Conversational English, Business English, IELTS Preparation
Hello English learners!
I'm a CELTA certified English language instructor from California, USA and I have over 7 years of experience. I am a fun person and like to make classes enjoyable and also productive. My free time is spent with my family, rock climbing, and also continuing to improve my skills as teacher.
My family is originally from China and that’s why I look Asian, but have fluent English with an American accent. My family immigrated to America a long time ago, three generations back. It was my great grandparents that moved to California first.
I specialize in teaching business English, English test preparation (IELTS), conversational English, and writing. I have worked with students of all ages from all over the world. Please contact me for a free trial class and I will explain how I can make your English classes fun, challenging, and effective.
I’m a teacher of a foreign language, but I also know what it’s like to learn a second or foreign language because I have been studying and learning Thai. I currently live in Thailand.
All of my students say that I am patient, fun, and enjoyable to learn with.
I am available to teach children, young adults, and adults of all levels.
