About Me

Hi! My name is Alysa and I am a qualified English teacher from southern California. I have a masters degree in teaching English as a second language and I have spent 3 and a half years teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. Apart from teaching English as a second/foreign language on Verbling, I also teach online for Los Angeles Unified School District as a substitute at the elementary level. In the past, I have used visual aids to help English learners remember vocabulary, grammar, and common phrases. I have also used oral drills, total physical response and gesturing as well as group discussion and presentations to teach my lessons. The immersion method is a good way for students to use the target language without relying so much on their native language and allows them to learn English naturally. I have found this method to be fun and effective. I look forward to teaching you on Verbling!
