Hi there!

I've worked in ESL teaching and assessment for about 15 years. I enjoy teaching from home because I live in the country and balance my online activities with various projects and personal pursuits.

I used to teach BIG classes. I like working one-on-one with students because it's better! This is the era of the self-directed adult learner. Each speaking practice conversation is different and dynamic.

I believe that practice is the key to becoming an advanced speaker. You can practice with anyone but a trained teacher is the best partner because I can give you good feedback + micro-teaching about grammar/vocabulary as we go along.

Learning beginner English is very different from learning English at higher levels. I will show you non-traditional ways to look at language and speaking/listening that will help you speak more creatively and more fluently.

Speaking practice with a skilled teacher is a valid and stress-free way for intermediate+ learners to make progress. Once you have the basic grammar and vocabulary, simple conversational exchange (with feedback + new vocabulary taught in situ) can be helpful.

I'm certified to teach English as a Second Language federally and provincially in my country and I work at a provincial college in Ontario. My highest ESL credential is the Cambridge RSA DipTEFLA, which is an advanced, externally-assessed proficiency exam course for experienced instructors. I can be as academic and ‘serious’ or as casual and ‘conversational’ as you like. Sometimes it's nice to have a qualified person to practice on -- with a teacher's knowledge/skills but not a formal lesson. That is the middle ground that I find works well with online ESL
