I have seven years of experience instructing English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at the collegiate level, five years of experience working with children and young adults in an EFL context, and three years of curriculum development for competency-based education. I have a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language and second master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This translates into being able to construct meaningful, thoughtful, and sequenced lessons for my learners. I am also in the process of getting my PhD in Applied Linguistics and currently, I work for an all-women's institute in Rwanda. I have a passion for understanding grammatical rules and can easily explain them in a fun way. I also have strong skills in writing and business communication. I am skilled in creative and technical writing and in public speaking. I can support students wanting to learn how to write any essay type, or learn how to speak informatively, persuasively, or for special occasions. I also can provide many language learning tips and tricks that can be done at home to improve language learning. I have taught both online and face-to-face and I am constantly learning another language. This allows me to always put myself in the perspective of the learner so that I can empathetically design learning content. I have lived in the United States, Spain, Peru, Costa Rica, and currently live in Poland. My approach to language teaching is that of teaching language in the learner's context, using materials that the learner can relate to from a socio-cultural perspective, as well as on a personal and professional level. I enjoy getting to know my students' backgrounds so that lesson content can be applicable to their daily lives. Send me a short message on your English goals and your current progress in English.
