I am a seasoned ESL/EFL instructor with fourteen years of experience teaching children, college students and international business professionals. My clients have been from various countries throughout Asia, South America, Europe and the Middle East.

For the last two years my focus has been on Corporate Language Training. I designed and developed a Business English Language Program for the Louis Vuitton U.S. Manufacturing Facility in California. I currently provide English tutoring services to executives from international corporations focusing on public speaking, business writing and accent reduction.

In addition to language instruction I offer cross-cultural training. I have successfully advised my clients on how to use English appropriately in various contexts. I have an innate aptitude for assessing cultural differences and enjoy problem solving to find solutions.
