English is my native language. I have been an ESL Instructor for over 12 years. I've worked at Universities in the USA as well as in Europe. My students have been from ages 6-80. Proctor and Gamble, Polish National Church of America and Nabisco have been some of the companies I've worked for. I have worked with local Physicians to enhance their pronunciation and conversational skills. The skills and background of my work and study will speak for themselves. When we meet you will be very pleased. I also have the ability to use SKYPE as a means of teaching and learning English.
