It will be my pleasure to help you meet your next important goal with English.
Whether you need to prepare for the IELTS or get ready to take on more work responsibilities abroad, I can give you the structured speaking, reading, writing, and listening support for your success.
My offer is very different from casual conversation exchange! You will get specific exercises, worksheets, and homework to keep your progress going at the best possible rate.
If you are committed to rapid progress, I will meet you every day! If you are committed but your schedule is full, I will meet you once per week. You will still make steady progress. Please note that in order to give you proper support for steady and measurable improvement in your language skills, I only offer lessons daily or weekly.
I was born and raised in Missouri, USA. I've helped children through adults prepare for state, college, and international standardized tests for over 10 years. I've studied abroad in Portugal and Italy and love interacting with people from different cultures.
Most of all, I like to laugh and keep a happy atmosphere in my lessons. So you'll feel good, finish all the exercises, and get to your goal faster. I look forward to working with you.
*Please introduce yourself and your goals in the chat system so we can determine your needs and our fit before we book a lesson.
