About AmericanEnglishCoach

I attended a college that required living in two different cultures for a BA. I became fluent in two foreign languages during my undergraduate years, so I know language learning from personal experience. I've done post-graduate work and have attended many in-service trainings as an ESL Instructor. I use many different types of materials. I listen carefully to my students and then offer learning tips, pronunciation practice or grammar lessons depending on your needs.
