Hello! I am an American English Teacher living in Spain. I come with many years of teaching experience! I have taught adults of all levels over the Internet and in-person. I like to tailor my classes to your needs. I speak Spanish, so if that is your first language and you would prefer to discuss the class details in Spanish, that is fine too!
***When you book a trial lesson, please send me a message about who the class is for (child or adult) and what their level is. It really helps me to plan the best class possible that way!***
I teach both adults and children. I like to keep my classes fun and as though you were speaking with a friend. Language-learning can be lots of fun and so I prefer to teach my classes that way!
In the United States, I worked as a teacher's aide in a classroom of children ages 6-9-years-old for two years. I also coordinated an adult English as a second language program (ESL) for Hispanic adults in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. In this position, I planned ESL curriculum for our students who were divided four different levels. It was in this position that I really practiced my Spanish and became fluent in the language. The majority of my students spoke Spanish as their first language and some started taking our classes with no English at all.
Currently, I live in Spain where I teach English as my job. I work as a language assistant in an elementary school and I teach private classes in Spain. I work with eight different families on a weekly basis. I have extensive experience teaching both children and adults.
It starts with some guided conversation questions and icebreaker activities so that we can get to know each other. Then we will work on a reading or listening activity, and I'll end the class with my feedback.
