Über Mich

Currently, I'm living in Fort Collins, Colorado however I've lived and worked in New York City and Hamburg, Germany ten years each. In Hamburg, I worked with corporate business clients and as an American living on the European continent, I know first hand what it's like to learn a foreign language.

I've recently obtained certification as a TEFL/TESOL 150 Masters Course instructor and have an almost completed Doctorate degree - ABD, all but dissertation, as well as, completed Masters and Bachelors degrees from Boston Conservatory of Music and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

For my Masters degree, I went specifically to work with a foreign language diction expert at the Boston Conservatory of Music, so excellent pronunciation is one of my interests. I enjoy working with Intermediate and Advanced students on their Conversational English skills both General English and Business English and have worked with B1, B2, and C1 levels along with lists of conversational topics.

Every student has individual abilities, needs and goals and these will be addressed according to each individual. Speaking, reading and writing English with confidence is a wonderful goal.
