Experienced English as a Second Language Teacher for college prep or business English.

Methodology

I like to make learning English as fun as possible: listening and speaking can be done with movies or music, reading can go along with movies, writing can be for fun to express yourself or more academic (like a research project) that is connected to an oral presentation. Learning is fun and it is my passion!

Background

I have taught over seas and in the U.S. for 20 years. I taught over 5000 students in small classes. I can help you build vocabulary, prepare for TOEFL or TOEIC (business English test), or Academic English for writing, reading, and giving strong presentations.
