About Me

Working on a thesis or dissertation writing in English? Needing to get a great TOEFL score? Preparing for a job interview? Looking for a comprehensive grammar approach? Wanting to reduce your accent and improve your pronunciation? These are my specializations!

I offer intensive preparation classes for those who need to take the TOEFL very soon. I can also prepare you to get the First, Proficiency, or Advanced Cambridge Certificates and pass the ECCE/ECPE.

Does English pronunciation confuse and frustrate you? I am experienced and can help you identify and reduce your accent so it doesn't interfere with your communication!

I have a Doctorate in Education, Master's in Teaching English, over 15 years experience, and enjoy helping students reach their goals of better jobs, better English exam scores, and better fluency.

I was born in North Carolina, USA. I also lived in Florida, Kentucky, Washington, DC, and Virginia. I have traveled to over 30 countries and now live in Arequipa, Peru with my husband and children.
