If you want to build more confidence in speaking English, look no further. I am a fun conversation partner and an effective pronunciation coach who loves helping you learn to speak with more ease.
Working with me always involves interesting chats, pronunciation support, and vocabulary building. My first university degree was in linguistics; my work has included life coaching, leading community empowerment projects in several parts of the world, and raising 3 amazing multilingual humans. I am naturally nurturing and attentive, which leads to wonderful relationships with my students in support of your English-related goals.
NOTE: I DO NOT TEACH BEGINNERS OR CHILDREN UNDER 15 YEARS OLD.
Me as a Teacher
Whether we're having a great conversation or working intensively on transforming your pronunciation, every lesson is productive. I am not shy about offering corrections and do my best to bring a sense of fun and humor to our practice. Most of all, I aim to ensure that your English practice with me is an uplifting and useful highlight of your day.
Since 2021 I have tutored hundreds of students (on 2 platforms), which has led me to develop my own unique methods, approaches, and materials for supporting the pronunciation correction and practice needs of my students.
I have lived, worked or traveled in dozens of countries. I love people and look forward to getting to know you.
My lessons & teaching style
1) If you're an advanced or intermediate student looking for conversation practice, my GREAT Conversations course is for you! Our discussions will follow topics that come up naturally as we get to know each other. If there are specific words, topics or work assignments you need support on, I'm here to help.
2) To refine your pronunciation, take my INTENSIVE Pronunication Coaching course. I'll provide texts to read on a variety of topics, offer drills for correct tongue/teeth/lip placement as necessary, and explain new words. About 70% of our time will be spent on intensive pronunciation, and 30% on conversation. 10 hour package students will receive short homework assignments.
