About Me

Welcome to the world of English language learning. I am Connie, an English teacher from New York. I have been teaching English online for over seventeen years to people all over the world. I am TEFL and TESOL certified to teach English through CIEE and I am an IELTS certified teacher.

I enjoy teaching because I genuinely like people. I read a quote once that said, "Do you know what a foreign accent is? It is courage." I strongly believe that the people I teach are courageous and determined to build and sharpen their skills in English. I respect them immensely.

I teach young children and older adults (like myself...lol). I teach people all over the world and at all levels. I believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion and we can discuss any topic you like.

I once taught a man in China who did not speak two words of English. He needed to build his skills quickly for his job. After nine months, he and I were discussing politics, society and current events. It is possible to build your skills with the right amount of dedication.

I use the communicative approach to teaching and basically that means that we can talk about a variety of topics using a wide variety of resources. When there are grammar weaknesses, we can address and correct those. Speaking about a wide variety of topics helps to build a diverse and extensive vocabulary which increases overall fluency (and confidence in speaking).

Speaking English can assist with job promotions, job transfers, relocating to a new place, or it can just be a fun thing to do so you can speak English when you travel or want to meet new friends.

I assist with job interview preparation, English proficiency test preparation - and I can tailor the lessons to suit your English speaking needs.

Cameras are optional in the classroom. I have light sensitivity which makes it difficult to look at the computer screen, so if you prefer not to use a camera, that is acceptable. 📸

Let's talk!
