Lisa believes that accent reduction and correct usage of the English grammar and vocabulary go hand in hand. If you have a weakness in one area you will not feel confident and you will not sound fluent. She believes that the fastest and most efficient way to achieve total fluency is for learners to always work on more than one skill at the same time. All of her courses are designed with that philosophy in mind.
Teaching accurate English communication to advanced learners of English has been her main goal and passion for the last thirty years.
