Hi I live in America and Teach English and pronunciation with Blue Sky Education. I have degrees in music, teaching English, and speech therapy. I am passionate about teaching and use a lot of music in my classes to engage and enrich all my students. I love to play music. I play the flute. I live on an island and enjoy seeing the ocean everyday!!
I am passionate about teaching online because I can meet so many students from all over the world. I teach children and adults. My specialty is teaching the American accent. I use music and singing to assist in the journey of learning English. I look forward to sharing my teaching with you very much.
