Experience: 4 years
Offering classes and tutoring for people of all ages. My specialties include: grammar, pronunciation, phonetics, conversation, writing and American culture. I believe that any book, magazine, newspaper, music, audio or video recording can be used as material to learn English. It is always easier to study things that interest you.
I was born and raised in Iowa in the United States and went to college in Michigan. After graduating, I moved to Costa Rica where I have lived for the past 4 years, teaching English and studying Linguistics. The knowledge gained from both has proven very helpful to me, as well as to my students and classmates. I am a native speaker of English and I speak Spanish at the same level as a Costa Rican native.
I enjoy playing sports, especially frisbee and football, although my passion has always been languages. I like traveling, meeting new people, making friends, learning about cultures and customs, and listening to people's opinions about current events. Conversation is a great learning tool.
So, sign yourself up for a test lesson, contact me via the website, Skype, MSN or email and let's study English in the way best for you. Thanks for stopping by :)
