I can help you obtain the speaking, reading, and writing skills needed to make your English polished and professional. I was born into a military family and was taught early the benefits of consistent, positive learning habits. Traveling worldwide has also enabled me to connect with individuals from various cultures and understand how diverse people are and how learning can be different for each one. I love to bring my creative arts background into the mix to make each lesson a dynamic learning adventure. My theory is: Learning does not have to be drab and boring. We can learn and still have lots of fun. I have connected with students on a number of levels through my work with public school, private school, homeschool and online. I have worked with pre-K students all the way to adult and cherish the relationships I have created with each and every one. My goal is your success. Book a class and let's get started!
About Loraine D.

So you want to speak English better? I can help. I am a native English speaker who has been teaching for 20+ years. I have taught in the public school system, worked in the private school sector, homeschooled, and am a certified ESL teacher. I am also a published author, speaker, and coach. I have traveled to numerous cities worldwide, have met many types of people and so can easily adapt to different personalities and learning styles. I like to make learning fun!

She comes up with creative and innovative ways to help you understand each subject. Having her as a teacher is not just a lesson but a whole experience. I wish I could give her 10 stars.
