Creative English: General, ESL and Test Preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, SAT/ACT)

I specialize in ESL and General English for all ages, ranging from beginner children's lessons to help with homework to reviewing and progressing in advanced grammar. I also have extensive experience teaching a a variety of English-focused test preparation: TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, SAT/ACT, essays, writing, public speaking, and Interview preparation.

Extra information

I completed my TEFL teacher training in Paris, France in October 2011 and have since taught at more than one English Language School as well as worked with many private students in New York and France. In addition to my teacher training, I am an actor, writer, and performer. Because of this, I have excellent skills with communication, working with others, and being in front of small or large groups of people. I am a native English speaker, capable of very concise, articulate speech, and have a great love of the English language. I achieve amazing satisfaction from inspiring others to communicate. I enjoy the creative elements of teaching and using the students' interests to drive a passion and desire to learn. Amidst my minimal travels across the globe thus far, I have learned that communication is the key to understanding and appreciating each other. In France, I have been able to have a much better understanding of the culture and people I interacted with by knowing their language. Therefore, I believe the more we can express ourselves to those of importance in our experiences, the more fulfilling our lives can be.

About Me

I moved to France in August 2013 after having lived in New York City for ten years. I received my TEFL certificate in Paris 2011 and since then have taught privately and in language schools in Manhattan, NY and in Paris. Most recently, I have been working with test preparation centers focusing on TOEFL, IELTS, and SAT/ACT.

In addition to being a teacher, I am an actor, singer, and writer, so I have wonderful enthusiasm, performance skills, and a love of the English language. Because of this, I have excellent skills with communication, working with others, and being in front of small or large groups of people. For the past year, I have been launching my writing career and have several travel articles published online.

My major goal is to boost your confidence so that you will communicate better in every situation. During our first lesson, I will determine your speaking skills and we will discuss the areas that you need to progress. Then, after our first lesson, I will send you a comprehensive level test so that I will know your level of English. The fundamental part of my plan for your English is to make sure that you are using it every single day ~~ that is the best ever way to improve. I teach students of all levels and ages from all over the world. In my class, I help them according to their learning goals and needs. I design my lessons based on what my students are looking for such as grammar, pronunciation, speaking, listening and reading to communicate better and effectively in English. I have always been passionate in teaching and I love learning different cultures. A lesson with me will be fun, relaxed, easy going and comfortable. In this way, you can practice English with me without feeling intimidated and pressured. Speak to me as you would to a friend. Moreover, I have a student-centered approach. I encourage my students to speak a lot and express themselves freely. I always make sure that you are more than satisfied and having fun during our lesson. I am here to help you to boost your conversational skills, communicate with confidence and speak English smoothly and naturally. I would love to help you just like I helped Jiseon: "She is an excellent teacher. She's always focused on the goal of mine why I learn English now. She knows well about my weakness and strength in speaking English, for that reason, I feel my English is growing up every single class. The best thing is our class is so fun, interesting and absorbing, for me, one hour is too short"
