Hi everyone! My name is Liya and I am a native New Yorker. Want to learn how to speak like a student at my university? Need to practice listening to English for school, work, or a social setting? Want help editing your English papers? I specialize in speaking and listening practice, along with editing of documents. We will have stimulating free or structured conversations so you get used to hearing, and speaking to a native English speaker and make you sound fluent to any native English speaker regardless of country. I hope to have clear and helpful lessons ranging from basic vocabulary, to slang, idioms and nuances of the language that is hard to pick up simply from a book. We will develop a lesson plan together that is completely personalized.
