Hi! My name is Jessica and I'm a teacher from the United States who has taught students from all different backgrounds and of all levels. In the past, I have guided students in preparation for the citizenship exam, those who were studying in university, students looking for extra conversational practice, or anyone just starting out. I am super patient and not critical. I know what it's like to learn a language and feel timid about making mistakes. Don't worry!! I'll guide you to a place where you feel confident and comfortable in your speaking ability, pronunciation, vocabulary and conversational skills.
