Hi there! I have over ten years of experience helping English
learners achieve their goals. I help people develop their reading
, speaking, listening, and testing skills for a wide variety of purposes. I completed my certification in 2004 in Prague, Czech
Republic, and taught there for 3 years before moving on to Berlin, Germany, and then San Francisco. I've worked with students of all ages and interests: working professionals in diverse fields, graduate and college students, and school-age learners. I've helped people with test preparation
, interviewing, presenting, job skills of all kinds, writing development, pronunciation and accent reduction, and basic functions
for living in an English-speaking country. My intention is to help you define and reach your goals, and have fun along the way!
I am also a passionate advocate for sharing the healing benefits of yoga
. After a car accident in 1998, I started practicing at the recommendation of a friend. In 2006, I completed my first teacher training, then began study in a holistic yoga tradition based in Chennai, India. I studied in Chennai, as well as completing a 500-hour training with leading yoga therapists in San Francisco at Healing Yoga Foundation. I've worked with people coping with breathing problems, stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain throughout the body, eating disorders, cancer and its treatments, PTSD, substance abuse, hypertension, migraine, and homelessness. I also create practices for people interested in meditation, Vedic chanting, beginning yoga, and general well-being. Currently, I work for several East Bay yoga studios, Kaiser Permanente, and the Niroga Institute. Please note that my rate for ESL
is $45; for private yoga, $80. I look forward to talking with you!
