How are you? Sharing English and American culture with others to support individual fluency goals is what I can do for you. My name is Teressa Marie and I live in New York, NY. As I grew up on the east coast of America, in an area called New England, specifically in the state of Vermont, I have a neutral native North American accent. I finished the rigorous Cambridge University CELTA training and have a B.S. from the University of Vermont, and am a New York University, M.A. candidate. Additionally, four years of training and a life member, at the Art Students League, New York, NY brings an understanding of culture and creative disciplines to our conversations. I have taught in or with students from the countries of France, Spain, Italy, Brazil, Japan, China, Ecuador, Mexico, Turkey, Algeria, Switzerland and more.

What do you need to do to improve your English fluency? Teaching well over 1000 students for the past 20 years including ESL both online and offline has contributed to a keen understanding of meeting the needs of each learner. I have an easy going conversational approach. Most of my students already have a strong background in grammar so I teach through Conversation to support Fluency, Expanded Vocabulary, Pronunciation, Idioms, Reading, Comprehension, Writing, Corporate Meeting Preparation, Business English and Job interview Preparation. We will expand learning as needed with movies, newspaper articles, books, movies, worksheets etc.

Studying other languages certainly gives me a sensitivity to the challenges you need to reach your goals. I enjoy Literature, Current Events, Traveling, Visiting Museums, Viewing Movies, Dancing, Cooking, Hiking, and Swimming.

Wherever you are in the process of learning English we can work together to bring you much closer toward your aspirations.

I Support Your Success.
