Introduction:

I specialize in Business English, IELTS, TOEFL, and Accent Reduction

Do you have the TOEFL/IELTS exam coming up? I can help you with the speaking parts of these exams and help you achieve the score you need. We'll discuss strategy, feedback, and I'll give you the guidance and help you need every step of the way. I've helped numerous students from all over the world to prepare for these and other exams such as the TOEIC, Duolingo English Test, OPIC, and CELPIP.

One area especially love working with is pronunciation and accent reduction. Do you have difficulty produced certain American English sounds, such as the R sound? or maybe TH? I can help to get a more native-like accent and sound more confident. We'll also work on intonation, syllable stress, connected speech and vocal placement.

I've worked as an ESL tutor for almost 2 years and I've enjoyed teaching hundreds of students from such places as Japan, South Korea, China, Brazil, Turkey, and Mexico. I've also assisted students with Business English and to prepare for job and college entrance exams. I hold a TESOL certification. I'm a kind and patient tutor. Making mistakes is how we grow and learn!
