I am a native English speaker from The United States, and I have 2 years experience teaching ESL in Mexico. Before that, I worked in US public schools tutoring high school aged students for three years. I have my certification in TESOL from SIT's World Learning Program. I have experience teaching a variety of levels and ages and designing curriculum and class activities.
I am currently living in Barcelona, Spain, where I am obtaining my Master's degree in Global Health.
I have been tutoring on buddyschool since August 2013 and I like it a lot!! One reason is because it is interesting to talk to and get to know people from other parts of the world, listen and share opinions and stories, and discuss current events. It has also been greatly rewarding to watch my students improve their speaking, listening and grammar abilities!
I also speak Spanish, so I understand the struggles and rewards of the language learning process. I am happy to help you reach your goal of becoming a fluent English speaker and to cater classes to your needs and abilities, and to make them fun and informative!
I want my students to feel comfortable directing the classes to their needs and desires for learning but I will also assess your abilities for any errors or difficulties that I notice, and provide you with information and resources for improvement. I am here to help you improve so one expectation you can have from me is that I will push you to improve your speaking in every class!
Students tell me they like my classes because I always prepare something. In my classes we normally focus on an article or video, and use that to build on language development. I will supply to video, article and possibly written homework unless you would feel more comfortable electing the topics and activities, in which case I will be there to support you.
To properly learn English and promote fluency, a class will include elements of education in:
*conversation *proper grammar structures *vocabulary *pronunciation *reading and writing *idioms/expressions
I provide homework after every class if you are interested! I recommend doing as much work outside of our classes as is possible and comfortable for you to maximize your English education!!
If you are interested in taking classes, please schedule a 20 minute trial lesson to discuss your goals and how I can help you meet them!! During the trial I will assess your current ability and advise you on how best I can help you improve.
** Please remember that if you need to reschedule or cancel a class, let me know the day before the class happens! Failure to do so will result in you owning me for a class canceled with short notice. I respect your time, please respect mine!**
To schedule a lesson please message me on buddyschool or contact me directly through skype at user name corinna.irwin.
I charge $16 for a single hour class, but I offer discounts for students who book and pay for multiple classes in a one month period, please inquire!
