About Dr Amy Rashap  AR pub shot color 9-11small

With a Ph.D. in cultural studies from the University of Pennsylvania, I have been immersing myself in stories for decades. I know how to use the English language as a potent tool to help you get your message across.

I also specialise in the public speaking needs of second-language English speakers, focusing on pronunciation and intonation.

Experience

  • Public speaking and presentations:  I’ve coached business executives, government officials, lecturers and students and have worked with individuals from Australia, Singapore, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, France, Spain, Myanmar and Taiwan.
  • Teacher training:  Work as a trainer with the TEFL Academy in Melbourne: teach intensive workshops to train adults to become ESL teachers. I’ve also written the curriculum and taught many of the classes to help pre-school teachers in Singapore improve their written and spoken English.
  • Writing and editing: I’ve helped students and lecturers understand the gem of a story behind even the most complex academic papers.
  • Books and articles: I’ve written and edited ESL textbooks and articles.
  • English curriculum: I have written curricula that has been used by thousands of teachers.

I can help you become the master of the English language, and of your own story.
