About me

THE ART OF AMERICAN CONVERSATION

*Pronunciation and Accent Reduction Expert*

Hello Friend~

Thank you for reading my Bio.

I am from sunny California, born and raised in the US.

My profile as an English teacher is unique:

*I have professional training in Pronunciation and Accent Reduction.

*I specialize in Intermediate (B1) to Advanced speakers

*Teaching English as a Second Language is my FULL-TIME job.

Do you want to sound more like a native speaker but don't know how?

Most of my Intermediate (B1) to Advanced students have NEVER been taught correct pronunciation by a trained PHONICS teacher.

They are also using outdated, formal English taught from foreign textbooks.

As you probably realize, these expressions are not typically used in the real world.

I will help you form sentences and phrases that native speakers use in Business and everyday life.

I hold certification from the prestigious US National Tutoring Association and have over 20+ years professional experience.

I taught downtown CHICAGO for a wide range of INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS clients from all over the world.

What is the most important key to learning a language? Humor and a sense of freedom to make mistakes.

Let's have FUN, LAUGH and get started!

I understand the frustrations involved in learning a language. I have a degree in French, with honors, and have studied at the Sorbonne in Paris where I taught business clients and university level students.

LESSONS

*I provide FREE support material

*I provide a Lesson Preparation document before each lesson

*I create a Lesson Follow-Up after each lesson which summarizes corrections

I like her lessons. They are always very well structured. She will prepare a topic for each lesson, and focus on various areas to improve - reading, comprehension, new vocabulary. Recommend!!
