Bio:

Clear native Canadian English speaker with a cheerful, fun and creative style. Tailored, easy lessons yet challenging and motivating, using general conversation and literary tools to help build confidence in speaking. Enjoy helping you get ready for exams, interviews, preparing business materials, technical communication or general improvement in public speaking and travel.

My teaching methodology:
To begin, let's find out what English assets and deficiencies you have, then we will make a program together. Foreign speakers often need help on "TH" and past tense usage. Promise to make learning fun and simple, building up confidence and interest and then get into some challenging tasks as you progress. Love conversation on just about any topic so finding your passion is key to enjoyment here.
  • ** IMPORTANT Notes: Please do not "pop" into my schedule without first contacting me with a message to introduce yourself.
Also, laptop and desktop setups are best for our communication as cell phones can result in poor connections. My video connection is optimised for use in other services so you will be asked to take the video feed there.
My teaching background:

Teaching English for 10 years now. Although, having a strong background in technical and business communication, passionate about helping students improve pronunciation and challenging them with homonyms, tongue twisters and introduction to what makes up 50% of English...Latin and Greek!

My background outside of teaching:

Motivated by a big interest in etymology, (word history) and the study of cultures and their relationship with phonology, (sound study), while traveling and living through this miracle of a planet, has made for some colorful adventures that are sure to interest you as we share our experiences.
