*High-quality lessons created for your English goals! New students are welcome.* Hello from the USA! I have been teaching English as a foreign language since 2014 and am looking forward to meeting new students on Verbling. I earned my certificate to Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in 2014 while living in China. In total, I instructed more than 1000 students while living abroad. I have also studied Spanish and Mandarin, so I understand the challenges of learning a foreign language. I will help you improve your conversational skills, writing ability, vocabulary and grammar. I can also help with English test preparation-- IELTS, GRE and more! When I'm not having fun teaching students English, I love to travel, hike and eat delicious food. I hope to work with you in your English-learning journey soon!
