Patrick O’Grady

I’ve been helping Vietnamese improve their English for over 10 years. I love being able to help people get better jobs and education through my work.

Previous to teaching in Vietnam, I worked in South Korea for 3 years, Saudi Arabia for 5 years and since 2008 I’ve been in Hanoi.

I have a beautiful Vietnamese wife and three great kids. Ace Việt, Annabell An, and Ava Linh.
