I'm a native English speaker with a Northern Californian accent and 12 years of experience teaching ESL. I am very patient and enjoy helping my students with pronunciation, expressions and grammar. My lessons are fun and productive!
Hello, I can help you speak English better. My manner of teaching enables students to develop their confidence in speaking which is highly necessary in order for them to communicate well. I encourage free expression during the class and also provide necessary corrections so students can be confident in the fact that not only are they expressing themselves, they are expressing themselves correctly.
I'm a native-speaking English teacher from California, U.S.A. I have a degree in foreign language from San Francisco State University and have been teaching in Brazil for the last 11 years, both in schools and freelance. I continue teaching privately in Brazil to professionals, helping them reach their personal and career goals. I'd like to do the same for you.
As a teacher the main thing that I focus on is the individuality of each of my students. I know and understand that each learner is different, so I first look for the areas where I can help my student to improve, and following that, I apply the lessons in a manner that will help them to make progress. I think it is essential as a teacher to first listen to your student, find out what they need, and then help them reach this. I take my job seriously. All of my students can expect to have a teacher who is determined to help them succeed.
I use a light, conversational approach to my classes, focusing on phonetics and, of course, grammar when necessary. I'll talk less than 30% of the time, which means you'll speak more than 70% of the time! Students often find my classes productive and fun. I’ll teach English online to any age, any level and any cultural background. Take a look at my courses and tell me what you think.
