About the classes

(What you can learn from this teacher)

I use a mix of material and have a high level of energy that allows me to tap into the initiative and energy of my students. I aim to make that essential English beat a part of their body, like a tune they cannot forget. This will help them apply it to their spoken English.

Learn English quickly with an experienced ESL teacher! My specialty is teaching speaking, pronunciation and listening. If you are having difficulties understanding and being understood, I can help! In addition I have taught academic and professional reading and writing to individuals and groups, as well as IELTS preparation. My focus is you: For what purpose do you need to learn English? What do you find most troublesome to say/ write in English? I tailor lesson plans to your needs and my materials are from a variety of sources that have proven successful with obtaining results.

I have my TESL certificate from George Brown College in Toronto and am currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in College Teaching through the University of Sherbrooke. I have been teaching ESL for three years to students from a variety of backgrounds and ages, single and group lessons.
