Обо мне

Personal Profile:

I am an outgoing person who loves meeting new people and learning new things each day. I am originally from Florida but now reside in Berlin, Germany. I have lived abroad for a little over 6 years. In addition to language instruction, I am a working musician and artist. I produce electronic music, graphic design, & new media art. I have background knowledge in a wide range of topics and am always looking forward to new experiences.


Me as a Teacher:

I started teaching English in 2015, after getting my TEFL and CELTA certifications. At that time, I was living in Asia and teaching to a variety of ESL learners using various teaching methods. About two years ago, I started teaching English online and have since then taught over 1400 lessons. This has helped me to understand how to effectively use Skype, the Internet, and computer-based communication tools for the purpose of teaching English.


My Lessons & Teaching Style:

One of my main goals is to prepare my students for real-life scenarios. To accomplish this, I use articles, videos, and podcasts as modern teaching materials to spark the interest of the students, to discuss, trending topics, and to learn new phrases/vocabulary. In addition to new concepts, we also practice grammar, topic transitions, and storytelling techniques. Combining both of these methods, I prepare my students for traveling, relocation, proficiency exams, and everyday life. If you have a specific goal in mind, please let me know, and I will design lessons catered to your needs.
