If you are looking for a teacher to get you started on your English, or get you to the next level, I can help you achieve your goals. I have training as a linguist and language researcher, and equally as a teacher and educator. I know how to make lessons productive, but also FUN and stress-free. This is a chance for you to practice whatever skills you need in a safe environment, with lots of help and encouragement. Every learner is different, and I will adjust and plan lessons that meet your specific needs. I have 6 years experience (and another 6 years of education) in teaching conversation, grammar, reading, writing, and pronunciation. I have taught all levels and age groups, and enjoy working with all types of students. Whether you want to practice your speaking and pronunciation for a vacation, get higher marks in school, improve your writing skills, prepare for a test, or learn vocabulary you need for a specific job, I can help. I am a native English speaker from Canada, and have a Masters in Applied Linguistics. I have taught at private language schools and universities as an ESL instructor. I am currently living in Oaxaca, Mexico, teaching at a private institution, and working on my Spanish. I know what it's like to be a language learner, and am very understanding of each person's learning process. If you are interested in a lesson, don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for reading!
