自己紹介

Rebecca is a writer and editor in New York. She speaks Spanish and English fluently. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in English, and a Master's Degree in Writing. She is a published author who loves literature and is currently writing a collection of short stories. She lived in Colombia for five years, which is a long story.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
I have a Master's Degree in Writing because my life is about language, communication, and words, so it's not incidental that I'm an ESL teacher in addition to being a writer.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
I've been teaching on Verbling for five years now, which feels like forever! It's given me five years worth of customized teaching materials that I have developed through real people and real relationships with my students.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
I always use a google document for each student. This way, I never forget anything about you or your lessons. Even if one month or one year go by in between your classes, I will still remember that you are an architectural engineer from Peru-- because I wrote it in the document, and took notes about everything you told me.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
You are always able to access your personal document between classes to study and ask me questions.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
Yes! I am a grammar nerd, language nerd, and I love vocabulary lists and pronunciation lists, and I always give homework assignments. Luckily you don't get a grade, so the homework is always optional. We are all adults here.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
Which brings me to kids-- I'll teach older kids (11+) if they are self-motivated and want to learn, but not if they aren't excited about learning English.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
I listen very attentively, and I will never pretend that I understand you if I do not understand you. I listen to every single word you say and I will stop you if there is even one word that I did not understand, and use visual aids to clarify your meaning and help you learn to improve your understandability.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
My most popular classes are in: Writing, Pronunciation, IELTS Test Preparation, Personal Statement Support for University Applications, and Medical Professionals and Students needing support for the language-based aspects of Medicine.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
Surprisingly, not a lot of students have taken advantage of my Spanish fluency-- I promise I really am fluent having lived in Colombia for five years! Try me.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . .
Honestly, some students just need to talk about their lives and ask for advice, because it's hard living in a new country and understanding a new culture. I've made a lot of great friends on this site in that way, and their English always gets better because of these friendships.
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
I speak with a clear, comprehensible New York accent (a North American 'TV accent')

Lateness Policy: I will wait for you for 15 minutes, and if you still have not arrived, then you lose your class, sorry. If you know you can't make it, please use Verbling's cancel feature. If I am five minutes late, it means that I am either preparing for your lesson or with another student, so please be patient. Thank you.
