My name is Amanda and I am originally from Minnesota, USA and have been living in the Republic of Panama since 2009.
I am a kind and upbeat person; bilingual in English and Spanish. I am TEFL certified and have been teaching English to mostly children and some adults since 2010. I’m a hard worker and a trustworthy person.
The children that I currently teach online range from 3rd grade to 9th grade. The material that I offer are vocabulary practice, creative writing, reading comprehension, basic grammar, and literature reading accompanied by a study guide. Some students like to send me other material that they would like to go over with me such as their homework or other material that they would like to use for class.
The adults that I currently teach online just want conversation and to practice speaking and listening. There really is no structure for this type of class, as all the adults I teach prefer to talk about anything and everything, so no material is used. Some adults though ask me to send them vocabulary homework or reading comprehension homework that they prefer to look at on their own, and later if they have questions they will want to go over it with me during class.
If you are interested in learning more and would like to speak with me, please feel free to send me a message and we'll be in touch.
