Hello! My name is Heide, and I would love to help you accomplish your English language goals!
I have been teaching and tutoring English as Second Language (ESL) since 1998. My specialties are conversation and public speaking as well as grammar, reading, and writing. I would love to help put you on the right track so we can address your needs right away with stimulating, challenging and FUN lessons that will not only improve your ability to speak and comprehend English more easily, but will also improve your grammar and writing skills. In the end, you will have increased self-confidence in English whether you are presenting publicly or writing papers for a class.
I am confident that my teaching approach will benefit you, because it is focused on your specific needs. I design lessons that will motivate you to learn in a realistic, yet enjoyable way! I can help you reach your goals! We can meet in person, online (via Skype) or some combination of both, depending on your needs.
I look forward to hearing from you soon so we can get started!
