With about 5 years of experience as an English Teacher, one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. At the age of 19, I formally started working as a professor of Exact Sciences at the Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. We all should be determined to find an objective/career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This perspective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to move to USA thanks to an Ecuadorian scholarship which financed the commencement of my journey in Environmental Eng. focusing on Nanotechnology at Vincennes Univ. IN. There, I had a training at different Departments as a STEM, English and Spanish tutor; which eventually, gave me the chance to learn about the teaching-learning process of Higher Level English and Spanish Classes from Basic Level Classes (focused on the four skills e.g. ESL classes) to Composition I, Composition II, Speech, etc ; from 2015-2018. This past year, I had the chance to gain experience as a English professor for students of all ages. Being a bilingual professional gives me a peculiar characteristic about my teaching techniques, because I have the experience of how challenged could be to learn a completely new language, as well as, the satisfaction to feel this new language as your own. Assuredly, obstacles really do not matter when we strive for more knowledge and innovation because the universe always falls in love with a stubborn soul. So let's get started, all ages are welcome!.

Is English hard to learn?


Yes, English is considered difficult to understand and challenging to master. Due to the assimilation of various influences and the inconsistency of spelling and grammar, it is challenging for native speakers and learners. With all the nuance, it’s a language best suited for learning from professional instructors rather than yourself.

What are some of the hardest things in English to learn?


English has a variety of unpredictable grammar rules, making it very challenging. For example, vowels are not straightforward. There are five main vowels: a, e, i, o, and u. Sometimes the letter “y” also acts as a vowel, but even the five main vowels may behave differently depending on the word. Sentence structure can be very illogical and challenging as well.
