I am from Los Angeles, California. I have a Bachelor´s degree in Classical Philosophy from California State University and an English teaching certification from Oxford Seminars in New York City. I am currently learning Spanish through Verbling, so I can directly relate to the difficulties and joys of being an adult language learner. Let's have a great conversation!
I've taught English in the classroom in Mexico, Thailand, Cambodia and the US. I use my ⚡charisma, ⚡enthusiasm and ⚡organizational skills to create an interesting and unique experience for each student.
My general approach is very organic, relaxed and conversation based. However, a strong foundation in grammar is extremely important! I would be happy to give you traditional grammar lessons. I also feel that to become really fluent in English, you need to engage in dynamic and profound conversations about things that inspire and interest you. Let's read a book together or study a unique idea or concept! Let's study art Psychology, Politics, History, Art, Sociology, Business Management, Self Help, Philosophy, Technology and Science! I am passionate about communication and the exchange of interesting ideas, and this is why I feel that I am a talented teacher. I am comfortable talking about any topic and I have an opinion about everything. I would love to know what you think and feel about everything too!
I can also help you with Business English and test preparation. I would be honored to gently guide you in your English studies with a smile and genuine dedication to the quality of your learning experience. The learning process should be fun and effective! :)
My lessons and methods are modified in order to suit the needs of each student. My general interests include yoga, meditation, hiking, surfing, reading, snowboarding, tennis, creative writing and traveling!
