Обо мне

Hi there! My name is Liz, I'm from Michigan, USA, and I've been working as an English teacher in Spain the last nine years. Both in language academies and in private lessons, I have taught everything from conversation classes to exam preparation, specifically for the Aptis, Cambridge (B1-C2), IELTS, and TOEFL exams. More recently, I've also started working online, tutoring Chinese high school students in the USA in Spanish, which is how I really got into online teaching.

I have a Bachelor degree in Spanish from Michigan State University, as well as a State of Michigan teaching certificate for teaching Spanish, English as a Second Language (TESOL), and Psychology at the secondary level. I'm also certified in medical translation (English-->Spanish)!

I would consider my teaching style as quite eclectic and adaptable. My main focus in on communication, and I really enjoy pulling cultural references into my lessons. I believe that teenagers and adults who want to learn a new language or improve their skills need to be motivated in their classes by finding common ground with their teacher. Both need to see where the student is starting from, how far they want to go with the language, and the best way to get there for that particular student.

Fun facts about me: I did artistic gymnastics for 15 years in the USA, and now I dance classical ballet on pointe! Also, the reason I moved to northern Spain is because I fell in love with it on my study abroad!
