About me: I have years of experience teaching people as young as 3 years old up to adulthood; online as well as in a classroom setting. I have been involved with the italki community since 2012 as a teacher, student and community member. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Education, and am looking forward to beginning my professional teaching career. Although English is my native tongue, I am a speaker of several other languages: French, Spanish and Swedish at the intermediate level, German at the conversational level, and Korean and Polish at the beginner level. I know first-hand the challenges experienced when learning a new language and I am here to help you overcome that and make the most of your online-study.

About my lessons: I can offer informal, conversational tutoring as well as intensive grammar practice and vocabulary building. After our session, I will email you a record of our session; any corrections made to your speaking, the new words you learned and grammar revised. This is for you to keep for your persona study and practice, most students find this helpful! I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with your English-learning needs!

**Please note: I understand that sometimes things in life make us busy, and prevent us from attending our online internet sessions. I have a very busy life, just like you. If you cancel your session 24 hours in advance, then I will understand and make sure that the italki credits are returned to you. After this time however, I have already made arrangements to be there for you and have made myself unavailable to other students. For this reason, I expect to be paid for the session if you cancel less than 24 hours before.
