Overview

Welcome to a new world with the English language! Learning a new language is one of the most exciting things you can do for yourself, as it has so many benefits. It opens you up to a whole new world full of different experiences, opportunities and friendships! I am a huge proponent of learning a second language. I love teaching English because I love working with internationals. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I have lived and worked in China, and taught many students of all ages, both in this country and abroad. I am TEFL certified and have a master's degree in psychology. I can tailor your language learning to whatever your goals may be- whether it is for work, school, or social needs. I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. My aim is to provide lessons that are fun and effective. I have endless patience for language learning. I have a sharp ear and am concerned with pronunciation.

Please contact me with any questions about location for your lessons, as I cannot tailor my profile here the way I would like. I teach in-home lessons on the Eastside of Seattle. Students outside of this area, I generally meet at a library closer to me.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely, Rebecca

Experience

ESL Teacher
Feb 2014 - Present
Self-Employed

I provide high quality, professional, in-home English language instruction in the greater Seattle area. My students are young adults or adults, from all over the world. Whether my students are professionals, their family, or adult students, these students find themselves living in this country and needing to improve their English. I provide several short-term and long-term options for my students to achieve their language goals. I also provide emotional support for internationals who struggle with adjusting to expatriation and culture shock. I provide resources, information, education, and support. This is turn, creates confidence, which also ensures greater success in reaching learning goals.

In order for the best opportunities to be available to them for their future, it is imperative for Chinese children to learn the English language; I made this possible, by creating fun, successful relationships with the children (aged 5-15) and their parents. I provided inspiring, interactive lessons, and incorporated a well-rounded approach in order to ensure that different types of learners were all able to learn successfully in my classroom.

Worked closely with the children and their parents in order to support them through our language immersion program- a very rare and unconventional method not utilized by other local foreign language schools.

· ESL · In home Rebecca is an excellent English teacher. My son loves working with her. She helps him building self-confidence. She teaches him speaking , correcting pronunciation, learning grammar and increasing vocabulary. She is a knowledgeable and professional teacher. She recommends some books that my son are interested in. Highly recommend Rebecca!

· ESL · In home Rebecca has been amazing English teacher for our 12 year old daughter who didn't know almost any English when she started. My daughter is quite shy and not very outgoing, but Rebecca has had great patience to work with her. She has managed to create a great relationship with my daughter and our all family love her now. :) Every lesson Rebecca has a plan that is adjusted to the student's level and interests. Our country of origin is Finland and native language Finnish.
