Improve communication skills in business, research, and social interactions

Hello, thank you for visiting my profile. I am happy to have the opportunity to work with you on your English communication goals.

I focus on helping you express your ideas, build vocabulary, phrases, and engage in discussions and casual conversations around various topics, such as business, academic research, or a personal area of interest.

Our lessons depend on your goals. We will aim to improve your ability in conveying your thoughts in English and engaging with others. We can also work on improving your writing skills. I will tailor our time specific to your goals and areas of growth.

Currently, I work at the University of Hawai'i teaching English. I also worked in a number of different fields from real estate to the nonprofit sector. I have also lived and worked in a number of countries and found it is important to understand cross cultural differences in communication as well. As the very nature of how we communicate varies from culture to culture and thus impacts the effectiveness of our business negotiations, presentations, and social interactions.

My focus is not on grammar although that is a part of it. My main goal is to help you communicate in English not only speak. Thus, the focus will be to get you communicating effectively in order to express yourself in a more nuanced way so you can have more complex discussions and interactions. Particularly, I focus on business situations and academics. Of course, personal interest topics and hobbies can be included.

For business we develop communication skills for you to discuss your profession, negotiations, conflict management, drafting correspondence and reports as well as communication for interviews, meetings, and conference calls.

For academics, we will work on discussing research, preparing presentations, teaching material, articles, and summaries so you can articulate your research in English effectively.

For personal interest we can focus on a wider array of topics that you are curious about in order to build vocabulary and communication skills so you can feel confident during conversations.

In order to accomplish a broader vocabulary and capability of speaking it is important during our first lesson to get to know your learning goals which is why I will focus on asking you questions, assessing your English level, and then we can develop a plan of action for us to continue improving your fluency. I want to work with you to understand your learning objectives and how we can use our time most effectively. We will develop a plan together to use resources from your professional life so you can see improvement directly. Thus, it is important for you to share with me your objectives and what you would like to achieve with SkimaTalk so we can monitor your progress and work towards your goal.

To get started choose a time that works for you and I´ll be in touch. Feel free to ask any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.
