About Me

Hi! I’m Oliver, a professional English teacher in New York City. I’m a graduate of MIT with over 7 years of experience as an educator, and experience in engineering and IT. My sessions provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to learn, practice and improve. We can work on:

• Conversational/Speaking Fluency
• Interview Preparation
• Test Preparation: TOEFL & IELTS (Speaking)
• Pronunciation and expressing yourself more like a native
• Grammar
• Specific topics that interest you
• Language learning strategy

I welcome advanced beginners (A2) and higher levels. Send me a message concerning your goals or any questions. I look forward to speaking with you and helping you improve your fluency!
-Oliver


A few more things about me, in case you’re curious:

• I have native fluency in English and Spanish, am fluent in Portuguese, and have a high-intermediate level in French.
• I can speak about a wide range of subjects since I have experience in education, engineering, information technology, for-profit and non-profit business settings, overseas volunteer service, and church service. See my résumé below for more information.

Lateness Policy: If the student does not arrive in the first 15 minutes of the session, they will be considered absent and the lesson will be charged.
