My name is Madison, but friends call me Maz. I'm a Native English teacher from Austin, TX, currently living in Lisbon, Portugal. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, I taught English language classes for about a year, in Granada, Nicaragua, and I've been teaching for about a year online from Lisbon! I'm TEFL certified and I can teach all levels, but I specialize in advanced conversational practice and Business English!
I try to make each lesson fit each student. I want to teach you exactly what you want to learn, in a fun and focused way! If you'd like to advance your English speaking abilities, sign up for a trial lesson! I can't wait to help you achieve your goals.
