ESL tutor with international experience ready to connect with you in Peterborough, Ontario

Methodology

I like the study of English to be fun and natural. I can help you with grammar and the nuances of spoken English, but you will learn the most by enjoying yourself and practicing with the things you enjoy doing, such as reading, watching videos, and listening to music!

Background

I am a Political Studies graduate from Trent University who has international experience teaching ESL, as well as experience in digital media and financial services. I always enjoy an interesting conversation about a variety of topics. I speak English, Portuguese, and French.
