Subjects: English Second Language


Hi, welcome to the US! Whether you are new to the country, or been here awhile, there are probably many ways you can improve your English skills. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so I can coach you to speak in the most popular form of American English. My ESL teaching career began in Kyoto, Japan where I taught private students and group classes for two years. Currently I'm teaching Business English as an adjunct professor at a local university, and also teach ESL daily at a language school. I'm fascinated by language and world cultures. Having studied German and Japanese myself, I know that learning a new language may seem daunting at first, but all it takes is a little effort and a willingness to make mistakes! I've seen students make great progress as long as they bring a positive attitude. I'm excited to meet you and look forward to customizing your lessons to help you meet your personal goals!
