Sign up for a trial class and let's get started ⬇️ 💬 ADVANCED GRAMMAR 💬 I teach ADVANCED students worldwide including China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, France, Germany, Iran, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico. The one thing they all have in common is... grammar mistakes! I commonly review these parts of grammar with even my most advanced students: ◼️ Conditionals ◼️ Modal Verbs ◼️ Prepositions ◼️ Advanced Verb Tenses ◼️ Reported Speech The program I use to teach advanced grammar includes a personal learning plan, digital English lessons, and homework assignments. Most lessons include speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. We can combine grammar classes with conversation. 💬 ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATION 💬 A common English expression I remind my students is 'practice makes perfect'. One-on-one conversation classes are a perfect learning environment for practicing your English skills and boosting your confidence. Do you prefer free talk or topic-based discussion like culture, lifestyle, global issues, technology, or daily news? It's your choice! 👀 TED TALKS 👀 TED Talks are a great way to improve your English skills and learn something new. They are easier than podcasts. You can see the speaker and read the subtitles. I encourage my students to watch TV with subtitles. We can do this together, using TED Talks. We will pause the video and check your understanding of vocabulary and expressions. 👀 NPR PODCASTS 👀 For my highest-level students, I use NPR Podcasts. Prepare for a challenge! You will need to listen intently and take notes! NPR is short for National Public Radio. It has been 'on air' in the United States for over 50 years. In this class, you will choose a subject. We will listen to it together, pausing every few sentences to review vocabulary and expressions. You won't have access to the transcripts, so you must focus on the conversation. If you aren't being tested, I will be surprised. I am a native speaker and I learn new things every time! 💻 BUSINESS ENGLISH CURRICULUM 💻 Business English is a universal language in the corporate world. This complete curriculum is entirely focused on Business English. It benefits serious and motivated B1-level students to achieve their career goals. This program includes a personal learning plan, digital English lessons, and homework assignments. Most lessons include speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. We can combine grammar classes with conversation. The complete curriculum includes these topics: B1 Level: Job roles and Responsibilities • Around the Office • Companies and Products • Business Meetings • Business Travel • Business Networking • Cultural Awareness • Customer Service • Negotiations • Workplace Problems • Inside an Organization • Business Leadership • Internal Communication • Job Satisfaction • Job Experience • Technology and Innovation • Sales • Customer Experience • International Business • Remote Work B2 Level: Products • Time Management • Conflict Management • Social Media in Business • Human Resources • Workplace Personalities • Business Trends • Communicating with Clients • Marketing • Business Ideas B2 Level Vocabulary: Advertising • Brands and Identity • Customer Service • International Business Etiquette • Telephone Communication • Business Emails • Employment • Negotiation • Business Meetings • Organizational Structure • Interviews • Creating a Resume CV • Presentations • Networking • Business Ethics • Entrepreneurship • Business Law • Business Travel • Finance • Marketing • Proposals and Pitches • Cover Letters • Human Resources • Motivating Employees • Public Relations C1 Level: Business Management • Change Management • Business Ethics • Work Appraisals • Business Performance • Business Strategy • Business Competition • Advertising • Business Finance • Business Operations 🎤 PUBLIC SPEAKING 🎤 I have been practicing public speaking since I was a young child. I can stand and speak in front of a crowd with confidence. We will use the method I have been training with since childhood to help you improve your public speaking skills. You will prepare short speeches for review and critique. Before each speech, we will review qualities you can implement to help you improve as a public speaker. Qualities important for public speaking include: ◼️ correct pronunciation ◼️ appropriate pausing ◼️ enthusiasm ◼️ warmth and feeling ◼️ gestures and facial expression ◼️ visual contact ◼️ extemporaneous delivery ◼️ conversational manner ◼️ conviction ◼️ tactful yet firm ◼️ repetition for emphasis ◼️ effective conclusion Which qualities do you need to improve to become a skilled public speaker? 📖 VOCABULARY BUILDER 📖 I love books! In this class, we will pick an appropriate book to study together. I will give you a reading assignment before class. While reading, please note every word or expression you don't understand. In class, we will review the new vocabulary and expressions. Then we will discuss the reading assignment and practice meaningful conversation. There are so many amazing books to be read! Are you ready to begin? 😊 MORE DETAILS ABOUT ME 😊 ➡️ I was born and raised in the US but I live in Mexico. I love Mexico, my family, traveling, gardening, animals, and new adventures. I smile a lot, and my smile is big and my laugh is loud 😄 ➡️ Age 9, I started giving regular five-minute public speaking presentations in front of over 100 people. ➡️ Age 16, I started spending over 90 hours a month performing missionary work and teaching both young and old. ➡️ Age 17, I attended a two-week training class about the art of teaching.
