Frequently Asked Questions
During our first session, we will discuss your goals and biggest challenges, and I will provide feedback on the main areas I think you need to focus on to improve your clarity and expression. Together, we will design a best course of action to improve your English.
I facilitate a relaxed learning environment, like we are two friends naturally speaking (while learning at the same time). Lessons consist of learning new content based on your learning plan, as well as reviewing past material to make sure it has been integrated. All homework material is provided.
Students should expect to spend at least 2 hours per week practicing outside of lesson time.
All new students may take a comprehensive ESL Placement Test to identify your personal strengths and weaknesses. The test will generate an English Gap Analysis and Language Level. Using the Gap Analysis, we will make a unique English Learning Plan for you.
I have an extensive library of professional English lessons that match your learning needs. We can cover pronunciation, accent reduction, speaking, reading, listening, grammar, idioms, slang, and much more!
Lessons will be conducted via Zoom. This is a free video-conferencing platform that is easy to use. You will need to create an account and download the application.
If you are unable to use Zoom for some reason, Skype or Google Hangouts are also options.
Absolutely! Homework / practice in-between sessions is essential if you want to improve. This may include grammar exercises, writing assignments, listening, shadowing, and recording yourself.
