Über Mich

Hello! I am an ESL teacher in the Philadelphia, USA area with an MA degree in applied linguistics and 11 years of experience teaching academic, online, and community English courses. I have been working on Verbling for 2+ years, and am currently offering specialized English tutoring in the following areas:

1) pronunciation and speaking classes for academic and professional communication (B2-C2). This style of course is best for advanced English speakers such as business professionals and graduate students who would like to develop communicative competence and confidence in their use of spoken English.

2) Speaking and presentation preparation for academic interviews, professional contexts, and IELTS/TOEFL testing.

3) English grammar and academic writing for B2-C1 level English learners. These courses revolve around grammar topics, but involve speaking, reading, and writing as well and include lesson materials, homework, and periodic assessments.

I can help you communicate clearly and confidently in English, and will tailor one of the three above lesson styles to your needs! Please send message me to discuss how I can best help you prepare for success!
