English Classes

Course description:

All classes are tailor-made for each student and focus on what you need most: conversation, grammar, pronunciation, intonation, writing, interview prep., etc. After every class I send students detailed notes with a list of new vocabulary words, grammar corrections, and follow-up grammar exercises.

Teaching approach:

I create a very relaxed environment in class where students feel comfortable to make mistakes and practice new vocabulary words. I prepare materials specific to each class. Many of my students have told me that one of the things they like most are the notes I send them after class. I know how important corrections are and that it's easy to forget new vocabulary words. The class notes help them remember new words, take note of their grammar mistakes, and continually improve.

Hello! I'm Jennifer, a native English speaker from Philadelphia, U.S.A.

I started teaching English in 2004 to immigrants and refugees in Philadelphia. Within the first five minutes in the classroom, I fell in love with my students and teaching and that love continues to this day. Through teaching, I have been able to help people fulfill their dreams of moving abroad, getting jobs and promotions, traveling, receiving acceptances to universities, and simply feeling more comfortable and confident when speaking English. Through teaching, I have also had the privilege and joy of meeting people from all over the world, learning about them and their cultures, making incredible friends, and visiting many places.

Aside from teaching, I'm also a writer and illustrator with two published books. Other interests include travel, reading, playing the piano, and studying languages.


Master of Education in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), Boston University, 2012.
CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), International House Madrid, 2005.
Bachelor of Arts in History, Bryn Mawr College, 1999.


Subjects: English, all levels from beginning to proficient: speaking, listening, reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation, intonation, test preparation (TOEFL), interview preparation, creative writing, and business English.
