"What I love most about teaching English is helping people become better at communicating in English.      Whether this involves speaking or writing (an academic paper, for example)  , my job is to help you gain confidence in your ability to express yourself and be understood using English. 

It is also important that you understand what others are expressing to you. For that to happen, it takes practice.  

And that is where we  come in. Here, you have a safe space where you can learn and practice until you feel confident. 

I am not so much an English teacher as I am an English coach. 

Like a sport or playing a musical instrument, you need lots of practice to get good.  Having a coach to lead you can help a lot.

I think that practice should be educational but it should also be fun--it has to be fun. And believe me, as you become more fluent in English, you will have more and more fun."
