Sobre mim

Hello and welcome! My name is Amanda, and I’m from Los Angeles, California. I am a full time English Teacher, and specialize in American English speaking skills, accent training, and language coaching.

I am a TEFL Certified Teacher and have four years of experience in standard classroom, one on one, and online teaching environments. My students range from ages 2 - mature across all skill levels, and I have experience in teaching academic, business, test preparation, and conversational English.

My lessons focus on current events and topics that are applicable to practical, everyday life. However, if your goals are specific (TOEIC, ELITS, Business Communication, etc.) I will tailor our lessons to fit your language aspirations!

Regardless of your lesson type, I focus heavily on accent reduction to help you achieve the specific speech pattern you desire. I also believe that confidence and fluency are equally as important as knowledge, and include organic conversation exercises in my lessons to improve those EFL aspects as well.

I received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), an Emphasis from Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand, and a Master’s Degree from Manchester Metropolitan University in England. Teaching and travelling are my passions, and I feel fortunate to have found a way to intertwine them in my personal and professional life. I have lived in every Southeast Asian country and in several countries throughout Europe, and have formally and informally taught students from all walks of life!

It is of the utmost importance that you feel at ease during our lessons, so I maintain a very peaceful and patient teaching environment. I want every student to feel comfortable with making mistakes and asking questions - they are also an important part of your English language journey!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I highly encourage you to begin by first booking a trial lesson so we can discuss your goals. This will give you a chance to ask questions, sample my teaching style, and allow me to build an appropriately tailored lesson plan prior to our first proper class together.

Each following lesson will include:
- A customized lesson plan
- A PDF sent within 24 hours of class detailing what we learned, corrections, feedback, and optional homework exercises

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
