English teacher with 25 years of experience offering lessons at homes in San Diego or online

Methodology

My teaching method is student centered and I work hard to give students the tools they need to express themselves. Lessons are always planned and organized, beginning with learning new phrases or vocabulary, speaking warm up, and ending with a review of everything covered.

Background

I am a professional English teacher who has been helping students since 1994. I have taught literally thousands of students from all over the world improve their reading, writing, listening, grammar, and speaking skills. I am especially good at helping students prepare for tests like IELTS, Cambridge, and TOEFL.
