What are your goals? I want to help you! I customize classes just for your needs and interests. I will quickly increase your confidence, clarity and accuracy.

Methodology

Each student is unique.
When I first meet a student, I listen to their needs and goals, at the same time as I assess their skills, and then I suggest a plan.
I customize all of my materials based on their skill level, interests and goals. For example, if a student wants to reduce their accent, I analyze their problems and use a variety of activities to teach the sound and then use it in a variety of ways.
I try a variety of techniques and approaches to see what works best for the individual student.
Because I have a Master's in TESOL, I have the knowledge of theory and best practice so you will save time and money, and improve quickly!

Background

I am a professional business and academic ESL instructor at Pace University and Executive Language Training. This is my full time career. I have an MBA in Finance from NYU, a BA in Spanish and Politics from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s in TESOL. Prior to transitioning into teaching, I worked at Citibank, New York Life Insurance Co and Deloitte consulting in finance, strategy, and internal consulting for 15 years.
I have been teaching academic and business English to students at all levels of proficiency in college for 8 years. I teach speaking, accent reduction, writing, grammar, and test preparation (TOEIC and TOEFL).
I can use your materials or develop my own customized to what you need and want to accomplish.
I am patient, give constructive feedback, and a great listener. By working with me I promise that you will communicate more accurately, clearly, and concisely in English and I will build your confidence.
