Sobre mim

Do you want to improve your conversational English or work on your overall skills? I'm a professional English teacher and a member the Oxford Teachers' Club at Oxford University Press, which means I use their materials in my lessons. I offer conversational lessons for advanced speakers as well as structured lessons.

Corrections are made in a subtle way during the conversational lessons and they are done after you finish speaking. In one of these lessons you will be the one talking most of the time.

For structured lessons I use an online book called Oxford Practice Grammar: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. You can see the book here https://elt.oup.com/student/practicegrammar/?cc=us&selLanguage=en

The materials are discussed in a way that is relevant to your life so that you are not bored by the lesson. These lessons can include writing practice as well.

I also can review anything you have written for work or school for errors and help you correct them during a lesson, too.

Additionally, I can help you prepare for the CELPIP, IELTS and TOEFL exams by asking you sample questions and checking your answers. I use official materials from the websites of these exams as well as from Oxford Teacher's Club. One of my students has passed the CELPIP with a 9,10,11,10 score as of 8/31/2020

I care that you succeed and have fun while doing so.

Finally, I'm not just a teacher on Verbing, I also currently take lessons on Verbling in Spanish, and I have taken lessons in Mandarin, Czech, Italian, and Portuguese.

Kind Regards,
Gary M.
