    HELLO! By looking for a teacher, you've already taken the first step. About my classes: I have been teaching English for more than three years. I prepare each class especially customized for the student and share with them the agenda and entire lesson via word document. The purpose of the agenda is so the student always has the information about what we did in class, their homework, and the entire lesson for reference. Each class involves a grammar lesson, pronunciation lesson, vocabulary lesson, and of course, plenty of conversation. However, the majority of the class is carried out orally, although accompanied by written materials, so that the student can practice their oral comprehension, train their ear, and get plenty of speaking practice. At the same time, the student can see the written version of the lesson so they practice their reading skills as well. The class isn't a simple conversation, either, as it is very structured. I give written homework and readings, as I like to take the time in class to do activities the student can't do at home alone. I spend a lot of time carefully preparing each class, and because of this I do need to charge a bit more for classes. Your success is my goal, so I'm always available if you send me a message, ask about the homework, ask about anything else in general, change the class date or time, etc. I adapt to each student's needs and tastes. If you'd like me to change anything about the class, I'd love for you to tell me. I prefer you to be happy with the class so you can improve more quickly. It's also super important that you have fun! We will always cover topics of interest to you and you'll learn vocabulary you need and want to learn. I design each class especially for my student as an individual, according to their tastes and lifestyle. About me: I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Language and Literature and I am also a Spanish-English translator and interpreter. I was born in the United States, am a native English speaker and I speak Spanish fluently. I am certified to teach English (TEFL and TESOL) and I have taught all levels in many different settings including private, institutes, schools, and in company. I have a passion for languages which has motivated me to be a language teacher. I am proficient in French, and took three years of Chinese at university. I also dabble in German, Portuguese, and Italian. I am very interested in teaching pedagogy and am constantly improving my technique for giving classes. I like to focus on grammar learning and conversation, talking about topics that the student is interested in or topics that the student needs for their life, work, travel, etc. The improvement and success of my students' are my priority. I adapt to each student's needs and preferences and I always evaluate the student's learning style and best teaching method for him or her, therefore I take my job very seriously. I believe this is crucial because as a professional with a lot of experience, I take care of creating a relaxed yet successful environment it is my job to create a successful class for the student and it should not be the student adapting to me. I have decided to dedicate my life to academia as I love reading, writing, researching, teaching and learning a wide variety of subjects.

Presentation

Hi, I'm Steph! I customize each class & share the class agenda and lesson with the student. The class feels like a conversation but involves grammar, vocab, speaking, and listening, using written materials. You'll practice all skills including writing and reading, which I give for homework, and have access to past lessons. I take advantage of class time to do interactive activities. I spend a lot of time preparing classes and communicating, which is why I charge a bit more for classes.
