Overview

Hi there!

My name is Cindy and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching private lessons since the year 2000 and I love helping my students learn to speak American conversational English, gain self-confidence to speak and especially that they have fun while learning. I am flexible, have a great sense of humor and make learning English enjoyable!

My teaching style uses the student-centered University of Cambridge (CELTA) teaching method. My classes are interesting and relevant.

I am also a TOEFL Tutor and use the accredited TOEFL materials in my curriculum. The goal is for you to learn strategies to help you raise your TOEFL scores and to practice using actual previous TOEFL material.

I have taught many different nationalities including those from:

Thailand
India
Morocco
Romania
Latin America
China
Korea
Kazakhstan
Saudi Arabia
Sudan
Russia
... just to name a few.

I look forward to helping you reaching your goals!

Excellent instructor! She is kind and clear. She has lots of patience and makes sure you understand the material/lessons. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, I highly recommend her!
