Hi, I'm Maria

I help intermediate English learners become more comfortable and confident speaking English in the professional world.

Reaching a level where you can communicate has been great, hasn't it?!


You are (and should be) very proud of your achievement, but you still don't feel confident for some reason. I know that you understand most of what you read or hear.


Yet, you don't feel comfortable speaking.


If this is you, then I can help.


I understand what it means to learn new languages. I have learned Italian to a high level, yet I have always felt I was unable to express myself exactly how I would in English, my native language.


So, I've discovered some effective approaches that can help. 

Let me tell you all about them!
