😊Let's talk and improve! Let's stop translating! 😊

See the Oxford 3000 (A1-B2 Level) and Oxford 5000 (B2-C1) word lists here for the most important words that you should learn:https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/about/wordlists/oxford3000-5000

Also, for phrases and academic English go here:

My number one goal is for students to stop going to Google translate when they don't recognize a word, and to instead for them to use a real dictionary to try and figure out the meaning first. This will substantially increase their vocabulary and will lead to them thinking in the language. Translating should be their last option if they want to make progress, not their first.

*Additional Information*
I specialize in teaching Intermediate to Upper Advanced English speakers only. If you can understand most of the English you hear about everyday topics and have been able to have conversations before with English speakers you should be able to take lessons with me and benefit from them.

I also have experience with CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program), DET (Duolingo English Test), and IELTS exam preparation.

Additionally, I will also review anything you have written.

*My Biography*
I live near Cocoa Beach, just east of Orlando, Florida, and I like travelling, running, and going to theme parks and water parks with my family. I help parent an 8 year old girl, so I can relate to any parenting challenges you may want to discuss.

I'm most experienced in teaching students who are native Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian speakers.

In addition to having taught 2000 one-on-one lessons online, I also have multiple accredited teaching certifications totaling 250 hours of professional education. See my resume by scrolling down on your screen.

**Please make sure you have high speed internet and that you can access US based websites in your country before booking**

Sincerely,
Gary
