Patricia (Small Talk & Conversation Skills Coach)

Harvard grad/12 years of exp.

Introduction

SpeaksEnglish, Spanish

If you have a question, please send me a message. I’d be happy to help you. More about me ... My name is Patricia and I’m from the United States. I’m a native speaker of English and I have a neutral American accent. I graduated from Harvard University and Columbia University (Graduate School of Business). I’ve been teaching and designing classes for more than 10 years and I have a TEFL certification. I work with adults and children who are 12 years old or older. My goal is to help you speak and understand real English so that you can have conversations with native speakers. We won’t waste time on vocabulary and grammar rules that native speakers don’t use. I'll even teach you what rules you can break! :-) In my classes we’ll have lots of conversations because that’s the best way to improve your speaking and listening skills. We’ll practice common conversations (like small talk) and discuss the things you enjoy talking about. These conversations will give us opportunities to learn or review vocabulary, grammar and verb tenses. When you learn these things through conversation, they’re much easier to remember. Do you find it difficult to pronounce certain words? I’ll show you some exercises that you can practice to make these words easier to pronounce. Finally, I’ll help you to make a study plan and I provide study materials so that you know what to do in between classes. You can also watch my free videos on Facebook and YouTube.
