I love helping my students speak more fluently. I work with them individually, on a one-to-one basis, to help them improve their speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and listening skills. It’s a most rewarding educational experience. I’ve seen my students grow by leaps and bounds and sound more and more like native English speakers.
