    Teaching Approach

    My teaching approach is highly individual because each of my students is unique. As such, I don't believe in the "one size fits all" approach to teaching English. During our first meeting we'll make an assessment of where you are and where you want to be. We'll then design a personalized plan to get you there! My philosophy is that learning another language should be fun. I will go at your speed, focus on what you want to focus on, and ensure that your English language experience is an enjoyable one.

    Program Description

    I am a professional English language teacher living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have taught at English language schools in Russia and the United States and have tutored a large number of private students of all ages/levels from the following countries: Armenia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Columbia, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Mexico, Mongolia, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Taiwan, Tibet, Turkey, Venezuela, and Vietnam.

    Here is what I offer:
    1. Complete English language instruction (all ages/levels) 2. Accent Reduction/Acc urate Pronunciation (Improve your spoken English, lose your accent, and become more understandabl e!)
    3. Self-Confiden ce when speaking English (Learn to think in English)
    4. Grammar/Style Correction for any and all written material
    5. Business English - Improve your written and spoken communication
    6. Academic Writing (Undergraduat e/Masters/PhD)
    7. Professional Journal Publication assistance
    8 . Assistance in taking your mastery of the English language to the next level.

    Years of experience in teaching English has shown me that learning a new language is a natural process and shouldn't be stressful or boring. I will work with you to ensure that your English language journey is fun, enjoyable, and rewarding. (The proof of this is that the majority of my new students come as a result of current/past student recommendatio ns.)

    Teaching Experience

    After completing my ESL training and certification , I began my teaching career in Vladimir, Russia where I worked from August, 2009 to July, 2010. After returning to the U.S., I taught numerous classes at an ESL Institute that pertained to academic writing, reading, grammar acquisition, accurate pronunciation , and effective communication . I worked at this school for approximately two years before beginning my own ESL business. I greatly enjoy teaching and have had a wealth of experience in both the classroom and in personal tutoring.

    Teacher Training

    I majored in Education until completing my degree in Computer Systems Analysis and Design. I then worked in U.S. corporations for many years. At last, I returned to my first love ... teaching. While analyzing and designing business systems in American corporations, I developed the skill of providing clear, concise, and well organized instruction both verbally and in writing. This is a huge asset in my English language instruction.
