About Me

Hello! Hola! Ciao! Bonjour! こんにちは! привет!

I’m a CELTA qualified Native English Teacher from the USA. My passion is guiding students to develop enthusiasm and confidence while learning English in order to open doors to new possibilities and change their lives. I’m extremely passionate about international education and have spent the past 12+ years working in this field and coaching and supporting students to reach their potential. Although I am from the US, I’ve lived in Europe (Spain, United Kingdom, and Italy) for the past 15+ years and speak Spanish, Italian and Catalan and I am also learning Japanese.

I have over 6+ years of experience as a teacher/trainer/coach and have taught General English, Business English, Conversational English, Test Preparation, and Young Learners (children and teens) to students of all levels and ages. I specialize in Business English, due to my experience working in global multi-nationals and in talent acquisition and development. In addition to practicing Business English, we can also work on developing your business soft skills and practical skills in areas such as job interviews, leadership, negotiation, meetings, presentations, and business writing skills.

As I have experience in employee coaching, training, and professional development, I incorporate this into my teaching methodology. In our first sessions, we will work together so I can understand your passions, needs, and goals. Then, we will focus on communicating with confidence, fluency, and accuracy in real life situations to learn in an effective and efficient manner. Your lessons will be highly interactive, motivational, and practical and focused around topics of your interest. As a person, I am positive, fun, understanding, goal-driven, and creative and bring these skills and passion into my lessons.

Types of lessons taught:
- Practical English & Conversation Practice
- Practical Business English
- English & Business Soft Skills
- English & Job Interview Skills
- English & Presentation Skills
- IELTS or Cambridge Exams Test Preparation
- English & University or Graduate School Admissions Skills

NOTE: Any lesson changes or cancellations must be done before 24 hours of the lesson start time or the lesson is non-refundable.
