I have an MA in applied linguistics/ESL and a BA in journalism. I have been teaching English as a Second Language at Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia since 2011, and I currently instruct international students in the university's Stetson School of Business and Economics.

Prior to completing my MA, I worked in corporate communications for 15 years. My professional duties included writing, editing and proofreading publications, client correspondence and press releases, and making oral presentations. Hence, my specialties include both written and oral business communication, grammar and pronunciation (accent reduction).

I also specialize in TOEFL and IELTS test prep and have a deep understanding of these tests. I provide highly customized lessons, focusing on your areas of need and fitting to your personality. I will show you how to use all resources available to you so that you can improve your English language skills even after we are no longer working together.

I know that learning is facilitated when the learner is comfortable so I try to keep my lessons light and fun, but I do give homework!
