Learn English through fun and friendly conversation!
I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, as well as a CELTA certification.
I taught at the St. Giles international language school in San Francisco, CA, and informally as a librarian for a public library system in Salt Lake City, UT
Experience: 5 years
Casually learn with a native speaker who has a degree in English and is CELTA accredited . We can talk about everything from American pop culture to literature and philosophy. Through casual conversation you will refine your pronunciation, learn new idioms, and form natural sounding sentences.
After teaching at an international language school and living abroad, I have helped many students and friends improve their language with informal correction and suggestions. We'll talk about what you're interested in, and shape our conversations to help you achieve your goals.
I like to ask you questions about your life, and will engage in actual conversations with you - not just deliver a language lesson. With my background in academic English and teaching English as a foreign language, I can talk about specific grammar and syntax details at your request.
After spending many years in college and corporate America, I can also refine your professional language and develop your vocabulary for higher education and business.
I also have experience with editing academic papers and creative writing, and can work with you through edits of your own writing while we talk. We can also have mock interviews, or roleplay any other sort of social interaction.
If you''d let to meet, let's have a free 15 minute chat and get to know each other. I look forward to sharing English with you!
