bio:
Tailored, easy lessons yet challenging and motivating, using general conversation and literary tools to build confidence in speaking to others. Shakespeare, poetry, music, books will quickly improve your English. Enjoy helping others get ready for exams, interviews, preparing business materials or for public speaking. Native Canadian English speaker, cheerful, fun and creative manner.
what should you expect from my classes:
To begin, lets find out what English assets and deficiencies you have or what you need help with. Then we will make a program together. Expect cognates, (words that are similar), word frequency and idioms have been great ways to accelerate learning and improve your vocabulary.
  • Learning will be fun and simple at first to build your confidence and interest, then moving into harder tasks.
my teaching background:
I have been teaching English for 9 years now sporadically. Although, having a strong background in technical and business communication, my main skill has been helping new students improve their pronunciation or challenging advanced students with homonyms, tongue twisters and introduction to Latin
my background outside of teaching:
Improved speaking flow and confidence building are where you will benefit most from my background skills. Really enjoying Polish English learners, especially those needing help with pronunciation and flow. That dreaded ~th~ sound is what usually needs "Polishing". :-> Pun intended.
