Introduction:

Professional teacher specializing in accent reduction, conversation, and grammar

I am TEFL/TESOL certified native English speaker with five years of professional teaching experience. Through conversation, we will work together to improve your grammar, pronunciation, and confidence in speaking English. My areas of expertise are Philosophy (M.A., B.A.) and Biology (B.Sc.), but we can converse about any topics that interest you. I can also help improve your writing. I hope to meet you soon!

Teaching Specialty:

English Basics › Grammar

Correct grammar is the foundation of good speaking and writing. I have studied Thai, Spanish, and Sanskrit, so I understand the challenges that come with learning a language with different grammatical structures. I will correct your errors using the Skype chat function so that you will have notes to refer back to later. I am happy to explain any complex grammar rules that you may have questions about.

Topics › News Articles

If you choose this type of class, I will send you a news article and ask you to read it out loud. After each paragraph, I will correct your pronunciation and explain any words or phrases that you don't understand. We will finish off with a conversation about the news article. This is a great way to improve your pronunciation, vocabulary, and confidence in expressing your ideas!

English Basics › General

I have taught English to students of all ages and skill levels. I can teach you the basics of pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary to set the foundation for speaking, reading, writing, and listening.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I will pay close attention to your pronunciation and research the differences in your native language in order to customize a class to your specific needs. I believe that it is more important to help a student make their accent comprehensible than to attempt to eliminate it completely. After all, foreign accents can be charming as long as they are understood.

Everyday English › General

We can role-play everyday situations such as going to the store, ordering at a restaurant, making introductions, or any other situations that you would like!

Writing › General

Using the Skype chat function, you can send me a piece of writing for us to edit together. This can be very useful if you need to send any professional emails, applications, cover letters, etc.

Topics › Discussion

We can discuss whatever topics are interesting to you! If you don't have any ideas, I have a long list of interesting conversation topics prepared.

Other › Other

We can talk about Science (B.Sc. Biology) or Philosophy (M.A. and B.A.) - my specialties!
