Teaching Approach

I love teaching English. My lessons are personalized, organized, and fun. My students always feel comfortable and find the time goes by quickly. They enjoy learning with me because I am a fun teacher.

During the first lesson, we will identify exactly what you want to improve and I will design your personalized lessons accordingly. If you would like, I offer activities to do after each lesson that we can discuss in the next lesson, such as watching brief videos or reading articles online.

I am a certified accent reduction instructor and can help you sound more like a native English speaker. I will help you pronounce sounds in English that are difficult for speakers of your language. Our aim is to have your pronunciation be as clear and understandable as possible so that people can understand you and it will be easier for you to understand them.

As a qualified English teacher, I can also help you improve your grammar skills, increase your vocabulary, and teach you phrasal verbs.

I can also help you prepare to pass IELTS, TOEFL, FCE and other internationally recognized English proficiency tests, have successful job interviews, give great presentations, and, I can proofread your writing in English.

Let's work together to make you sound more like a native English speaker.

Mary is helping me to improve my pronunciation. She records me and adapts the lesson based on my exact needs. On top of that, we have excellent conversations.

Mrs. Brummit is a wonderful teacher. The structure of the lesson was very well organized, and I managed to learn new things from the first lesson. I liked that I was offered to make a small assignment to find out my problems in English.
