Professional English teacher based in Toronto, Canada with more than 10 years of teaching experience

Methodology

I approach each student differently, depending on their English fluency needs. So before we begin working together, I will offer you a link to my free online English placement test, which will help to determine your overall English level, and will show what areas you still need to improve. And by the way, all my classes are online via Skype and other video conferencing platforms, which means I am NOT able to meet you in person.

Background

I am a professional native speaking English teacher, and have been teaching English online and in the classroom for more than 10 years. I have TESOL certification and am also a graduate of the University of Toronto. Whether you're an intermediate or more advanced English learner, I will help you to improve your English speaking skills and vocabulary, by reading and discussing interesting articles about global issues, business, and culture. I can also help you with pronunciation, accent reduction, Business English, IELTS, and job interview preparation. I love meeting new people from all over the world, and my goal is to help you become more fluent in English as quickly and effectively as possible. So if this is your goal too, let's start working together!
