Bio

As a native English speaker and writer, my command of my language comes natural to me. I make learning English a pleasant and fun experience. You will feel relaxed and accepted in my presence. I make everyone I meet feel at ease and yet I instill a confidence in them as I use lots of praise. You will come away not only learning more English, you will also feel good about yourself and your life.

As a native English speaker and writer, my command of my language comes natural to me. I make learning English a pleasant and fun experience. You will feel relaxed and accepted in my presence. I make everyone I meet feel at ease and yet I instill a confidence in them as I use lots of praise. You will come away not only learning more English, you will also feel good about yourself and your life.

Everyday I help a Mandarin Chinese man learn English. So far, it has been two months of speaking for at least an hour a day. We speak in a causal manner talking about things that are of interest to him. All of our lessons include conversations about interesting topics that apply directly to his life. I listen to his stories and correct him where necessary. He listens to me about my life and asks me questions. Our entire lesson involves the exchange of pertinent and interesting content so that he doesn't even realize that he is having a lesson. This method allows him to not only improve his speaking ability, but also to increase his level of comprehension. By having this kind of interaction, he knows if his English is correct by my response. I correct him gently and give him examples. My approach to teaching is always kind and considerate as I am extremely patient. His eagerness to improve his English from our conversations and his joy of learning has influenced me to become an ESL/ESOL teacher. Because of him, I am in the process of obtaining my TESOL certification.

As a natural teacher, I have the ability to understand people and to be helpful. I will take you from your current level and encourage you in a harmonious way to reach for the stars. It is my pleasure to meet you and serve your learning needs in a way that makes learning fun and easy.

I am eager to be of service to you and help you on your journey to learn English. I am flexible and willing to work within your schedule.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

I like that she explains the language, terms and grammar in a way I can understand. She also gives you resources you can easily obtain to keep learning. I will continue to use her.
