Introduction:

I help you to use English meaningfully and speak confidently!

Do you want to develop your conversation skills? Let me help! I'm Rose, a "kiwi" from New Zealand who wants to help you improve your English!

My classes focus on developing fluency in listening and speaking, while growing your vocabulary and building confidence.

Free conversation lessons begin with an informal conversation (15 - 20 minutes) followed by a structured feedback session (5 - 10 minutes) where we look at your strengths, areas to improve, and useful expressions.

I love meeting students online and really enjoy getting to know you. Conversation lessons are a great way to learn about one another's culture, lifestyle, and worldview. I look forward to talking to you!
