For ELLs, I can help you with cultural acclimatization, conversation practice, pronunciation, reading, writing (resumes, essays, letters, writing styles, grammar), you name it!
You will: - become more confident speaking in English when practicing with a proficient English speaker. - have someone ready to listen and provide linguocultural solutions and insight. - improve fluency, pronunciation, and a general understanding of English language quirks. - have help applying for jobs and getting accepted into schools or classes you would like to enroll in. - receive better scores on papers and exams. - have a cleaner resume, or get help in writing a resume for ATS (Applicant Tracking System).
Why me? :)
