About Mona

I am a CELTA certified English language instructor who helps adult learners access and master the English language in a stress-free, stimulating learning environment. My goal is to help you communicate confidently and effectively in English.

I have worked with learners of diverse ethnic backgrounds in the US and overseas to help them improve their speaking, reading and writing in English. I appreciate the challenges of learning English as a non-native speaker and I am highly attentive to the learning needs of absolute beginners as well as more advanced learners. I strive to make learning interesting and fun, using a learner-centric teaching approach.

Tutoring is an extremely rewarding experience and I love being able to facilitate learning. I'm always inspired by my learners' growth and personal commitment to improving over the course of our lessons.

I have a Certificate in English Language Training to Adults (CELTA).

My lessons are tailored to learners needs and include:
- Public speaking
- Business and professional English
- Conversational English including idioms, phrasal verbs, American slang
- Vocabulary, synonyms, word choice
- Grammar, tenses and punctuation
- Reading and comprehension
- Pronunciation
- Accent neutralization (upon request)
- Writing, sentence fluency
- Industry specific language: Sales, Marketing, Public Relations and Communications

My goal is to build your confidence in speaking, writing and understanding the English language in a transparent, stress-free and encouraging format. Reach out to me to see how we can work together to help you communicate effectively and confidently in any setting!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker with a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). I have extensive experience coaching relocated business professionals, gradate students, and non-native English adult speakers wishing to improve their speaking and daily language, lexicon, pronunciation, listening, public speaking/presenting skills, reading and writing.

Proofreading

As an ESL instructor with a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), and a communications consultant who has serviced Fortune 500 companies for three years, I do a significant amount of copyediting and proofreading as part of my day to day job - speeches, newsletters, business stories, press releases and news announcements and other content. As an ESL instructor I support business professionals, university and graduate students and clients - including absolute beginners and advanced English speakers - revise and edit presentations, business reports, research papers, admissions essays and coursework regularly.

Public Speaking

As a communications consultant, part of my job involves coaching my clients in the art of public speaking such as ahead of product launches, media activations, roundtables and other public events. I have extensive experience preparing and delivering presentations and public speaking, having pitched for new business and frequently presented to the likes of global consumer and b2b technology, automotive, pharmaceutical and infrastructure investment leaders. Additionally, having participated in PR conferences and seminars related to communications and audience engagement throughout my career, I learned the most effective tips and strategies to becoming an effective public speaker from industry leaders, which I passionately share with and use to coach my clients.
