Professional ESL Conversationalist: Increase your confidence, build your vocabulary, strengthen conversation skills.

Methodology

Professional ESL Conversationalist working successfully with international adult ESL clients in government, business, academics and social environments to improve their ESL conversation skills.

Clients who benefit most from working with me are those that already have an advanced mastery of general American English, are ready to make a long-term commitment to their successful continued English language acquisition and are now focused on improving in the following areas:

*Reducing negative impacts of native language pronunciation/intonation in oral English presentation in conversational interactions.

*Improving American English pronunciation, intonation in spoken English skills.

*Improving self-correction skills within the chaos of real-time conversational environments.

*Improving listening comprehension skills within real-time conversational environments.

*Adding advanced English vocabulary, slang & Internet speak to their English language skills.

Session structure:

* 1-1 online text/audio/video Zoom conference sessions that focus on engaging, interesting, intelligent, humorous, and personally relevant conversational topics & content.

* Meant to mimic real-life conversational interactions encountered in business, academic and social environments. Each session is an individually customized conversation that addresses/reflects the interests and personality of the ESL client.

* Real-time feedback that focuses on improving the client’s self-correction speaking/listening skills within the conversational environment.

Methodology:
*As a Professional Conversationalist, I am a chameleon who will adapt to each and every client I work with. From casual to formal, social to government, academic to business, I always endeavor to find a comfortable conversational environment for each client I work with.

*Conversational engagement is primarily directed by the client unless the client requests otherwise.

*Conversational style, content, and interactions are unique to each client and will reflect the individual client’s personality and the objectives/goals the client seeks to achieve.

*All conversational content & sessions are kept in the strictest confidentiality.

Background

I have worked successfully with over 300 international adult ESL clients.

Clients I have worked with have reported the following achievements as a result of working with me:

*Successfully interviewed for a job/promotion.

*Successfully passed their English only academic studies.

*Confidently presented their lecture/slide show to a business/government/social conference.

Darlene's CV

Continuing education at Arizona State University via Coursera.org to complete my TESOL certification.

Ongoing educational opportunities for personal development, leadership, and positive entrepreneurial growth.

I have always been a gifted conversationalist. Three and a half years ago, I recognized a need in the ESL field, for Adult ESL clients to have an opportunity to focus on improving their American English conversation skills through the use of regular, ongoing conversational interactions.

As a native American English speaker, who was born and raised in the United States, has an active interest in both domestic and international affairs, enjoys conversational topics of all sorts and learning about different places, cultures, and people, and is comfortable providing real-time constructive criticism regarding conversational mistakes, this work is also a passion.

It is not often, that one finds themselves work that has such a profoundly positive impact on another’s life experience, but that is exactly what my work is. I strive to build bridges and break barriers with engaging conversational interactions.
