Über Mich

Do you wish to speak more clearly? To be more easily understood? When you take lessons with me you will be able to more accurately pronounce words in General American English as well as better express more vivid and complex ideas while making fewer errors.

My teaching method is conversational and has a balance of:

⚫️Language Acquisition (approximately 45% of the lesson)
You will be invited to read a short article at your reading level and to summarize the article as well as describe images with details. I will also summarize the article and and give details about the images. We will then ask and answer each other's questions about the article and the images. This is how you will increase your vocabulary and intuitive understanding of grammar.

⚫️Communicative Tasks (approximately 45% of the lesson)
You will be invited to use English to express your opinions, to persuade, to get opinions and information, to inform, to tell an anecdote or give an elevator pitch.

⚫️Language Learning (approximately 10% of the lesson)
Grammar errors and pronunciation errors will be highlighted, explained, and reviewed.

I also offer IELTS preparation and writing corrections. See my resume beneath for my professional qualifications.

Sincerely,
Gary M.

About me: I'm from Florida and when I'm trying to overcome my erre moscia in Italian, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, swimming and traveling.
