ENGLISH for Everybody!
I have a bachelors degree in Linguistics from the Uof A in Edmonton, Alta, Canada.
I have worked in language schools, public schools, private schools, collegiate and I ran my own company for several years.
I am also TESL certified
I currently live in Canada with my family and work on call as teacher in the local school district.
Experience: 15 years
I have been an English teacher for the past 15 years. From my early stages until today, I have taught babies as young as 6 months old up to adults that are 90. I have worked with beginners and also hosted advanced classes for those who want to brush up on grammar, learn about specific topics, or just chat in English. I enjoy hearing stories and learning about other cultures and incorporate these into my lessonswith the aid of visuals. I strongly encourage students to speak freely without fear of making mistakes.
While studying, I worked extensively with refugee children from Somalia and Kosova, teaching them English and helping them to adapt to life in Canada. I then moved to Japan and worked in the local public elementary and junior high schools for 2 years. I had conversational lessons in the evening with the locals.
I worked in India and Sri Lanka with Habitat for Humanity and the Earthquake disaster Relief Project.
I travelled extensively around Asia and Oceania before finding myself in Poland. I originally worked in several language schools until I opened my own company. I grew to encompass not only teaching, but proofreading, editing, writing and translating.
I lived in Poland 10 years until my Canadian return 3 years ago.
I enjoy catering lessons to the needs of my students. I can help with all aspects of English; business, medical, IELTS, Cambridge exams, conversation, grammar, literature, general English and technical English. I have worked as a teacher of whole language approach, direct method and group studies. I love getting to know people and can't wait to have conversations with you.
I can provide homework if you want some extra work to do on your own and I will offer feedback on your progress. Each lesson will give you more and more confidence and your English will improve. You will see results after just one lesson!
I can also assist you with editing and proof-reading. I worked for 4 years as a managing editor for an interactive online magazine and gained invaluable experience that won't let YOU down.
