Signing these last few months with Magen has been amazing! I have loved every minute I spent with her through zoom. She does an amazing job at giving you a lot of tools and resources to grow your knowledge outside of what she teaches you. She is very receptive to how you as an individual learn which is super great and makes the lesson feel that much more personable. Magen has made me even more passionate to pursue learning sign language. She has also set me up to be successful because of the amazing teacher she is. Thank you so much Magen, and to anyone looking to learn ASL, Magen is the best teacher around!!

I help intermediate and advanced English speakers go from fluent to nearly native.

I am a writer, educator, curriculum developer, and English coach who has over 8 years of teaching experience. Therefore, I understand the importance of being an effective and efficient communicator.

I help my students reach their highest potential by focusing on their individual needs. For example, many students are concerned with sounding as natural and fluent as possible. I can help with that.

There are also students who want to learn specialized vocabulary or idioms. I can help get you up to speed with that as well.

Often times there comes a point when an advanced speaker wants to refine their skills in order to pursue business or career opportunities; or reach a lifelong personal goal. My goal is to help my students go from advanced to nearly native. My approach is based on the individual.

About Jennifer

Words create worlds and that is why communication is so important. After all, it's how we relate to one another, and it’s how we accomplish our goals. I bring forth my gifts into the world with my work as a writer, English language coach, curriculum developer, and reading tutor. I like to incor
