Hi everyone! June 9th will be my last day on Verbling, as I will begin working full-time for my other job. You can still schedule a trial or lesson with me until then, but I recommend looking for a teacher who can commit long-term to your study plans. I'm sorry about this inconvenience!
I'm Carissa! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, of California, USA. I currently live in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I work as a private English tutor at a language center, with students as young as 5 years old, up to adults. Before this, I worked as a 2nd grade teacher in a small town in Thailand.
I enjoy working mainly with teenagers and adults. My focus is NOT on teaching grammar rules!
We will go over useful phrases, vocabulary, and simple questions.
For intermediate/upper intermediate:
I will type dialogues (conversations) between two people. I try to make these relevant to your needs, using everyday language (not formal language that nobody uses!). The focus will be on new vocabulary, listening comprehension, and grammar seen in context
I will give you reading articles (with advanced vocaublary and phrases), and we will discuss your understanding of the article. We will engage in fun debates. If you would like to improve your writing skills, I can give you a prompt to write about, or an article to respond to, and we can go over your writing.
Of course, if it is pure conversation practice that you are interested in, this is totally fine!
You can subscribe for a trial if you're interested in taking a class with me. I'm looking forward to working with you guys!
