About Me

Hello, and welcome to Verbling! I'm a holistic health practitioner and TEFL/TESOL certified English teacher with a genuine love of people, cuisine, travel, and all things aesthetic. I currently live in Miami Beach, Florida.

My lessons tend to be focused primarily on conversation, and we will often use articles and/or videos for discussion.

I encourage you to bring your own questions, articles, and discussion topics to our sessions, and I'll be happy to provide you with essay topics and grammar exercises if you need some extra practice outside of class.

Before each session, I will send you a link to Google Docs, where you will be able to see all of our corrections and notes. You can then use your personalized document to review everything that we have discussed. Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. Thank you!

****Please note: In recent months, Verbling/Google Hangouts have been experiencing sound problems. I suggest downloading Skype as an alternative to the Google Hangouts platform. Thank you!
