Utilizo la aplicación Zoom para lecciones de inglés interactivas en vivo desde la comodidad de su hogar. Durante cinco años en Suiza, enseñé inglés como segundo idioma a todos los niveles y todas las edades en la Escuela Internacional de Idiomas Inlingua en la ciudad bilingüe de Biel / Bienne. Esto incluyó lecciones tanto grupales como individuales, desde principiantes hasta estudiantes avanzados que estudian para los exámenes TEFL, TOEFL y Proficiency. Después de eso, pasé tres años en España como director de la misma franquicia de idiomas en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, donde mis deberes incluían preparar a los estudiantes para los exámenes, programas para jóvenes de la escuela de verano, lecciones privadas y grupales, coordinar la programación y trabajar con principiantes a través de los intermedios hasta los más avanzados. El método Inlingua se basa en la inmersión total donde todos los diálogos y ejercicios se llevan a cabo únicamente en el idioma de destino. Como tal, he enseñado a miles de estudiantes de todo el mundo, muchos de los cuales yo no tenía ningún conocimiento de su idioma nativo. Mi lengua materna es el inglés americano, pero soy un lingüista apasionado que domina el español, el francés, el alemán, el schviitzertuutsch y el italiano. También he estudiado (o sigo estudiando) árabe, ruso, hindi / urdu, esperanto, portugués, holandés, griego y silbo gomero. Por lo tanto, comprendo íntimamente tanto las estructuras como los escollos que puede conllevar el aprendizaje de idiomas. Esto me da una gran empatía por el alumno y, como tal, me doy cuenta de que hay muchos modos de aprendizaje: un enfoque de "talla única" no es óptimo. Si alguna vez parece haber un callejón sin salida, siempre habrá otras formas en las que pueda abordar los materiales para que se pueda establecer una comprensión profunda y duradera. He trabajado con una gran cantidad de libros de texto y libros de preparación. Si actualmente está utilizando cierto libro o método con el que se siente cómodo, podemos trabajar con eso. De lo contrario, puedo dar mis recomendaciones. Para los estudiantes de nivel intermedio y avanzado, me gusta comenzar con una prueba de nivel para ver qué sujetos domina y con qué áreas se siente menos cómodo (o no está familiarizado). De ahí puedo derivar un plan de estudios adaptado a sus necesidades tanto a largo como a corto plazo. Si realmente quieres aprender inglés como segundo idioma y / o prepararse para un examen de certificación, se debe a si mismo estudiar con un profesor que tenga años de experiencia en las trincheras y que también posea el conocimiento profundo de la asignatura para ofrecerte. a la fluidez total de la manera más rápida y eficiente! ¡Espero poder ayudarle a lograr sus metas en la vida! ~ I use the Zoom app for live interactive ESL lessons from the comfort of your home. For five years in Switzerland, I taught English as a Second Language to all levels and all ages at the Inlingua International School of Languages in the bilingual city of Biel/Bienne. This included both group and one-on-one lessons, from dead beginners through advanced students studying for TEFL, TOEFL, and Proficiency exams. After that, I spent three years in Spain as the director of the same language franchise in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where my duties included prepping students for exams, summer school youth programs, private and group lessons, coordinating scheduling, and working with beginners through intermediate all the way up to the most advanced. The Inlingua method is based on total immersion where all dialog and exercises are conducted solely in the target language. As such I have taught thousands of students from all over the world, many of whom I had no knowledge whatsoever of their native idiom. My mother tongue is American English, but I am an ardent linguist fluent in Spanish, French, German, Schviitzertuutsch, and Italian. I have also studied (or am still studying) Arabic, Russian, Hindi / Urdu, Esperanto, Portuguese, Dutch, Greek, and Silbo Gomero. Therefore, I intimately understand both the structures as well as the pitfalls that language learning can entail. This gives me a great deal of empathy for the learner, and as such, I have the realization that there are many modes of learning – a cookie-cutter “one-size-fits-all” approach is not optimum. If there ever appears to be an impasse, there will always be other ways I am able to approach the materials so that deep and lasting comprehension can be established. I have worked with a great number of textbooks, and prep books. If you are currently using a certain book or method that you are comfortable with, we can work with that. Otherwise, I can give my recommendations. For intermediate and advanced learners, I like to begin with a placement test to see which areas you have mastery of and which areas you are less comfortable (or unfamiliar) with. From that I can derive a curriculum tailored to both your long-term and short-term needs. If you are serious about learning English as a Second Language and/or prepping for a certification exam, you owe it to yourself to study with a teacher who has years of experience in the trenches and also possesses the deep knowledge of the subject to bring you to full fluency the quickest and most efficient way! I look forward to helping you achieve your life goals!

Hello! My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a polyglot, a performing classical pianist, singer, professional educator and a digital nomad :-) I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do. I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, and Russian, as well as a few other languages (Portuguese, French, Italian and some Mandarin), so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language specialist, as I have vast experience not only teaching, but also learning many languages. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have, and I am looking forward to teaching you!

Since 2016, after getting my master, I started teaching English as a second language. I have taught dozen of ESL students. As a former international student, I know the struggle of learning a new language. I can speak and write English as fluently as a native speaker and earned a bachelor, master and doctorate degree in the United States. I am really good with grammar and with my knowledge of French and Spanish, I can compare languages and make grammar much easier to understand for you.

Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', If you need longer lessons just book them consequently. (For example: 30+30) I am well able to help you!

I have been teaching English since 2010. Although I have resided in the United States for years and my accent has changed a little (sounds more like an native speaker), I sometimes play with my accents and embrace the the mix cultures here. In my ESL class, I encourage students to speak out, and to appreciate their accents and their multi-cultural backgrounds. Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multi-cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussions. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special! Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual effort. I have a lot to share with you!
