About Me

It will be my pleasure to help you sound great when you speak American English. Get a handle on this popular, useful language!

Whether you need to prepare for the IELTS or get ready for life abroad, I can give you the conversation, reading, writing, and listening support for your success.

I was born and raised in Missouri, USA. I've helped children through adults prepare for state, college, and international standardized tests for over 10 years. I've studied abroad in Portugal and Italy and love chatting with people from different cultures.

Most of all, I like to laugh and keep a happy atmosphere in my lessons. So you'll feel good and learn faster. I look forward to working with you.
