I tailor the lesson plan to match the topics you want to learn about and your ability. We work on grammar to improve your conversational skills. After the intial assessment, we work on requested vocabulary and figure out what you want to get out of improving your English skills. We work accordingly
I use a method that makes sure the student is having fun and is completely customized to the student's individual interests. The classes are offered via Skype or face to face. We focus on developing speaking skills and the ability to use language in real life situations and live dialogues. Keeping the class environment as casual as possible is essential to having a fun class.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Traveling the world for over 8 years has made me realize just how important education is to younger generations. The numerous professional jobs I've had consist of teaching 1200 high schools students English in China and Spain, training big cats in Thailand and New Zealand, director of numerous festivals/events all across Canada and a Activities Director for an all inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico. All these jobs have been eye opening experiences where I received memorable memories but nothing in comparison to having the opportunity to teach children that their imagination is every thing and that it's a preview of life’s coming attractions.
My previous work experience includes securing a network of satisfied clients where I have always been a dependable and respectful team leader. Through professional experience I have developed an extensive skill set that includes the ability to multitask, divert stress, and ensure a unique perspective of happiness when people walk away. I have a heightened awareness of people’s needs and in effect I always make sure they walk away feeling positive, motivated and confident that dealing with me was there best choice. I would be honored to bring all this drive, determination and flexibility to this teaching position where I promise to be proactive in all the challenges presented to me.
