Hello! My name is Elaine. I am Brazilian / German and I live in Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching English for over 10 years. I have experience with all ages (from 4 yo and up) and all levels (from beginners to teachers course, conversation and proficiency prep courses). I used to own and run a language institute (FISK) in Rio, Brazil for five years and I have taught in public schools in Rio, Brazil for over 8 years.
My academic background consists of a Languages undergraduate degree (PUC-RJ), Masters and PhD in Applied Linguistics (University of Edinburgh - Scotland).
I am very passionate about teaching and I am ready to help students take their English to the next level and achieve their goals. Let's learn in a creative and fun way!
