Sobre mim

I have 30 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught all levels; from basic to advanced grammar and conversation, as well as business English, pronunciation, TOEFL and TOEIC prep. I have taught overseas in the Peace Corps and in the States at language schools, the World Bank, continuing education programs and refugee programs. I especially enjoy helping you on the more difficult aspects of English grammar to improve your ability to speak and write more precisely. And I love teaching pronunciation. I always design my lessons specifically for you, based on your skill level and your goals. I believe that language learning is a lifelong process of discovery. As you learn the language, you learn the culture, and vice versa. My role as a teacher is to provide the 'rules' and guidelines, give you opportunities to practice what you are learning, provide suggestions for improvement and continuous feedback on your progress. Here is what one of my students says about me: "Martha helped us to get a deeper understanding of English language, expand considerably our vocabulary, strengthen our conversation skills, and also develop a more complex and correct grammar. After living in many foreign countries where she had close contact with their diverse cultures and languages, she is able to adjust her mind and teaching to the needs of international learners."
