If you are eager to express yourself in English with fluency, accuracy, clarity, and confidence, I would love to help you. Mastering the English language is tough, but it can also be great fun. Time spent working towards achievement of your English language goals is a sound investment in your personal, academic, and professional success.

I hold a Master's degree in Adult Education with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) and have over fifteen years of instructional and administrative/advisory experience in the field. In private language schools and in a university setting, I have taught and advised students from all over the globe, from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds.

My greatest strength is my commitment to personalized teaching methods and study practices that ensure continuous progress outside the time we spend together. Mastering English requires you to live the language -- a challenging task if you, like many, are stuck in a translation rut. Together we will break tired old study habits that have, thus far, prevented achievement of your full potential. Sessions will be tailored to your personal interests and specific language goals.

If finding time to work on your English is difficult, consider online tutoring sessions. I would be happy to meet you via the Wyzant online platform (at no cost) to learn more about you and your current challenges and needs. Together, we can discuss how online sessions might be structured within your schedule - giving you a cost and time-efficient way to meet your English language goals.

Note: Conversation practice, accent reduction, proofreading, and editing assistance available. Hourly rate negotiable.

Public Speaking

I can assist non-native English speakers who lack confidence speaking in a public setting because of strongly accented English. I have a master's degree in Adult Education and a concentration in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and years of experience teaching ESL. I have conducted online Accent Reduction lessons with numerous students via the Wyzant platform and I have taught pronunciation skills in private English language schools such as Berlitz, Language Studies International (LSI), and inlingua.

Grammar,

Grammar

As an ESL instructor, I have experience teaching grammar points using both direct and indirect methods. I understand students' desire to find a formula for accurate English production, as well as the need for them to develop an intuitive sense of the language. Letting go of native language interference is quite challenging. Grammar topics may need to be approached from multiple angles before a dramatic "A-ha!" moment or a gradual acceptance of a structure occurs. I have the patience and experience to get you there.
Proofreading,

Proofreading

I am adept at assisting with writing errors related to spelling, grammar, word choice, syntax, and overall organization of ideas -- working with both native and non-native English speakers. If hired to complete a proof-reading assignment, I will go beyond examination of individual words and sentences and provide feedback on the content and organization of your writing. If needed or desired, I will review multiple drafts and schedule time to discuss the assignment by phone or via the Online Platform.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

You may sometimes feel frustration when unable to find the English words to express exactly what you want to say. People understand you but the nuance of meaning you want to convey just isn't coming across. I can help. I have years of experience helping students grow their vocabulary and master commonly used idiomatic expressions. A robust vocabulary is an important component of self-expression -- in the workplace, in school, and in the company of family and friends. Don't let a limited vocabulary prevent your voice from being heard.
