Passionate & Friendly English Teacher with over 20 Years International Experience in Oakland

Methodology

I believe the best way to learn a new language is through interactive lessons and games. All my lessons are student-centered, so you get as many opportunities to speak as possible. Thanks to my international experience I can connect with literally anybody from any place in the world without any problems and teach them a wide range of topics, such as Business English and Conversation, Test preparation, Accent Reduction, Essay writing and even Professional Development. Everybody is different and thanks to my vast experience I can and will always adapt to the preferred pace, level and expectations of each of my students.

Background

During my decades of teaching English I have been fortunate to teach students ranging from age 3 to 93 focusing on a variety of areas in the English Language both in the United Sates as well as internationally, including Mexico and South Korea. To this day I am in regular contact with all of my former students and very excited to see them go on to improve their English skills even more in all of their undertakings, which has been a huge motivation for me. At the moment I teach ESL, Business English and Corporate Private Lessons and I also run my own cultural exchange company that allows people from all around the world to experience American and grow through an immersive experience.
