For ESL/EFL Students I have 3 types of classes: 

1) Unstructured conversation classes. Here, you may come for an informal chat, bring your own questions and we dicusss any day to day information. Come prepared. No homework is provided. The price is lower since we use your materials and not mine. 

2) Structured conversation classes. 
Here, I provide you with homework. We use authentic materials and I also provide you with some notes. 
📚 Themed classes: We cover interesting and thought provoking topics. 🗣 Advanced: highlight pros and cons, agree/disagree, discuss matters at a deeper level. 🔹 We use conversation games to improve grammar patterns. 🔹Advanced: Use games for natives speakers to boost vocabulary. 🔹Advanced: Practice idioms and phrasal verbs. 📝 FEEDBACK: Google docs or 📚 PDF files. No 🚫 boring ESL material focused on grammar.

3) Pronunciation focus.
📚 Put in the work, do the assignments! 🔹 10 classes that guide you to tap into the brain and retrain speech muscles. 🔹Focus on 1-2 key sounds during each class. 🔹Suggested approach: word stress and vowels, tricky consonants, then intonation & rhythm As you know, pronunciation classes are valued at a higher price up to $200 for accent modification! Using my technique I charge an affordable $50 per session.


How did you get started teaching?

I'm a foreign language student. I began teaching thanks to my love of languages. 

I speak Portuguese and Spanish fluently. I speak Russian at an intermediate level. I'm interested in Portuguese and Russian phonology.  I studied Japanese, Korean and Chinese 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students from China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Brazil and Russia! 

My classes are IDEAL for intermediate- advanced students. My advanced students greatly benefited from the pronunciation classes and covering deeper subjects to express themselves better in English. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My students have gotten into American universities and gotten a new job in California as an accountant.
