Ryan Gotschall, CPA

Tom Kearin provided me with the opportunity to educate Peruvian people in the Andean city of Cusco. The language institute, “Maximo Nivel Intercultural Center,” is a phenomenal organization at which teachers, students, and volunteers get together to share cultural and linguistic ideas (as well as other projects). While working at Maximo, Tom gave me autonomy during class time (a hands-off management style) while also facilitating workshops and other opportunities to grow as an ESL Instructor. These meetings allowed teachers to share ideas and to develop as individuals, ultimately improving the teachers and the language institute collectively.

Originally a CPA (starting his career at KPMG), Tom went above and beyond by offering certification courses for Business English (as well as for TOEFL / International Exams). These certifications strengthened my resume and made my time in Cusco even more worthwhile. My experience at Maximo Nivel was outstanding, and I appreciate Tom’s willingness to help me every step of the way. Be sure to reach out to Tom and the rest of the Maximo Nivel team during your job search.
