À propos de moi

Hello! I am an ESL teacher from Ohio with an MA degree in applied linguistics and 9 years of experience teaching English to young adults and university students in the USA, China, and Lithuania.

Right now, I teach writing, grammar, listening, speaking and pronunciation to intermediate and advanced learners on Verbling.

My special teaching areas are:

I can help you communicate clearly and confidently in English, and will happily develop a special teaching plan just for you! Please send me a message so that I can help you prepare for success! You will not regret choosing me as your English tutor!
