Hi! My name is Hyland Slade, I am an English teacher from Virginia, USA, and I am currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I have a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from James Madison University, where I specialized in International Relations and European Studies. I have a TESOL certification through Trinity College London, and am currently enrolled in a Developing Teacher course with TEFL Iberia in Barcelona. My teaching philosophy is based on student-centered learning and the communicative approach, and focusing on the needs of the student to help them improve. I have experience teaching both online and in the classroom. I am very energetic, patient, and confident in my teaching abilities. Let's improve your English!
