About Me

Hi, there! My name is Flo, I am bilingual, a native speaker of American English, and have been a language instructor in the Philippines for over six years. Recently, I have been traveling often and I am currently based in Sydney, Australia.

As a multilingual globetrotter, I have a passion for people, languages, and cultures.

As a language instructor, I have helped students with no knowledge of a language become fluent within six months, but I've also helped many advanced students reach a higher level of fluency.

I have worked for language centers and corporate clients such as Berlitz and IBM, but I've also done a lot of private tutoring with students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I'm a certified Berlitz instructor and I focus on immersion to teach my students the target language.

I take pride in being able to help my students identify core issues and become confident English speakers. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced learner, I look forward to helping you improve your fluency and reach your language-learning goals!

I can help you prepare for English exams such as TOEIC, TOEFL, and IELTS, help you write an excellent resume and prepare for job interviews, or work on business skills such as networking and negotiating.

Once we have had our first class, I will send you a detailed analysis and lesson plan. From there, you will receive a pdf document with notes on grammar corrections, vocabulary, idioms, and pronunciation after each and every class.

By taking notes rather than interrupting you while speaking, I will help you develop fluency while still offering thorough instruction on how to improve your syntax, word choice, and intonation.

I look forward to meeting you!
