Effective Learning is unique -- what works for you might not work for someone else. Discovering what works for you is all that matters.
I focus lessons on your interests, personality and goals. Whether it is Business English, conversation for travel, writing essays, or learning for fun, it is essential that YOU as a learner are getting what you want from your time, money, and effort.
As a school teacher, TEFL tutor, and someone who has traveled and learned new languages myself, I am able to understand the variety of challenges one faces, and I am here to help you succeed in reaching your goals . . . whatever the age, schoolkid to scholar, people learn most effectively when they are engaged and having fun.
I am also well-versed in UK slang, and can help you understand any type of US dialect, music and pop culture, even Australian variations.
I wish you every success in your quest, offline and on. Let me help you on your journey!
