원어민 쌤 프로필

Hi, I'm Bonnie, and I'm not your average e-teacher! I'm a professional writer, an editor of academic literature, a researcher of language acquisition, and a graduate of linguistic studies; I'm also an animal lover, a collector of body art, a bike-traveler, a music enthusiast, and a keen examiner of both the human condition and the universe we inhabit. But first and foremost, I'm a certified ESL teacher with more than 13 years of experience (including 3 years as an online instructor and 2 years on Verbling).

I provide editing services (please contact me for more information) as well as more traditional online classes. I specialize in business and academic English, informal discourse and conversation, exam preparation (TOEFL, TOEIC, and IELTS), phonetics (the sounds of speech), and pragmatics (the use of language in the North American context, such as idioms, colloquialisms, and social conventions). I have experience teaching all levels of adults, although I specialize in intermediate- and advanced-level learners.

My hardware is a Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720p HD webcam, and I have a high speed (50 mbps) cable internet connection.

Let's talk about your English goals and how I can help you achieve them. I hope to meet you soon!
