About Me

Your goal is to learn how to speak English. My purpose is to help make that possible. You don't take guitar lessons to learn ABOUT the guitar. In the same way, you don't take English lessons to learn ABOUT English. You take English lessons to learn how to USE English. Your TOPIC BASED classes will be focused on conversation and speaking and you will be provided supplementary activities with the same topics to help you develop your listening, reading and writing skills.

I am a native speaker of American English with over 12 years of experience as a student and teacher of languages. In our classes together you will be in an immersion environment where you can dive in and develop the 4 skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing so that you can feel good when you speak the language.
