I am sometimes asked why Canadian students take English lessons. Many students do not understand thetechnical terms of writing, or why they lose marks on their grammar. I teach the full range of fundamental rules- comma splices, dangling modifiers along with techniques to write more detailed, interesting essays. It is harder to understand one’s native language than a second language, as the rules are acquired, and not learned. I guarantee you will be able to understand and correct your errors in just three sessions.

Lessons also include elements of fiction, and how to understand and enjoy the rich world of literature by analyzing stories and poetry. Particular attention is paid to cultural references, themes, and inferences.  As a poet, I encourage students to be creative.

My custom programs honor a student’s strengths, which in turn increase confidence and ability. My unique gift is discovering the potential and passion of my students, and my coaching assists them in achieving their goals and dreams.

Custom Accent Reduction classes are available for professionals, as well as Business English and Public Speaking.
