About Me

Hello from the great state of Texas! Do you want to speak English freely and understand spoken English easily? I am a native English speaking teacher. I hope to meet you soon and help you express yourself in English accurately, independently and confidently.
I have more than 23 years experience teaching English. I am fluent in Uzbek (a Turkic language), know a bit of Russian, and I love to travel, cook, and garden.
Whether you are near the beginning or already advanced in your English language skills, you can advance in your listening and speaking ability through conversational lessons with me on Verbling.com. As we read and discuss topics and texts, I will help you with grammar and pronunciation. If you want to focus on grammar, you will not only learn more rules, but you will use them in conversation as we study together. Your lessons will be prepared specifically to meet your needs and to reach your goals.
Book a lesson and let me know what you need:
> Conversation for fluency and pronunciation
> Grammar with practice using what you learn in conversation
> Vocabulary building and reading with conversation
Let's talk! I look forward to meeting you.
