عني

Are you interested in art or design? Is it difficult for you to share your ideas or your work in English? Do you have specific goals or problems that you need help with right now? I'm the teacher for you!

There are many great online English teachers, but not many of them have my experience in art and design. Knowing how to talk about art is a special skill, and I’m happy to share my knowledge with you so that you can express your ideas more effectively in English.

I specialize in helping students interested in art and design. I know the vocabulary that artists and designers need, and I know the kinds of language tasks that are expected of them. I've helped students prepare presentations to talk about their work in meetings, write artist statements for gallery shows, or proofread English subtitles for their films. I've given feedback on CVs and resumes, taught critique skills, and helped students prepare for interviews. I can also help people that want to sell their work online and want to be sure their About page content is good or their speaking is correct in their videos.

I help students to reach their goals quickly with patience, encouragement, and humor. I'm very organized, friendly, and I have a lot of teaching experience. I've worked with low-, intermediate-, and advanced-level students from many different language backgrounds.

I've taught listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, as well as grammar and pronunciation. I know a lot of tools and strategies to help students succeed, and I have many years of experience with creating custom learning materials.

If art or design is your passion, I can help you to speak, critique, and write about it in English. I work with clients at beginner, intermediate, and advanced English levels. Check out my courses and video to learn more, or book a trial lesson so we can talk about how I can help!
