I have a BA in Spanish with a minor in linguistics, as well as a 100-hour TEFL certification from Oxford Seminars. I have a huge passion for language learning and I understand the difficulties that once can face when learning a new language, and I can help you overcome them! I am a very patient and understanding person, so don't worry about making mistakes during the lessons!
My conversation classes are focused on INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED conversation in English. We pick a topic that interests you, we talk about it, and we will cover the grammar and vocabulary about that topic. This helps you feel comfortable talking about ANY topic you want.
At the end of the lesson, we will review what we learned during the lesson, and I will let you know about any mistakes you made, and how to correct them. This includes some grammar review and accent reduction/pronunciation help.
These classes are open to ALL levels and include guided classes, following exercises from books that I will give to you. I teach you something new, we review it together, we do guided exercises, then you do exercises on your own and I correct any mistakes and help you understand how to fix them. This includes reading, writing, speaking and listening practice.
Interview prep, homework help, essay editing, accent reduction, grammar help, you name it!
NOTE: My schedule is flexible. I do not teach children, only adults of the age 18 or older. In case of an absence, I will wait 15 minutes and if you do not connect in that time, I will mark the lesson to be rescheduled. I understand that life happens and sometimes we can not always connect. However, if this happens multiple times in a row, the lesson will be marked as complete and you will not receive a refund.
