Online and in-person Conversational teacher
American native with understanding of basic Italian, and Spanish.
English is my first language.
In the State I grew up in it was imperative to be able to communicate with non native english speaking persons. I think this gives me a great advantage in my instructing.
Experience: 2 years
100% Conversational English environment. Conversations will be tailored to my students needs. Our interaction will be dynamic, interactive, always fun and interesting.
I will assign weekly homework to help solidify your lessons.
Learning English should be a pleasant, fun and enjoyable experience!
Learning a new language can seem overwhelming, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Therefore, I believe that students should expect to laugh at themselves and at me the instructor; as we progress in their study of a foreign language. This fundamental ability can ease the fear and frustration language students may experience from time to time. My approach is a light-hearted one – I choose humor to build our relation and to easy my students frustrations while I guide them in acquiring Conversation English skills.
For the beginning student, I primarily focus my lessons on learning and building a new vocabulary, greetings, salutations, and basic phrases. My secondary focus covers speaking, listening, and complex phrases and sentences.
Benefits of learning with me:
-Tailored to the student's needs;
-Resourceful and up to date English learning materials provided by the teacher;
-100% American Born Fluent English Speaker
