I have a Master's Degree in English Literature, from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. And I have taught English in Bulgaria, and China, -- both for test-taking skills (SAT, ACT, TOEFL, etc.) and for general conversation. My teaching style is just to encourage students to talk! Don't be shy. We make mistakes in class so that we can learn from them. : )
