My lessons are always very interactive! You will not just sit and listen to me! If you don't talk -- a lot -- I didn't do my job and you can fire me! Accent reduction and pronunciation are strength areas, especially with Asian languages. Strong skills with business professionals, especially in the high tech industry. We will work on the things that matter to you! Writing, Small Talk, Pronunciation, Vocabulary and maybe some Grammar. Let's have some fun, do some work and expand your English!

About Lori D.

I love teaching! I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Education and have been teaching ESL online to business professionals around the world; particularly in the high-tech field. I have taught English internationally in China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kurdistan and Mozambique for more than 15 years. I love to teach adults. I also really enjoy teaching reading or writing with students at all ages.

Over the last two years, I have taught a lot of pronunciation / accent reduction for my freelancing employer, as well as private students. I'm very flexible and understand that you want to work on your own goals. I guarantee you will make lifelong progress when you work with me.

I have also provided quite a bit of instruction to help non-native English speakers edit their own writing. They're great writers, but may still have some awkward ways of putting sentences together. I can help with that! My students feel proud and satisfied when we are finished editing.

You are welcome to ask me for references. My past and present students are happy to work with me and feel confident to let me know what they want to work on and what changes to make if needed. We have a lot of fun together; I'm able to capture what they've said so we can work on real-time sentence, vocab and pronunciation improvement.

I'm not like the other teachers -- I'm flexible, connected with my students, and willing to try new things. We'll have fun together in every class as you learn new vocabulary, sentence structures, and pronunciation to practice. Let's give it a try!

The lessons with Lori are always helpful and effective.
I have to improve my Business English skills and therefore Lori is the best teacher.
She knows which things need to train and takes the right way to improve my necessary english skills. She also takes care of things like pronouncation, specific business vocabulary and so on.
Up to now I have learned a lot of things to improve my english skills to a significantly higher level. THANKS!

Lori, one of the best teacher I have seen. As a not native English speaker I was thinking I am doing a good job in my English communication, but then started taking classes from Lori and I improved a lot in my English communication. She is one of the teacher who puts all her energy to make sure what ever you are learning you never forgot in life.
Without any second thought you can go ahead and start taking class from her.
She is doing really amazing job in this profession.
I am very thankful for her teaching and she is very good human being .

As a working professional in the airline industry, my role has been revolved around customer support & service for many years as a flight attendant and a gate agent. A friend of mine referred me to Lori given that he has a positive experience in improving his communication skills in English. Because I interacted daily with customers with different language backgrounds, I as non-native English speaker wanted to better communicate with them in a sophisticated way. Lori captured every single incorrectness from me - she is not picky but detail-oriented - and helped me speak more naturally but precisely. Although Lori and I only e-met online, she used a variety of tools to maximize her teaching effectiveness for our class by using Google docs, Skype, useful resources online, etc. Lori was also flexible to accommodate my availability. She is a thoughtful person who uplifts and challenges me, which I really appreciate! You would be fortunate to have her as your English teacher!

It was very fortunate to meet with Lori. I was looking for someone who can help me hone my professional communication skills in English at workplace in both speaking and writing. During class, I experienced many WoW moments because she didn't simply spend our class to find incorrect grammar and misspellings. Instead, Lori fundamentally changed my thought process in my English writing from a cultural perspective so that I don't just mechanically emulate my mother tongue into English. Instead, I was always encouraged to put myself on the American audience shoes in regards to the best optimal story-telling context. Also, she has a very good understanding of difficulties for international folks in English pronunciation. This is one of the beauties you would enjoy when you have Lori as your coach. She just doesn't ask you to mimic her pronunciation. Her pronunciation class is designed to help you understand how to make sounds properly and to reduce accents. Last but not least, Lori is a wonderful person to work with. She is humble, tactful, and generous of spirit. I highly recommend you to start one class to get a sense of what I just said. Meeting her is Believing!

Lori is not only a great teacher, but a dear friend and mentor. She has tons of experience teaching students of different ages (from little kids to adults), with various social and cultural backgrounds, and all over the world (North America, Asia, and Africa)! Her teaching is very because she teaches to not only impart knowledge/skills, but also pass on a good spirit.
