Whether you are a beginner or an advanced English speaker, I will work with you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and develop a personalized plan to help you achieve your goals. Whether you need help with grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, or conversation skills, I am here to help.
My teaching style is student-centered, which means that all instruction is tailored to your learning style. I understand that everyone learns differently, and I will work with you to find the approach that works best for you.
As a TESOL-certified teacher with a BA in History and Early Childhood Education (pre-K through 8th grade), I have helped hundreds of students from all over the world, ages 5 through adult, improve their English speaking and writing skills. All instruction is tailored to the individual learner, their current level, and learning style. Short-term and long-term tutoring plans are available.
I will work hard for you to reach the level you choose.
