My name is Allison, and I'm a native English speaker from Massachusetts, United States and currently living in Spain. I have two years of professional experience teaching English to children in a Spanish school, as well as teaching both children and adults in a 1-on-1 tutoring setting. I've also got a bachelors degree in English, and a 120 hour TESOL certificate. While classes for children are my speciality, I greatly enjoy working with adults too. My education combined with my experience with both age groups enables me to teach people of all ages.
My teaching style with children is very much based around having fun, and making the process of learning English enjoyable. We play games, sing, and laugh throughout class, all while learning new vocabulary, grammar, and phonics. I teach kids of all levels: those who know absolutely zero english, and those who are nearly fluent.
My adult classes are focused primarily on conversation and improving fluency, depending on the individual student's needs. Adults I've taught in the past have had a wide variety of requests: Cambridge exam preparation, industry-specific vocabulary, English for travel, increase fluency, and pronunciation correction. I generally work with adults who have at least a B1 level.
También, hablo español bastante fluido.
Don't hesitate to book a class with me today! I'm looking forward to meeting you in the classroom.
