In addition, he developed and administered test prep courses such as SAT, TOEFL, IELTS.
As a personal passion, Jorgen has been a freelance lexicographer in the field of informal English and has been working on one of the most comprehensive informal English dictionaries in the Anglophone world.

Having taught a variety of age groups of diverse backgrounds, Jorgen is a firm believer that an educator should be able to create a stimulating educational environment in which learners are encouraged to connect with what they study and allow their curiosity and creativity to facilitate their learning. He believes that all children are unique and must have access to an educational environment which fosters character development and encourages emotional, social, and intellectual growth, thus leading to his students' success.
