I am an "American English and Culture Coach." I emphasize the individualized needs of my clients. My clients are mid-level professionals or subordinates who already have enough English skills to perform their current jobs, but would like to really focus on their unique job-related English language needs and cultural understanding to be able to qualify for higher positions or supervisory roles in their companies. I do a needs assessment to identify the specific vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and writing skills that are needed to produce the most immediate positive results on the job.

I utilize an array of online tools and resources. My students spend a good deal of study time on their computers, and I meet with them in person, as needed, to practice listening, speaking and pronunciation, and to continuously re-assess goals and objectives. My students show rapid and effective results!

  • Onsite: I travel to the following cities in Massachusetts: Lynn, Revere, Peabody, Salem, Saugus, Danvers, Marblehead, Swampscot, and Nahant.
