I'm a native English speaker, originally from New York, where I grew up and obtained my Bachelor's degree in Biology. I then lived in the UK for 33 years, as well as time in Australia for 9 months and time in Dublin, Ireland for 18 months. I relocated back to the US in May 2018 and now live in Las Vegas. I have been teaching ESL since 1990 and started teaching online in August 2018. I have taught children and adults from many different countries and I really enjoy teaching and helping my students reach their language goals.
BSc- Fordham University- 1986- Biology
TEFL- International House London- 1990
IELTS Intensive certificate- Global Training Resources- April 2019
Teaching offline in language schools and privately, more than 15 years between 1990 and 2012. Online teacher since August 2018.
I can teach the following skills:
- IELTS preparation (you must devote a minimum of 3 months to study for this}
- Business English
- Medical English and vocabulary
- Conversational English
- Accent reduction and pronunciation practice
- Grammar and Vocabulary Improvement
- Job Interview Preparation
- Resume Writing
- Creative Writing
- Either American or British English (or both)
My approach is adaptive. I work with each student individually and assess their needs and listen to their goals and then use resources specific to their level, skills and learning objectives. Most of all I like to make my lessons fun, memorable, entertaining and interactive. I encourage mistakes because they help you to learn and grow.
