Remote ESL Teacher - children & adults - relaxed, fun, and authentic! Speak confident English

Methodology

In my classes, we use the communicative language approach. Grammar lessons are brief, and then we use a series of communication-based activities and exercises to implement the language point. All lessons come with PDF notes and activities that are sent after class. Students speak a lot throughout every lesson, to maximize practice time and use the English that you already know! Together, we practice listening, reading, and speaking. My lessons are geared towards low-level and intermediate students. I believe that learning a language can be fun and that a relaxed and friendly learning environment supports learning.

Background

I worked at Q-Kids teaching ESL to children in China for over a year. I also spent 6 months teaching English to adults at BLI Language School in Montreal. Now, I teach privately over zoom. Most of my sessions are one-on-one so that students can receive completely customized lessons.
