I help professionals learn the English they need to conduct business confidently.

I am an energetic and enthusiastic teacher who cares about each of my students. I believe that learning doesn’t have to be boring to be effective, even when teaching adults. I look for creative ways to make learning fun and interesting and keep my students engaged. I like to build relationships with my students in order to make them feel valued and important. Getting to know my students also allows me to adapt lesson plans to center around things they are interested in, which leads to better attention and understanding.

Before I was an English teacher, I was both a lawyer and a law professor, with years of experience in the areas of business and tax law. During my legal career, the thing that I am most proud of is the people I have helped. To succeed as a lawyer and as a law professor, you must be a good listener, be patient, and be a problem-solver. You must be organized and prepared, but also be flexible and able to adapt when plans fall apart. Using these skills, I have helped people start new businesses, provided advice on compliance with laws, negotiated contracts on behalf of corporate clients, and helped law students understand difficult material. I now look forward to using these skills to help my clients on SkimaTalk.

Teaching Specialty:

Writing › Essay Writing

I have helped many people, both native English speakers and those for whom English is a second language, write essays, term papers, resumes and cover letters. I can help you find your voice and give you feedback to enable you to write powerfully and professionally.

Business English Basics › Advanced

Do you already have a good grasp of the English language, but want to be able to do more? Do you want to negotiate business transactions in English? Would you like to understand complex contractual terms, laws, rules, and regulations written in English? Are you preparing for a speech or important presentation in English? These are not easy tasks, but I can coach you to success!

Business English Basics › General

English is the universal business language. Whatever your English language skills, I can help you learn what you will need to communicate in English with confidence. I can also help you understand business etiquette and professional norms practiced in the US.
