About me

Learn English through theater and conversation with an American English teacher.

As a performing artist and theater director, I am experienced in helping people open up and talk.  So if you want to practice speaking English in engaging, upbeat ways, let's do it!

As an English tutor and teacher with over 6 years of experience, I have worked with students ages 5-50.  I have taught students at beginning levels and advanced levels.  This course is primarily focused on conversation, so it is best if students are already at a Beginner/Intermediate level.

Look forward to speaking English with you soon!
