À propos de moi

I emphasize a balance of speaking, listening, writing, and reading; personal engagement and motivation; using authentic materials; and building rapport so that practice is effective but also fun! My materials consider the student's interests and background and may include films, articles, and music. Activities integrate speaking, listening, writing, and reading practice with a focus on confident communication. The complexity of the language and exercises increase gradually to build a reliable base of knowledge. Evaluation is ongoing, with frequent quizzes to track progress.

I have 8 years of experience working with English learners of all ages: university students tackling international proficiency exams, government administrators and corporate managers, STEM students preparing to study abroad, and children at a brand-new bilingual school. I developed my professional skills through a training program in English language teaching to adults, followed by a research-based masters in applied linguistics, specializing in language acquisition.

My professional background includes writing, customer service, tourism, and sports, with roles spanning four continents. I studied in the US, UK, and Europe, with perspective on various education systems and exams as well as language learning strategies for specific purposes.
