About the classes

(What you can learn from this teacher)

My Masters of Science in Education, 7 years teaching and the experience teaching in multiple countries have enabled me to understand what exactly different learners need to write successfully. I use different techniques that have been proven to help bring out the best speaker in you and stimulate your creativity at the same time. I will bring in other materials to supplement your learning like articles, political cartoons, short videos, ted talks, etc.

Course program:


Tailored to your goals, we will go over a variety of topics in a fun way, where we work on your conversational correctness and stimulate your interest and confidence in speaking English.

In our first session, we will talk about your goals and then we will make a plan for your success. For example: If your goal is to be speaking more professionally, a plan of success would look something like this.

Week 1: What you do at work and your goals
Week 2: Projects you're working on
Week 3: An example topic you find difficult to express
Week 4: Another topic you find difficult to express
Week 5: A short article in English having to do with your field for discussion/opinion talk
Week 6 and onward... Etc...
