I'm a longtime ESL professional with over 15 years of teaching experience. I've got a TEFL certification and a Masters in Education from Framingham State University. During the course of my teaching career, I've had the opportunity to work with almost all age and ability levels.

The most rewarding part of my work is watching students overcome insecurity and limiting beliefs about their ability and potential. I'm thrilled to play a part in helping you on your way to securing the job of your dreams, better serving your English speaking clientele, getting into a top-notch academic program or just traveling the world with a sense of confidence.

I like to hone in on a few of your most urgent language learning goals and develop an individualized plan to get you on target with your English. We can polish your CV or interview skills, work on your presentations, focus on industry specific vocabulary and yes, even revise grammar and help you pass a proficiency exam.

Most importantly, you'll begin to feel more at ease about speaking. Many people are fantastic learners of foreign languages until they have to open their mouths and speak! It's such a common problem, and one that I have definitely experienced myself as a foreign language student. Relax, we can work on that!

You can expect to begin seeing improvements in a few weeks if you're ready to put in the work. I'm looking forward to meeting you and learning about your reasons for wanting to improve your English! Let's get started!

Amanda is a fantastic teacher! She is professional, caring, understanding, patient and most of all full of ideas. She helped me to prepare for and pass the FCE exam. I also made huge progress with my speaking skills and fell in love with English to such an extent that I graduated from English philology and became English teacher myself. I can recommend Amanda to everybody.

Amanda is a great teacher! During my lessons we've mostly talked (she could always come up with some interesting topics to chat about) and as a result now I have no problem with speaking at all - I don't feel intimidated or embarassed when I have to speak english, either face to face or in front of the audience. We've also did some exercises on not so well known parts of the language, for example proverbs. Interesting conversations, great attitude and professional knowledge of english, from a native speaker perspective is what makes learning with Amanda a really pleasant and enriching experience. Five out of five!
