For the past 2 ½ years I have been traveling the world doing volunteer and intercambio exchanges including teaching/tutoring English in many one-to-one and small group settings. My concentration has been on conversational English though I have also provided tutoring for students following the Cambridge English (or similar) instruction and testing format.
As an older adult committed to world travel, I have attended university for foreign language study. My language skills have excelled most successfully through immersion.
My typical English lessons via Spoken English Practice are relaxed and supportive. We follow a format of discussion on mutually agreed upon topics followed by corrections as necessary regarding vocabulary, delivery, and pronunciation.
I enjoy conversations about world cultures, travel, personal development, arts and creativity, communications and business.
As with learning any new language, I find that developing the self-confidence to deliver understandable communication is key. The best way to develop self-confidence is to practice speaking and listening… a lot!
The best habit in learning English is to dedicate yourself to practicing a little each day.
Find a friend, tutor, or teacher with whom you can have English conversations on a regular basis.
Practice your listening skills by listening to English music and watching English movies/TV.
I am a traveler. I enjoy hiking, dancing, nature, the arts, and volunteering. I am a freelance consultant; I provide proofreading and administrative services online.
I enjoy students of different cultural backgrounds with a broad range of interests.
