I can help you realize your English language goals for career or social advancement with lessons that are designed specifically for you.
Some students need to develop their vocabulary in a very specific area such as travel, health care, finance, or technology.
In addition, business students often need to develop their social conversation skills to assist them in developing and maintaining their business and working relationships.
Many students are more advanced in their reading and writing skills than their listening and speaking. Communication by email may be relatively easy, but discussions on the phone or in-person can be very difficult.
I am also familiar with the American and British variants of English for learners who must deal with organizations or business associates on both sides of the Atlantic.
Certain sounds in English may not be used in the learner's native language.
Whether they are Italian, Brazilian, or Chinese, students have their own individual pronunciation challenges. That is why pronunciation, word stress, and the rhythm of spoken English is a big component of each lesson.
I also emphasize the importance of phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, and slang that are a huge part of communicating comfortably in English.
If you are an intermediate or advanced English speaker, I am your ideal teacher.
