About Me

You can book a class, but I can't teach you for a long time. July 25 will be my last day on Verbling at the moment. I might be back in September.

I am a professional teacher with experience teaching all levels: beginner to advanced. I am from Oregon in the United States, but I am living in Oaxaca, Mexico now. In my classes, I focus on conversation and giving you things to say.

Tell me what you need! Here are some ideas.

Beginner/Intermediate:
* Five most important verb tenses
* American English pronunciation
* Vocabulary for your hobby

Advanced:
* Phrasal verbs and idioms
* Practice with prepositions

Special:
* Computer programming languages that use English

Hispanohablantes: Tengo mucho experiencia enseñando a hispanohablantes, por eso puedo ayudarte con errores comunes.
