Hello! Very nice to meet you. So you want to gain confidence in your English skills? Well done for taking the first step by joining Verbling. So, let me tell you a little bit about me, my teaching experience, and of course, my teaching methods!
I have four years of teaching experience in different countries, I am TEFL certified, and have been working as a trilingual trekking guide for three years in Chile.
I love learning new languages, and sharing this experience with others. As I was brought up in an English only speaking household, I understand the difficulties of beginning to learn a new language.
During my degree I regularly volunteered to work at Bethnal Green Academy helping students with their Spanish oral skills. I also gained a year of teaching experience when I worked in central Chile during my year abroad teaching English to university students. During this time I also privately tutored various adult students.
My last teaching experience was during my time living in China. Students were aged 18+ and my time there involved teaching beginner/intermediate to my regular classes, and tutoring privately the top students that wished to study abroad and to prepare them for advanced level exams.
My approach to teaching is perfect for those who also have a keen interest for learning about culture as well as the English language. Using the 4 basic language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), I like to help my students gain confidence in their abilities by adapting the lessons to fit to not just their level of proficiency, but also their interests.
