About Cherie

Cherie in the garden

I am a native English teacher from the USA and have been teaching English to adults and children of all ages and cultures since 2007. My international background includes teaching in South Korea, the USA and Switzerland.

My specialization is in Conversation Lessons, General and Business English, Exam Preparation, English for Children and Cross-Cultural Communication.

I have worked in various industries before I became an English teacher. My previous work experience was as an environmental consultant, technical writer, recruiter, marketing spokesperson and a nanny.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and immerging myself in the local culture. My other interests are yoga & essential oils, reading, cooking, walking, biking and enjoying nature to its fullest.

My students describe me as engaging, motivating and pragmatic. My greatest passion is to help my students meet their individualized English goals. I provide honest feedback to improve fluency.
