I am a university English and Business Communications instructor working exclusively with non-native speakers. I am passionate about English grammar and words and putting them all together and showing others how to effectively communicate their message. I'm also passionate about language testing and teaching. When I was working on my master's degree in applied linguistics, we really delved into how standardized tests such as the TOEIC, TOEFL, and IELTS are written and scored. I find this type of thing fascinating.
The goal of applied linguistics is to understand how people -specifically adults- learn a foreign language. As such, I understand that there are different learning styles. One of the first things we will do together is determine which learning style fits you, and I will adapt my lessons accordingly.
I also appreciate the fact that language acquisition can only take place when one is comfortable and relaxed, so I make sure my lessons are fun and interesting for each student. In short, my lessons are highly customized to suit your needs.
