À propos de moi

Hello! My name is Ruth, and I would love to help you with your English! I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have been teaching English for 5 years to people from around the world who have moved to the USA, and 3 years at a summer camp in Russia. I do have a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and I have taught all levels from beginner to advanced.

More than anything I love to see and hear your progress in English. I teach grammar, reading, writing and speaking, but I probably tend to favor speaking/conversation/phonetics. There are a couple reasons for this: Firstly, when I am learning a language, speaking is always the most difficult aspect for me - in part because it has the potential to be the most embarrassing, and no one likes making mistakes. Secondly, speaking is the most difficult to master for many people because it is used less often, especially when you do not have to use English on a daily basis. It is easy to find books and movies in English to work on reading or listening, but finding someone to talk to can be much more difficult.

I do my best to create a safe and supportive atmosphere where you can practice and learn and make mistakes. I love answering questions and seeing faces light up when you suddenly understand.

I hope to see you in a lesson soon!
