There is more time available than what is shown on my calendar. Please email me to discuss your preferred time. 20 extra minutes during your first lesson to allow us to get to know each other better.

I have a degree in English Literature from Boston University. I have written for a magazine, a newspaper, and am currently a City Correspondent for a travel website. I love giving the love of reading and writing to students. I haven't worked with a student yet that didn't love reading after taking lessons with me. I meet the student where he or she is at. I do not force Shakespeare on students with no interest in Shakespeare. I want to create the love of reading and writing, so we read and write about things that the student is interested in. This is how we become able to then read and write about things that are assigned to us in class. I will help all students master the art of reading literature and writing about it.

Micah has been very good at giving me what I need to improve my Spanish and encouraging me to stretch and do more. She has great patience and is very helpful during the lessons.

The most difficult aspect of learning a new language for adults is fear of making an embarrassing mistake. Micah and other teachers in the Fluency Corp have created a supportive and comfortable environment where I am able to utilize our newly acquired vocabulary words and grammar into simple conversations, which is exactly my goal. The consistent progress I experience after each lesson is a big motivating factor that propels me forward.

Being multi-lingual myself (French and English), and German (10 years), and Spanish (3 years), I can teach English as an additional language to whomever masters another or other languages. In any case, I will want to understand your background and needs to tailor my lessons for you. Happy to talk to you :)

I’m a graduate of the University of Southern California, with my MAT in TESOL, and a B.A. in Dramatic Arts/Entrepreneurship. I’m thankful to have been awarded USC’s Jack Nicholson Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Actor. I recently finished a 16 month contract teaching ESL in Busan, South Korea. So far, I've taught over 2,400 ESL classes abroad and enjoy applying learning theories in real-time. Equipped with the latest research in ESL teaching, I use theatre arts to teach reading strategies, pronunciation, vocabulary, effective academic writing, and speaking.
