About Micah B.

I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and reach your goals just as I have. I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve. I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish. This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more. I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language. I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life. This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that. I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies. How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more. One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.

Micah is an excellent and outstanding coach. She focuses on improving the practical aspects of everyday speech. Her teaching methods are easy to practice and are effective. She is patient and understands how people from different cultures speak. This makes her instruction very useful and relevant to the student. I highly recommend her for language / accent training.

No one ever told me before what I was saying wrong, and Micah would correct me so that I could improve. She has specialized trademarked drills that she has created so that we train my muscles to move exactly with the true sounds of English as opposed to accent courses that show you the sounds alone. No sounds are said by themselves, so we do drills that incorporate full sentences so that I sound more like a native speaker. She even created Sound Like Americans Accent bootcamp course, and she gave me that for free that I use for the rest of my life and follow the 2-minute drills every day. We also worked on presentations so that I could improve my pronunciation for the exact words that I would be using in my meetings with clients.

This is a level 4 out of 6 total levels to test for complete fluency in French. This is the nationally recognized test for being able to work in a French-speaking environment. I believe it is important to continue learning languages in order to understand my students. This is a conversational level of French, and I will take my level 3 test this summer. I am dedicated to language learning and cultural awareness.

ITTO Teaching Institution
This is a teacher training course to prepare teachers to teach English to non-native speakers. This course is essential to understanding the grammar and pronunciation aspects of my native language. Being native in English is not enough to reduce accent, improve vocabulary, and effectively correct grammar mistakes, while learning tricky phrasal verbs.
