Whether you are an individual or part of a group I customize my lessons to ensure what you learn is most important to your success in your work and everyday life.

I work one-on-one or with groups of business professionals from all over the world to improve their English language communication skills. If you would like to organize a class for yourself or your employees, we can discuss a group rate.

I have more than 15 years experience in the corporate/high tech world as a human resources manager with a passion for helping others improve communication through improved language skills. I also teach Advanced ESL at the Mountain View - Los Altos Adult School.

I am a graduate of UC Berkeley and have an MBA from New York University as well as a California Adult Ed Teaching Credential and Certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I adapt to learning styles and needs by creating interesting and interactive lessons that are relevant to the problems and situations faced by non-native English speakers every day. I have studied five languages myself so I know the challenges and excitement of learning them.

I enjoy "traveling" to new countries by learning about your culture while improving your ability to achieve your goals through improved speaking, writing, pronunciation, comprehension, grammar, and business communications such as interviewing and presentations.

I look forward to working with you and improving your ability to communicate immediately.

In addition to my HR background, I've been teaching with WyzAnt since 2009 and am also teaching Advanced ESL at a local Adult School. I have a California Adult Ed Credential.

I went to school at UC Berkeley and have an MBA as well.

I love working with people from all over the world to help improve their communication and productivity.

ESL/ESOL

I currently teach ESL at a local Adult School and have tutored for various organizations including the International Center of New York, Business English Alliance in New York and the International Effectiveness Center in the Bay Area.

I have a Certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) as well as a California Adult Education Credential specializing in ESL.

I have tutored professionals in business communication, including speaking, writing, pronunciation, grammar, interviewing and presentations.

My 15-plus years working in human resources in large companies such as Cisco Systems and Oracle gives me an additional area of expertise that I share with my students: how to successfully communicate in the business world.


Writing

I've recently helped another student via email with several statements of purpose for different graduate programs. In addition to editing, I'm able to provide judgement from my years as a human resources manager as well as teacher.
