Hello! My name is Michelle, and I am from the USA. It's so great to meet you!
In university, my major was English education; I am currently earning my Master's in TESOL. I have also been teaching English for over three years. During this time, I taught all kinds of English! This includes business English, conversational English, travel English, TOEIC, TOEFL...everything. Whatever English needs you have, I have experience teaching.
Outside of teaching, I love reading, art, travel, music, drinking coffee, and spending time with my cat. I really enjoy trying new coffee shops and visiting art museums with my friends.
As a teacher, I believe in personal and productive English learning. This means that, first, my teaching style focuses on your needs. When we first meet, we will discuss your needs and goals. This way, I can focus our lessons on your needs and improving your skills.
My lessons also focus on being productive--practicing! I believe that, unless we actually practice what we learn, our skills will not increase as much as we'd like. When I teach, I always ask students to think about the grammar and vocabulary, explain it, and make sentences. I also believe that, when we practice, if we make mistakes, it is okay! Mistakes are part of how we learn.
Lastly, I want to say that in my classes, it is ALWAYS okay to ask questions. If you don't understand me, or have a sudden question, please don't feel free to ask. Let's work together to set English goals and improve your English skills!
