Introduction:

I specialize in basic to advanced levels of grammar as well as vocabulary, slang, and expressions.

Hello students! I am here to help you learn how to speak English with confidence. I can help you improve your writing skills, pronunciation, and teach you new vocabulary as well as slang words. I also love to chat and exchange ideas if you want to practice more conversational English.

I have degrees in film studies and costume design and I currently work in freelance illustration.
I have taught english in Luxembourg and I have also coached volleyball to non english speakers in the Dominican republic.

I now live in Colombia where I love to attend language exchanges with Spanish speakers and learn how to sound more like a native speaker.

So if you want to sound more like a native English speaker, please come talk with me!

I look forward to speaking with you soon!
