Talk to almost anyone who took the SAT, and they’ll likely cringe when you ask them to describe the experience. “SAT word” is synonymous with “big, annoying word I had to learn for an arbitrary test, then never used again.” Now, the prospect of helping the next generation prepare is a uniquely daunting task. Things have gotten slightly better with computer programs, but let’s be honest: kids today aren’t much more fond of those than we were of flashcards. No matter how one prepares, it seems that “SAT words” are doomed to forever be unpleasant…
…You’re sick of flashcards
…You’re sick of study guides
…You’re sick of expensive courses & tutors
Vocabbett utilizes unique, research-backed strategies to help students improve their vocabulary. Mimicking how the brain learned its native tongue, I specialize in creating vocabulary-rich content where students encounter new words in context. I believe we instinctively fight traditional learning methods – like flashcards and study guides – because they’re not how our brain has been trained to learn language. Similar to how immersion is the best way to learn a new language, I believe contextual, story-based learning is the best way to learn new words in your first language, too.

A former English and history teacher, I founded Vocabbett to help students improve their vocabulary…and actually enjoy the process!
With a background in traveling and languages — I spent years studying abroad across Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East throughout high school and college — I am well-acquainted with what works and what doesn’t when it comes to language acquisition.
The way I see it, improving your English vocabulary is little different than learning a new language. The quickest way to accomplish it is through immersion, which is why my method utilizes a storytelling-based, “immersion” method — replacing foreign words with “big” English ones!
Improving your vocabulary doesn’t have to be hard, painful, or boring. It can be a weekly part of life that your students barely even notice! It can be a podcast at breakfast or a conversation over dinner.
Your students deserve to enjoy their education, and I’m here to help make that happen.
