來進了猶他州州立大學並選擇語言學為我的主修,也從此發現我對教學的熱忱。在大學四年裡,我當家教半工半讀,教學過程中,我利用我對其他語言的知識,幫助其他人更加了解英文文法。這時我決定,畢業之後來台灣展開教學生涯。在我大學的最後一年,我很幸運地被推薦到台灣大學作為交換學生。2009年之後,我就一直待在台灣。我發現我越來越愛這片土地!

Hi, I’m Brian. I was born in Montana, moved to Idaho at one and a half, then to the St. Kitts, an island in the Caribbean when I was eleven. This is where I discovered my love and affinity for language because I began learning French. After living in the Caribbean for five years, my parents decided to move back to the United States and settle down in Utah. When I was 15, a classmate of mine was Taiwanese and was more than willing to teach me Chinese. After high school, I went to the University of Utah and studied linguistics. This is where I found my true passion for teaching. Through college, I worked part-time tutoring English, and I discovered that my knowledge of other languages allowed me to help others understand grammar on a deeper level. I decided that I would move to Taiwan to teach English after graduation. During my final year of university, I was lucky enough to get the chance to attend National Taiwan University for one year as an exchange student. After graduating, I returned to Taiwan and began teaching English. I have been living in Taiwan since 2009, and find that my love for the country only grows with time.
