English conversation / grammar / pronunciation all levels
I am educated to university level and gained a Cambridge CELTA from Reading College in the United Kingdom. I have studied French, German and Spanish and have lived in France. I have travelled quite extensively and now live in Mexico where I have been for the last eight years.
I have 8 years' teaching experience with adults and young people of all levels and from many different countries. I currently work as an online teacher for the British Council and give classes at International House and Boston College here in Cuernavaca.
I have experience with groups and individuals alike and very much enjoy both dynamics. It must be said, however, that the potential for improvement with one to one classes is enormous. Whether working on natural conversation or devloping specific skills, it's all about you!
Experience: 8 years
My name is Sarah and I am a native English speaker from Reading in the south east of England. I offer effective classes which are carefully tailored to the student's individual needs. From IELTS preparation, pronunciation work using the international phonetic alphabet to conversation (student led, varied and stimulating), role play (e.g. interview practice) and skills focused lessons (listening, reading and writing). My aim is to motivate, bring a sense of fun to the learning process and improve your English!
As a learner of languages myself, I fully understand both the frustration and satisfaction that learning a language involves and also the enormous difference that language acquisition can make to our lives.
I have a neutral British accent and will use level and age appropriate material (articles, programmes, songs) from trusted sources (e.g. BBC) to help bring the language to life. As well as skills and grammar, we will work on lexis, idioms, and fluency to give your English a lovely, natural sound.
Please feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute class during which we can discuss your needs, expectations and a possible schedule. I really look forward to working with you!
