I worked in the NBA for many years as a TV commentator, and now I teach American English classes. In the NBA, we had to have perfect pronunciation, so when you and I work on pronunciation, you will know that I can really help you.
I also work with adults who want to learn business English and improve their listening comprehension so you can really understand an English speaker. We will also work on common sayings and idioms, and I know how hard they are.
I'm great with kids who like sports, reading books, learning a musical instrument or most anything else. Would learning English help you get a better job? I've got over five years experience teaching English online and I think it's fun. I've worked with kids in middle school through college, and I have extensive experience with adults, especially in business English.
I like to make learning fun. When you have fun learning you learn more, remember more and you want to keep learning. Let's have fun and help you learn English.

I met Rosita through Hello Talk and she helped me to talk to people in 1 month. I have been taking lessons with her for 8 months and I feel confident. She is also very patient and encourages you!"

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
