My goal is to help you acquire skills and confidence to communicate effectively in any English-speaking environment. I will work with you to help you improve your overall fluency, vocabulary, grammar usage and pronunciation.

Speaking is the hardest and the most important skill. I make sure you speak 50-70% of class time, which lets you practice and actively work on improving your language skills. Working on listening skills, speaking well and reading lead to good writing skills.

I love getting to know students, their countries, and what’s important for them to accomplish; providing what they need so they can use what they learn to clearly and effectively communicate in their professional and personal lives.

I am proud of having been in a team of a few instructors who helped a Turkish speaker learn English from scratch to a level where she became fluent and 100% self-sufficient, gained full confidence, and went on to get her pharmacist license in California.

I have lived in three countries, and learned two second languages, so I understand what it’s like to acquire a new language. I have helped countless students to learn English from scratch or to improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

I am gladly accepting new students and looking forward to meeting you. I am available Monday through Saturday.
