Want to improve your speaking confidence or writing skills? Having trouble learning English alone? Think learning English is important, but don't know where to begin? Let's talk.

Your lessons will be customised to suit your particular needs and wants as well as your learning style. You can expect that lessons will be:

-Fun and engaging
-Designed based on YOU
-Informal, humorous, and easygoing

I can help you with...
-Conversation/speaking and listening
-Pronunciation and Intonation
-Reading and writing
-Grammar
-Business English
-Test preparation (IELTS)
-Document editing/proofreading
-Job Interview Preparation
-Resume building
-Homework help
-And more!

Want homework? Homework can be assigned based on what we discover during our lessons about which language skills could be improved. Homework will also be tailored to your individual needs and desires for learning.

Interested in improving your English writing for IELTS, work, school, or any other purpose? Join the popular and growing writing program! There are two options for this program:

1. Journal Writing

1-7 times per week, you will write a paragraph or two about your day or about something happening in your life--what you did, what you are thinking about, a project you are working on, etc. I will edit your writing, showing you not only grammar and spelling mistakes, but also suggesting alternative sentences to show how you can express your ideas in an eloquent, native-sounding, colloquial way. As you integrate the suggestions over time, your writing will improve more and more!

2. Assigned Writing Topics

Under this program, you will write about topics I assign based on what you want/need to work on. For example, if your goal is to improve the emails you write at work, this is what we'll work on. If your goal is to gain vocabulary, you'll be given a list of vocabulary words, definitions, and examples and a topic to write about, with the instruction to use the new vocabulary words in your writing. The assignments are personalised based on YOU.

ABOUT ME:

Although I am new on Take Lessons, for the past 5 years I have been teaching students of many ages, backgrounds and abilities both online and in person. By now I've taught hundreds of students from all over the world! I love this job for 2 reasons:

1. I love to travel! I have been traveling and living overseas for most of the past 8 years and have spent time living, volunteering, working, and exploring all over Asia, Europe, Australia, and more. So far I have been to 30 countries! This job allows me to travel, which I love.

2. When I teach online, it's almost like traveling without ever having to leave my computer. The world comes to me! Sometimes I think that I learn just as much as the students just from talking with people from different places and backgrounds.

Aside from teaching English and traveling, I like: yoga, meditation/mindfulness practice, visiting eco-communities, bouldering and rock climbing, baking and cooking, and board games.

Whoever and wherever you are, it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope to talk with you soon!
