*Teenagers and adults only please!*
Hey there! :) For the past two summers, I have worked in English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) camps with children and young adults from China, Japan, Italy, Russia, and Korea. Last summer, I received a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification specializing in theatre and collaborative activities and taught lesson plans in a dynamic format. This summer, I chose a camp that prepared students learning English for success in high school. I have also volunteered for two years as an online English tutor for college students and adults, and engaged in classes regarding the politicization of language in schools, teaching and learning a foreign language, and adolescent literacy. I currently volunteer to teach English at the Garces Foundation, a nonprofit in my city.
I am really open in my lessons, depending on the goals of the learner! Whether you have a specific topic or skill in mind or just want to practice to increase your fluency, I can help you to become more confident in your abilities! With practice, you can definitely improve!
I have an upper intermediate level of Spanish, and am actively learning! So you can be sure that I understand the struggle of a language learner, and I will be very patient and empathetic with you :)
