Hi, I'm Karen, I'm a CELTA trained English teacher from Ireland with over four years of experience (my accent is very neutral, don't worry!)
I've taught in private language schools in Spain and Australia to students of all ages/ nationalities/ levels.
I've recently moved to Budapest, Hungary, where I am currently teaching online on a full-time basis.
Generally, the main reason why people want to learn English is because they want to learn how to SPEAK. If you can speak English, you can travel, work, and study anywhere in the world!
For this reason, my style of teaching is mostly based on speaking.
I always give INSTANT CORRECTION because I firmly believe that this is the most effective way for the student to learn (if the teacher waits until later in the conversation to give a correction, you will probably have already forgotten what you said!).
I will highlight your mistake (for example, I will tell you if it's a preposition error, pronunciation error, or perhaps the wrong tense) and once you have understood the correction, you will repeat the sentence again to reinforce what you have just learned.
Soon you will be correcting yourself without me prompting you at all!
Book a trial lesson with me today, and see for yourself! :)
