I teach 4 general types of courses that I developed from my formal education in engineering, economics, linguistics, and several foreign languages. All courses are tailored to your specific needs but have defined goals:
-Business English (American business culture and includes teaching special vocabulary for your chosen area of expertise.)
-Mock Interviews (Behavioral, case interview, stress interview etc)
-Guided Conversation (Using native material like Youtube and readings as pre-work to lead our discussion in class)
-Pronunciation Focus (You learn some IPA to ensure you really know how to pronounce English words properly)
I grew up in Colorado, an intersectional state of American dialects. I have worked in the energy industry, first as an engineer, then in logistics, as a supervisor, and now as an economist and business analyst. My degree is in chemical engineering with a focus on material science, and I had formal education in Linguistics, French, German, and Russian. In my free time, besides learning languages, I like to stay in shape through running, cycling and lifting weights. I am fond of action movies, and listen regularly to music. I played several instruments in high school. I enjoy reading for self improvement as well as fiction. I bring all of this knowledge and passion into the lesson for you.
I have tutored English both on and offline for 4 years. I want to help increase competency in English world wide for those who find it interesting or need it for work and studies. I also like sharing my culture with others and teaching about the array of American cultures. I have taught a variety of ages and backgrounds, and have a strong grasp of my language through my interest in grammar, colloquial expressions, comparative linguistics, and cultural and literary analysis. I specialize in business english, technical english, and applied phonetics (pronunciation.)
I can teach anyone from absolute beginner to advanced, and if you are a learner who prefers explanations in your own language, I can utilize Italian, German, Czech, French, Russian and Norwegian to help bridge gaps in understanding for beginners.
