Hello! My name is Vanessa Corey. I am a well-traveled, well-educated American with an excellent academic and professional background in international relations, linguistics, communications and psychology. For the past 6 years in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, I have taught intensive English lessons on a broad scale of content, focus, and levels. Here in SE Asia, I have taught both public and private lessons for students of all age ranges, including children, university students, and adults. In the U.S.A, I also taught English to immigrants in ESL programs, as well as remedial English to illiterate native speakers of English.
Most of my students have the goal of applying to western universities; obtaining high-paying jobs in western companies that require advanced English skills; or moving to countries where fluency in English is vital. Many of my students succeed in their English goals and find a whole new world of opportunities suddenly open to them!

Giới thiệu về khóa học

If you want an English tutor ready to guide and support you in meeting your goals to understand and speak English, you're in the right place!

I am a well-traveled, well-educated American with a professional background in international relations, linguistics, communications and psychology. For the past 6 years in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, I have taught intensive English lessons on a broad scale of content and focus, mainly for young adults and teenagers, but also children in both public schools and private lessons. In the U.S.A, I have also taught English to immigrants in ESL programs as well as remedial English to native speakers of English.

My interests and hobbies include reading (mostly non-fiction), writing, discussion and debate, linguistics, effective communications, psychology, sociology, travel, culture, history, art, hiking, camping, animals, bicycling, ice hockey, coaching, self-improvement and optimization, cooking, nutrition, etc.

Mục tiêu khóa học

Listening and speaking are the most important skills. We learned our first language by listening and speaking, remember? Lots of listening and then speaking little by little. Of course we did all our thinking in our mother tongue. We all have the capacity to learn a language this way but have been redirected from these skills by the poor language instruction most of us have had in school.

I will constantly remind you to practice listening and speaking. I will tell you to push yourself to think in English. With practice, you will be able to flip a mental switch and think in the target language. Like turning on a light switch, you will be able to turn it off and back on as needed.

For listening practice, try www.lingq.com, www.eslpod.com, www.elllo.org, www.esl-lab.com, and www.learningenglish.voanews.com and for speaking practice, www.englishcentral.com is really great. To help yourself think in English, be sure to use an English language dictionary, not a translation dictionary. Once we begin working together, I'll give you lots more resources and materials to use and we will decide together what materials to focus on for the lessons we do in class on Skype.

In our classes together, you will do a lot of talking and some listening. I'll correct your grammar and pronunciation mistakes. Depending on your needs, we may do some reading, writing, pronunciation practice and looking at grammar to increase your awareness, depending on your needs.

Relax, Repeat and Review

Always relax yourself before self-study or a class by using whatever methods you know. You will learn more and enjoy yourself more if you are not tense.


Repeat everything! Listen to audio files, podcasts or songs several times, not just once. Each time you listen, focus on something new....comprehension, pronunciation, intonation, word order, collocations. Listen again and try "shadowing". Echo what you hear, or if there is a text, read it out loud immediately after the voice on the recording. We can talk more about shadowing in class.


Review any lessons that you have done a week later, then, three weeks later, then, a few months later. This is the way to be sure that you have moved the lessons from short term memory to long term memory and really learned the material. Flash card programs like ankisrs.net are good for learning vocabulary with a built in system of review. I will put comments and corrections in the Skype chat box which you can read over/review from time to time.

I encourage you to use English language dictionaries instead of translation dictionaries, not only to learn the proper pronunciation of a word and its meaning, but also to read sample sentences and see how we use the word so that you will be able to use the new vocabulary yourself !!! That's what you want, right? In these sample sentences, I want you to try to identify collocations (common phrases). Notice the words before and after the target word. You can pick up some phrases as you study the target word. If the target word is traffic, you will probably see phrases like "heavy traffic" and "traffic jam" in sentence examples.


All this will help you with: Thinking in English, Recall, and Fluency.


Thinking in English + Recall + Fluency = Confidence
Why do I call myself a coach and not a teacher?

As you know, teachers usually teach from a book with little regard to the knowledge and capabilities the student may already have. I learn what your goals, wants and needs are and customize lessons to teach you only what you want and need.


I use a notebook on a clipboard like any other coach. The lessons can change like a game plan depending on your challenges. I want to help you meet your goals! We want to win!

I'll give you tips on how to improve rapidly. I will draw from many books and resources I have acquired in my twenty years of instruction and tutoring. You will keep me informed on your interests and goals, ask me any questions, tell me what you enjoy and what you find boring. Remember, this will be a collaborative effort.
