*I teach English to adult students.* Are you beginner, intermediate or advanced level? I can help you! Do you want to start speaking English immediately? Would you like to practise speaking in English, but feel too nervous? Do you want to learn with a patient teacher, who can help you feel more confident speaking English, in a relaxed and welcoming environment? Do you want your mistakes to be corrected? I can offer you all of those things! *Mira abajo para información en español*.
I'm Mary, from Manchester, in the UK. I've been teaching English as a foreign language for almost 10 years and am CELTA certified.
I teach every level of English, from beginner to advanced level. I teach all nationalities, but I specialise in teaching hispanohablantes. I'm very familiar with the typical mistakes Spanish speakers make in English, such as with pronunciation and how to overcome them.
My teaching style is individualised. I like to get to know my students and plan lessons around their strengths and weaknesses, interests and learning goals. I provide interactive welcoming classes, with the main emphasis on getting you to speak English as much as you can immediately. I'm also a very patient teacher.
I have taught students from all over the world, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America. I have also lived and worked in Colombia and Spain, teaching English as a foreign language.
I understand the challenges involved in learning a foreign language. I have been learning Spanish for a number of years, but know that with time, patience and a good teacher, it's possible to reach the level you are aiming for!
**Unfortunately I don't teach children, because it isn't an area I specialise in.**
¡Hola a todos! Soy Mary de Manchester, Reino Unido. Llevo casi 10 años enseñando inglés como lengua extranjera y soy profesora certificada (CELTA). Tengo mucha experiencia dictando clases a los hispanohablantes y entiendo los problemas comunes en que se puede fallar con el inglés, por ejemplo la pronunciación. Dicto clases desde nivel principiante hasta avanzado. Soy muy paciente y mis clases son muy interactivas. La enfasis en mis clases es que los estudiantes hablen en inglés todo lo posible inmediatamente y que sigan mejorando. íSaludos!
