Learn formal & conversational English from a culturally-interested native speaker in Pittsburgh

Methodology

I facilitate English conversations regarding interesting real-world topics in order to fully engage my students. I will utilize the Berlitz Method approach of clear learning targets, full English immersion, followed by realistic practice. Listening, speaking, reading, and writing will be covered.

Background

I am a recent college graduate who studied Experience Industry Management and Biology at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California. I spent a semester in Costa Rica where I refined my Spanish skills, and fell in love with learning a language. I have taught English lessons to children, and I am also looking to teach adults.
