I am a speech-language pathologist clinical fellow, and have been assisting individuals with their speech improvement and English language abilities for over six years.

I provided business English courses and pronunciation training to corporate professionals and students from Asia, South America, Europe and Africa. I then went on to pursue my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology at Queens College in New York.

Jessica, a speech-language pathologist clinical fellow, has been assisting individuals with their speech improvement and English language abilities for over seven years. Previously, Jessica taught English in Italy and worked at the international Berlitz Language School. There, Jessica provided business English courses and pronunciation training to corporate professionals and students from Asia, South America, Europe and Africa.

Jessica also has experience working at a private company with students from elementary through high school in need of extra social skills training, many of whom were on the Autism Spectrum. Jessica particularly enjoys this area of speech-language pathology, as well as assisting with study skills (executive functioning), another field in which she has been professionally trained.

Jessica is also qualified to tutor French and Italian. She graduated with a 4.0 in her double major in French and Italian Language and Literature from the University of Pittsburgh. Jessica has spent the past seven years tutoring these subjects to both children and adults.

I enjoyed studying English in her class!
I wanted to improve my pronunciation and took Takelessons.
She taught me how to pronounce English correctly.
I appreciate it!
