My name is Tia and I am fairly new to this platform.
I am from the New York City metro area in New Jersey. I am a certified CELTA English teacher. I teach grammar, reading comprehension, conversational skills for everyday English and I also focus on Business English for professionals since I have a very an administrative background working in HR, Risk Management, Government and Arts related fields.
Although I can be a little demanding , I am also patient and empathetic. I am always encouraging students to go beyond what is required to improve their fluency. I give feedback at the end of each session and provide written evaluations so you can look at them and make improvements on your own time before the next lesson. I believe that you can succeed and you will succeed in increasing your fluency level if you have the right coaching.
For me, it is always a pleasure to share my language and culture and to learn about yours as well. I look forward to meeting you soon.
