Intensive, interactive, and engaging!

Most English classes fall into the trap of using the same, decades old, highly ineffective, traditional teaching methods. Too long, too expensive, and too much lecturing and theory leave students bored, tired, and gives them very little to show for it when it’s all over.

My intensive, advanced training courses are designed to completely revolutionize your view on how to learn. I specialize in practical methodology, not theory.

40 brain-based teaching methods based on the latest red-hot research on how the brain really learns. With these practical language acquisition strategies you will understand how to stay interested and awake, and accelerate your language learning.

Hands-on practice sessions

Start using my methods immediately and get valuable feedback to hone your new skills.

Classes are taught and infused with my experience of teaching for over 15 years in multiple countries. The sessions are enthusiastic, dynamic, energetic, and filled with humor. Whether you are an experienced learner or have little or no formal education, my courses are for you.

My teaching methods are specific to each student. In the first lesson, students increase their retention by 33%. Memorization, grammar tenses, comprehension, reading, pronunciation, accent training, correct word usage, conversational ability, logical development, paraphrasing, idioms, idea mapping and other areas will be understood quickly.

One student commented, "I understood more English in one lesson than in the four years at my University while majoring in English!"

1. EXAMINATION PREPARATION: ACT, SAT, CAE, CPE, FCE, GMAT, GRE, IELTS, PET, TOEFL

Lesson Content: 1.) Reading, 2.) Use of English, 3.) Writing, 4.) Listening, 5.) Speaking, 6.) Exam, and 7.) Evaluation

All of my students have passed successfully the exam after taking my EXAM PREP course.

After completion of this course, students have been admitted to the University of their choice.

You will be helped to grow in areas that need improvement and further practice. This course is will assist in reaching the goal of further education.

Test taking is very difficult and stressful, if you are unprepared. When we are ready, it is not difficult and it is less stressful.

What do you need to do? Have someone who will prepare you.

Do not skip words, ignore parts of words, or exchange one word for another. Pronounce the words correctly.

Take note of punctuation.

Careful and correct reading is the basic foundation of a language and reduction of accent.

Express words so that they can easily be understood. This involves proper use of the speech organs and understanding of the structure of words.

Say individual words correctly.

When reading aloud, put special emphasis on the principal ideas in the entire body of material being read, not merely in individual sentences. Your message will be easier to remember if the principal ideas are emphasized.
