About Me

Hi there!

My name is Caitlin, and I'm from the United States. I am a TEFL certified teacher and have been teaching in Italy for the past year. I have experience with all ages - from primary students to adults - and all skill levels, from very basic to advanced language learners.

I have experience not only with general English, but also with test preparation. I can prepare you for IELTS, Cambridge - KET, PET, First Certificate, Advanced, and even Trinity.

I have a communicative approach to my teaching, because for me, speaking is essential to learning a new language. In my lessons we will also focus on the three other main components of language learning: reading, listening, and writing. Grammar and new vocabulary are some of my favorite things to teach, so, expect to gain a deeper knowledge in those areas through the four main skill sets.

My background is not only in Education - I graduated from NYU in 2014 where my focus was on communications and creative writing, so the English language is something that is very important to me, but very much in a working way. I also have a paralegal certification from Duke University, so if legal vocabulary is something you need, I can help with that. I've worked in television, HR, retail, and education, which I think enhances my ability to teach as I've had many experiences working directly with people.

It's cliche, but I think learning a new language should be enjoyable and interesting, so my lessons always incorporate diverse readings, listenings, and discussions. We'll definitely have fun!
