« Kara has been my English teacher for over a year and she is the best! First of all, she is a good listener. She is such an open minded person so I can talk about everything with her. She makes me feel comfortable speaking English so I don’t get nervous and shy when I speak with natives like I did before. Secondly, she is not only a good listener, but also a sharp listener. She catches and corrects my pronunciation and grammar mistakes and it has helped me a lot to be able to communicate with natives stress free. Also she gives you a better idea of how to speak natural English like natives do. I get more confident when I speak with natives by using sentences that Kara taught me. They are real and live English expressions! Furthermore, she keeps me motivated whenever I get frustrated. As a language learner, she speaks Spanish, French and now she is learning Korean! She understands how I feel and encourages me not to give up and to carry on. I truly feel lucky to have her as my English teacher and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way if you choose Kara! »

ESL Teacher, Speak American English Like A Native, Have Confidence and Feel Proud of your Ability

Methodology

In class, I will help you:

- Improve beyond an intermediate level by refining your language learning routine.

- Improve your pronunciation & intonation by learning how certain sounds change and connect to one another when spoken out loud.

- Improve your speaking so you sound natural. I will coach you through this process so you speak how a native would speak.

- Improve your storytelling ability by receiving instant feedback from me.

You are going to learn so much and we will have fun doing this together, promise. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Background

Do you struggle to understand fast-spoken American English?

Do Americans struggle understanding you because of your foreign accent?

Do you want to speak natural English so you can build strong, lasting relationships with Americans? Or be able to watch movies/tv shows without subtitles?

I’m Kara, a native English speaker and I can help you improve your ability in understanding fast-spoken speech, and speaking natural American English so you can have confidence when interacting with Americans.

I received my TEFL certification in May 2019 and have been teaching English to Korean and Japanese students in my community since April 2019. I also spent two months in early 2020 abroad in Caen, France where I taught English to a family of four.

Kara has been my English teacher for over a year and she is the best!
First of all, she is a good listener. She is such an open minded person so I can talk about everything with her. She makes me feel comfortable speaking English so I don’t get nervous and shy when I speak with natives like I did before.
Secondly, she is not only a good listener, but also a sharp listener.

Also she gives you a better idea of how to speak natural English like natives do. I get more confident when I speak with natives by using sentences that Kara taught me.

I truly feel lucky to have her as my English teacher and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way if you choose Kara!

Kara has shared our life in France for 2 months. She had to teach English to all of us in the family (the parents and 2 children - 11 and 17 years old). She was very patient, especially with the youngest of us... We all improved and now play speaking English to each other.
Thank you Kara! We really wish to see you soon and to continue to visit Normandy with you! (and speak English)
