There’s nothing more frustrating than being in a meeting and not knowing what to say.   Or being unsure of yourself when writing an email.  Or having to do small talk at a networking event when you have  no idea what you are doing.  

This lack of confidence could be costing you time and money.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

My teaching philosophy

Most of my clients speak English pretty well.  It just needs some improving.  But most think that improving their English means doing old fashioned grammar drills and having boring lessons. 

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Right now, more and more companies are requiring English on the job.  Perfect grammar should not be the goal.  The goal is for you to be able to do your job confidently. 

And that’s what I help you do.  I work with you to guide you through the grammar and vocabulary you actually need in a way that you will understand.  Our sessions are a safe space where you can make mistakes and, more importantly, learn from them.   

I want you to be so confident, that you don’t just speak English.  I want you to own it! 

Getting started is very easy

Contact me

Contact me and tell me with some basic information about how you use English and what you feel your problems are.

We'll have a chat

I'll contact you by email to arrange a time to speak (usually by Skype) to determine if I'm the right trainer for you. Of course, this call is free.

Let's get started!

If we both decide to move ahead with lessons, I'll send you the contract and we can schedule our first lesson. Easy!!!


And finally, a little about me

I am an American originally from the Washington, DC suburbs.  While stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in the mid-1980s (I was a solider in the US Army), I met and married a very nice British chap.  Since then, we’ve bounced back and forth between  the US, and the UK – which means I understand the language and cultural differences between the two countries. (And they are much greater than you think!)

Professionally, I have a background in both for-profit and non-profit businesses.  I hold a CELTA qualification to teach English, as well as an MA in History and a BA in History and writing.   

Let’s get you started on this journey.  I don’t want you to just learn English.  I want you to own it!  Contact me today!
