<<Please note that I make my schedule (which includes non-Verbling obligations) one week in advance - I will accept short-notice bookings when possible. My availability reflects time slots when we can potentially schedule weekly classes. However, I am currently only accepting students who are committed to meeting regularly, around the same time each week.>>
Hello! My name is Kay. (VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL AL FINAL)
I have about five years of experience teaching English. During that time, I have lived outside of my native country, the United States. Learning Spanish in Chile and Spain - aside from being very fun - has helped me relate to my students.
It's important for teachers and students to be PATIENT, FLEXIBLE and CREATIVE with the learning process. I like to understand my students' goals and make a plan when we start working together. Here are some examples of my past students' goals:
*An economics professor wanted to practice presenting his lectures in English. As he presented a Powerpoint, I noted points where he could make it more effective.
*An intermediate student wanted to practice pronunciation. He chose a topic each week for us to discuss and argue.
These are just two examples of many times when I have created an individualized plan with a student. Don't worry if your goals aren't clear yet! We can work on your plan together.
All my students can expect me to help them improve their VOCABULARY, GRAMMAR and PRONUNCIATION. I will take notes on these points throughout our lessons. As a professional journalist and master's degree candidate, I have dedicated my career to understanding good communication.
Hope to see you at a lesson soon!
Hola! Soy Kay. Tengo 5 años de experiencia como profesora de inglés. He trabajado en Chile y España, así que entiendo las dificultades a las que se enfrentan los hispanohablantes en el proceso de estudiar inglés como segundo idioma.
He trabajado con estudiantes de todos niveles y edades. Antes de empezar un curso, creo que es necesario hacer un plan individual para poder lograr tus objetivos. En todo momento, puedes contar conmigo por la flexibilidad, creatividad y paciencia que es esencial en una profesora de idiomas.
