About this pro

Having taught English at colleges and universities for over 3 years, I have helped many students work their way to fluency.  Additionally, I have worked in the language tourism industry for over ten years. During that time, I have taught thousands of students to improve their speaking and writing.  

I use the communicative style of teaching common to most of the language tourism schools here in Miami.  Additionally, I have extensive experience using a conversation based method to get students to their fluency and speaking goals.  Finally, classes focus on the vocabulary and language for business or leisure; and service according to your needs.

Give me a call for a free evaluation.

I would have to say that the creative process connected to lesson planning is what I most enjoy.  The rapport and camraderie that comes from working in a large class setting is also something that makes this job highly rewarding.  

Teachers who assist in the development of a person's first language objectives are blessed with a deep feeling of accomplishment.  They come to realize that giving is getting when a student comes to fluency.  I would have to say that it is no different for me here.  

At the intermediate and advanced level, we teachers can help people refine their ideas communication.  They are taught how to open a conversation, move it along, as well as end it.  Here, I find it most fun to let the students develop their own styles of writing.
