About James Liu

Born and raised in China, I’ve been studying, working, and living in the US for over 10 years. I received a PhD in physics and an MBA from Wake Forest University and undertook my postdoctoral training at Harvard. As part of my life in the US, I have been constantly taking English lessons, both in person and online, to help improve my English proficiency. The English teachers I’ve met have made a huge impact on both my personal and professional life.

Because my English teachers had such a significant impact on my life, I decided that I wanted to give back to the teaching community. It all started when I helped 2 teachers I met on Verbling to improve their performances and grow their online teaching businesses. We made a lot of progress, and so I decided to dedicate myself to this course and start my own consulting firm to help as many teachers as possible.

Prior to establishing my own consulting business, I spent 2 years in management and marketing consulting where I helped all types of companies, from startups to global companies, in the US, EU, and China grow their businesses and overcome the challenges they faced in pricing, marketing, sales, etc.
