Private ESL Teacher

I have been teaching ESL for over 11 years now in many distinct areas. I began teaching ESL when I moved to Ecuador in 2009. I worked in a wide array of different academies, Universities, in-company classes and private classes. In 2016 I moved to Seville, Spain to begin my PhD in Philosophy and have continued teaching English in the same capacity. I am specially geared towards exam preparation (Cambridge, TOEFL, APTIS, etc). My intent is always to cater to the students needs. I am very dynamic in my classes and always try and have fun as well as move the student forward on their path to mastering the language. I am also bilingual in Spanish.

After a long struggle personally in 2020 (I lost a few very close friends and a family member to Covid-19), I am ready to get back to teaching. I miss working with children and adults so much!

I am a Certified Teacher in NYS and Florida. I have several decades of experience teaching elementary level to college students in the classroom and online (I teach English online to children in Asia and Africa, isn't that cool?)

I have (2) Bachelor degrees (Political Science and Marketing) and a Masters in Elementary Education, with extensions in Math, Science, Social Studies and English through high school. I have always been active in my own education and I acquired several certificates in various educational topics through Continuing Education courses. I also own my own Arts and Crafts Studio which offers personalized gifts, as well as holds arts and crafts classes for children and adults. We do everything from sewing, knitting, quilting, to woodworking, painting, staining, making ...

I teach my students American English pronunciation, the verb tenses and how they are different from Spanish. In addition to my scheduled lessons I offer my students to practice English 24/7.
I did teach English in Uruguay, from 2017-2018 and I am still teaching today online students in Uruguay.

My English lessons will focus on using grammar, writing and speech in real life situations. As an English teacher, I have much experience with the English structures, vocabulary, and communication skills. We will conduct the lessons only in English, so that you learn the language naturally as you learned your first language, with no translations. This makes it possible to start thinking in the target language and not relying on your mother language. We will learn English in a fun way, utilizing pictures, gestures and more. This is an intensive class which will have you speaking and listening in English as you would in real life.
