Hi! I'm Erika. I am an American, living in California. I am a patient and supportive English teacher with years of experience learning languages. Our lessons will focus on conversation which I believe is the fastest, easiest and the most fun way to learn a language! We can work to improve your grammar, expand your vocabulary and perfect your pronunciation. I have an American accent that I am told is clear and easy to understand. I have a masters degree in opera performance from McGill University in Canada and because of my background as a classically trained singer I am especially qualified to help you learn to speak English clearly and with very good pronunciation.
I speak fluent French which I began learning while living in Belgium for 6 years. I have also studied some Spanish, German and Italian. I am passionate about learning and look forward to sharing that passion with you.
I have worked for one year as a volunteer teaching English to recent immigrants to the United States. My students came from around the world and many were complete beginners. It was a wonderful experience and it was very gratifying to see my students gain confidence with their English over time.
Contact me and let's try a lesson! I am looking forward to meeting you!
