Hi! My name is Heather! I want to make a difference in your English journey. I want to make you more confident when you speak English because I have given you the tools to easily converse with native speakers. I will also work with you through the kind of content that is specific to your industry or interests.
Ever since I spent time teaching children in Taiwan I have formed a passion for teaching. I said to my boss when I left: if I just had a rocket ship to spend my days here and my nights back home I would do it! Online teaching makes that possible.
Apart from teaching, I enjoy blogging and reading. I also have a seven year old boy who keeps me busy and who has a lot of toys which come in useful in the classroom.
I have a degree in English and Psychology, an Honours in Psychology and a diploma in Early Childhood Education (Montessori). I also have a TEFL certificate.
I have over ten years teaching experience with a wide range of age groups with everybody from toddlers, to pre-schoolers, to primary school children. I’ve also taught overseas in Taiwan and enjoyed being a camp counsellor in America. So I have taught a wide variety of age groups and nationalities.
I have also been teaching adults online for almost a year now, and have recently started teaching children using this method as well. I love the format and flexibility of working on the computer and seeing how my students reach their goals. I’d love to help you reach your goals too!
I like to use a lot of props in the classroom and reward systems for the younger children. I try and use pictures and gestures as much as possible to make the language easier to understand. For adults, we can do role plays or dissect interesting texts to improve your language skills. Whatever your need is, we will work towards achieving it.
