I'm Alison, it's nice to meet you! Learning and teaching are two sides of the same coin, the one that allows us to communicate more effectively with others. Do you like to travel? Are you interested in improving your English skills for work-related reasons? Are you a language lover? I can relate to all of these motives. Let's learn together!
A little bit about my teaching experience thus far: I started teaching ESL when I was living in Italy (between 2014 and 2016)- I worked at a small private language school that offered courses both for young learners (ages 4 to 12) and adults. I had finished high school at the time, with a concentration in foreign languages, and I was a freshman in University.
I soon realized that I liked that line of work, so I decided to come to Boston in order to take the CELTA course and explore different teaching methods. I am currently studying psychology and considering a career in the field of education. My CELTA training greatly influenced my teaching style; I always try to follow it as much as possible, because I believe it successful. But I'm always open to improvement and learning new techniques and perspectives.
My CELTA tutors taught me how to effectively work with different speakers of other languages, and my experience in Europe, along with the fact that I myself was brought up bilingual, has helped me develop a certain perceptivity, useful to work with students from all kinds of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
