I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies. I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator.
In our online classes, I use a communicative learning approach. This means that all of the activities will be focused on practice and using the target language. From the first class you will be speaking, conjugating verbs and learning new vocabulary.
To make the online classes more interesting and effective, we will use an online whiteboard. The whiteboard allows us to communicate in real time. I can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos. Using the whiteboard tools, you and I will both be able to write and draw on the board. Children especially love being able to use the whiteboard tools. Adults appreciate the extended notes that come up throughout the class.
You will receive an e-mail after each class containing both the class materials and notes for additional independent study. In addition, the Takelessons classroom allows me to record your classes, which will be automatically saved in your Takelessons account for viewing at a later time.
Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.
