About Me

Hello everyone! I am TESOL certified and have more than 10 years of teaching experience in the United States.

My main focus is on speaking and helping you to be more comfortable, confident, and fluent with your words, and grammar for writing purposes. So if you want to become a better speaker or need help with writing for Business or for school, than sign up for a trial lesson today!

**I offer 30 minute lessons for 50% off the price. If this interests you, please contact me via email so I can set it up for you.**

If you focus is speaking, I like to make my lessons laid back and conversational. I will not constantly stop you when you are making mistakes because that is exhausting for you, and it will NOT help you become a better speaker. Speaking is very natural, and ALL native speakers make grammatical mistakes when speaking, yet they are still fluent and understood.

If you are ready to speak as much as possible here and do at least 15 minutes of work on your own each day, I can help you achieve results!

If you need help with grammar, then we will have very structured lessons, and I will give you homework to practice what you have learned.

Sign up for a trial lesson now for more information.
Please read on for important information:

First things first: if you are a beginner student or a child, I am probably not the best teacher for you at this time. My focus is on Middle Intermediate and Advanced students.

**Also, Please schedule a TRIAL lesson FIRST so we can get to know each other. Also, this allows you to make sure that I am a good teacher for you. Check my calendar for availability. I love learning about what you have been doing to this point and what your ultimate goals are. The trial lessons are a perfect opportunity for me to learn more about you so that I can create a learning plan just for your needs!

*Please note that if you DO NOT cancel your class at 12 hours BEFORE it begins, you WILL NOT receive a refund. If you cancel more than 2 lessons, I will not agree to work with you.**
** I do not correct your writing work outside of lessons unless you have pre-arranged this with me. **
