I'm Hannah, 36, from the United Kingdom and after 5 years teaching in the classroom and online, I'm now very excited to be here on Verbling!
In 2015, I spent 6 months in Central America, working in rural communities and teaching children and adults. I realised I LOVE teaching English as a foreign language and started to pursue this career. I studied Psychology and Sociology (BSc) and Youth and Community Work (MA) at University and in 2016, I completed a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) qualification in Barcelona. Since then I've been teaching children, teenagers and adults in private language academies. I have taught A1/beginners classes right up to C1 and proficiency level. I have experience teaching one-to-one and group classes, and enjoy both.

My teaching style:
1. It's very important that my students SELF CORRECT whenever possible. Don't worry, I can help you too!
2. That the material I used is INTERESTING and engaging for my students- if there's something that you're particularly interested in, tell me!
3. PERFECTION DOESN'T EXIST. I'm learning Spanish so I know how frustrating it can be not to get everything right, but the most important thing is that you TRY!
My passions include: languages, travel, mindfulness, animal welfare, dance, yoga, compassion and being in nature. What are you passions and interests?
