I am a certified English teacher through the TEFL Academy (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). I received my certification in 2014. In doing so, I have had in-class experience working with a 5-year-old Russian girl, and a 12 year old Mexican boy. I have also lived in France for 2 years where I have worked extensively with French children ranging in age from 5-14 in regards to English speaking and writing.
About Simone M.

Hello! My name is Simone! Let's speak English! I have taught English since 2012 to both children and adults of all levels. I try my best to make learning fun! I'm an open-minded, friendly person who loves languages. I like to focus on speaking, because it is often the most difficult or frustrating part of language (especially when you want to express yourself!). However, I also have a strange passion for grammar! I try to make grammar rules as clear and simple as possible, and will show you how to use them in everyday conversation. I'm here to work through your difficulties, so don't hesitate to ask me any and all questions!

I've been getting English classes with Simone for 8 months. She's been always very nice and willing to teach. If you ask her even something out of the topic, she always will be there to help you and answer your countless questions :). Thank you, Simone, for your very fun and teaching classes and perfect personality.

I gave private lessons to children from various different families between the ages of 9 and 15. I worked for one family in particular for 3 years and became very close to the family! I focused on anything that the children found to be difficult at school while also revising grammar points and practicing oral expression.
