Hello! My name is Athelston Fitt but you can call me by my nickname, Tel. I'm 30 years old from London, England with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology, 150-hour masters TEFL certificate and currently have 3 years experience as an ESL teacher.
I'm a very passionate teacher, I'm still as excited and driven about teaching as I was on my first day. I always give my all to ensure classes are engaging and fun as possible: who said education needs to be formal and boring? Every individual student learns at their own pace and in different ways so I'm always ready to adapt my teaching methods to suit your personal needs as a learner. I believe my best qualities are my patience, calmness and easy-going manner which has allowed my students to speak English without fear of making mistakes- in fact, I love it when my students make mistakes because I truly believe we learn the most from our mistakes!
My number 1 objective, therefore, is for every one of my students to be confident in English speakers no matter their level.
Travelling is a big passion of mine as I love to experience new places and learn about different cultures which led me to teach English in foreign countries. I just spent the last 3 years teaching in Hanoi, Vietnam and have recently moved to Mexico City, Mexico. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, exercising and playing video games. I'm a huge sports fan, but I particularly enjoy watching, playing and coaching football/soccer. I REALLY like soccer!
I look forward to meeting you and see you soon in class!
