Would you like to speak and understand English well? Would you like English classes designed for yourself, your child, or your teen? Do you need help with writing or reading?

Would you like to speak and understand English well? Would you like English classes designed for yourself, your child, or your teen? Do you need help with writing or reading?

After getting my university degree and teaching certificate, I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in classrooms for over 14 years. Since 2017, I've been teaching ESL online. I have taught all ages (age 3 and up), all levels, and all language skills -- speaking, listening, reading, writing, vocabulary, and pronunciation. Students learn new words and speak in sentences in every class, starting with the first class. I tailor each lesson to the student's needs, learning style and interests, and I make each class a positive experience.

Learning a language can and should be fun. When it's fun, you use the language without thinking about it, you look forward to classes, and you remember more. To bring real-life language and listening practice into the lesson, I plan many of my lessons around short videos. You can then watch the videos on your own later to continue practicing English.

I can also help you with writing or reading even if English is your first language. In addition to learning how to teach these skills as an ESL teacher, I have a degree in Creative Writing and professional writing experience.

Do you have any questions? Please contact me, and I'll be happy to answer them.

Reading is more than understanding each word. You need to understand sentence structure, paragraph structure, how to guess the meanings of words from their context, ways to understand the main idea even before you start reading, and more. If you'd like help with reading for yourself or your child, contact me.
