    English, Western Culture

    I have been teaching English as a second language for nearly 8 years in several different countries to students of every age and level! My aim is to not just present and explain the language but to give students an understanding of how it functions and why. And most importantly, I want my students to understand and connect with Western culture that has influenced on the English language so much.

    If you are seeking to not just learn new words and study grammar, but to enjoy becoming fluent in English and understanding how to communicate clearly and effectively to native speakers, then this class is for you!

    Classes will include reading comprehensions, to learn new vocabulary and grammar structures. Spoken conversation will be conducted on the topic of the class, where I will assist students in challenging areas of speech.
