Sobre mim

If you want to communicate in English at a more confident level and become a more powerful speaker, I can help you. With over 8 years experience in instructing, both in front of a group of people and one-on-one, online and offline, I can assist you in reaching your English language speaking goals.

Business English practice

I do specialize in the instruction of business English as I understand the challenges faced by business people when trying to communicate to and with their foreign clients. This is done through role play and by helping you to gain an understanding of the cultural differences that may be preventing you from completing your business successfully.

I custom tailor my sessions with your requirements to ensure that you make the best use of your valuable time.

I provide feedback on written materials such as resumes, emails, presentations and other materials as part of the customized program for you the client.

Interview practice

For those English learners trying to find work in a foreign company, I provide practice to improve your interview skills. As a consultant in Canada, I was interviewed many times and I bring that knowledge to my clients through mock interviews and providing general advice on how to behave and handle the stress of an interview.

General conversation practice

I can also provide general conversations with those people who have learnt English in the past but have not used it extensively but are now finding that they need to remove the "rust" so that they can become more confident in their speaking ability. They may be traveling for conferences or workshops or just for vacations and they want to make sure that they can be understood and that they understand conversations taking place. Again, I tailor the sessions to the client's requirements, i.e. travel and hotels, restaurants, etc.

IELTS and TOEFL practice

I was involved in instructing IELTS and TOEFL speaking which has helped some clients improve their IELTS speaking scores by up to 1 point. I will also provide feedback on IELTS and TOEFL written materials provided to me before the session.

My background and other information

I have instructed in one-on-one and group settings with my groups ranging from 4 to 20 people. The levels have been from beginner to higher level English learners and people from all education and professional backgrounds.

I always try to engage all of my clients by being able to discuss many diverse topics and interests. I can provide material on a range of topics to match my client's interests and needs. I provide immediate feedback and correct my clients issues without embarrassment to the client.

Book a trial session

The best way to find out if we can work together to improve your English level is to book a trial session. This session will enable us to get to know each other and I can understand your requirements and develop a plan to move you towards your language goals.

Making you a better speaker

I understand that my clients are interested in learning to speak proper English and I strive to provide the best English learning environment possible so that the client feels that they are steadily improving. I encourage all of my clients by instilling confidence in their ability and advocating continuing practice to become even better speakers.

Thank you and I look forward to talking with you.

To your language learning success
