Hello English learners! My name is Amy and I am an American English teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience all over the world! I have taught in France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Ireland, China, Kenya, Israel/Palestine, Morocco, Jordan and also in my hometown New York City! I am also a langauge learner (I have studied French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Araic) so I can understand the difficulties of learning a foreign langauge.
When I am not teaching, I am busy with my many hobbies. I enjoy traveling, hiking, meeting new people, trying new foods, listening to music, and playing sports. I am passionate about helping people and volunteer often.
My approach to teaching English is communicative- it's all about speaking! Most of my students studied grammar in school but never had a chance to practice speaking, especially with a native speaker. I will help you to build your confidence speaking and we will practice all other English skills (reading, listening, writing, cultural understanding) within the speaking context.
We will spend our first lesson together getting to know each other. I will assess your level in order to design a conversation lessons that are tailored to you!
I cannot wait to meet with you and help you to improve your English!
