LESSONS! Take them independently or in groups. Lessons come with a suggested level, but you can take them if you're less or more experienced than the suggested level. If you're unsure, please message me. Look for these abbreviations: INT (Intermediate); UI (Upper Intermediate); ADV (Advanced) after the lesson title.
Are you a mid to upper-level English student who wants to polish up on your speaking or writing? I am a native-English speaker and writer from the US, with my CELTA certification. I specialize in teaching ESL with authentic material--not from the textbook. I love teaching individuals and small groups online. I taught in Malta for five years at its language schools; I now live and teach online from Albuquerque, New Mexico (the home of the famous BREAKING BAD)! I call my business Chocolate-English because we used to have chocolate on Fridays. This is also the name of my website. One of my greatest success stories is helping an Italian student pass a rigorous English test to get into the US Embassy in Italy. And I was was the first ESL teacher hired by McDonald's to teach ESL to their staff from the greater Albuquerque, New Mexico region. Please visit soon and I look forward to working with you!
Certification beyond Master's. Learned how to operate a museum--from budgeting and floor planning to exhibiting and public relations.
