I help intermediate and advanced English speakers go from fluent to nearly native.

I am a writer, educator, curriculum developer, and English coach who has over 8 years of teaching experience. Therefore, I understand the importance of being an effective and efficient communicator.

I help my students reach their highest potential by focusing on their individual needs. For example, many students are concerned with sounding as natural and fluent as possible. I can help with that.

There are also students who want to learn specialized vocabulary or idioms. I can help get you up to speed with that as well.

Often times there comes a point when an advanced speaker wants to refine their skills in order to pursue business or career opportunities; or reach a lifelong personal goal. My goal is to help my students go from advanced to nearly native. My approach is based on the individual.

About Jennifer N.

Words create worlds and that is why communication is so important. After all, it's how we relate to one another, and it’s how we accomplish our goals.

I bring forth my gifts into the world with my work as a writer, English language coach, curriculum developer, and reading tutor. I like to incorporate personal development and practical skills into whatever I am teaching. Whether it's ESL, reading, writing or life skills - I try to bring home the message that healthy communication (both with ourselves and with others) is very important.

I have a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Spanish. I am TESOL certified and I'm currently enrolled in a Master's of Education program. I am a mindfulness practitioner and lifelong learner.

My Teaching Philosophy

Everyone has gifts and talents that they bring to the table. Some find these gifts easily and others don’t. But the key is that we all need to be taught in a way that reflects our internal needs. When learning is centered around the learner, then miracles happen. My job is to guide people to their own inner genius.
