About Me

I believe that when we are teaching about language or the language arts it is important for the teacher to learn as much as possible from the student. Of course, the teacher comes armed with knowledge that is institutional at its core, a knowledge that is at once also necessary. Think of the notion of experience. In poetry for example that comes with reading and writing, either in an academic or recreational context.What I look for in the student learning English or poetry is a desire to acquire the intuitive capacities that the teacher brings with her, as well as the student's own individuality which the teacher also learns from.

Education

Columbia University

University of Amsterdam - Literary and Cultural Analysis, cum laude

For my undergraduate thesis at the University of Amsterdam I deployed Jacques Lacan's writings on desire in order to analyse Emily Dickinson's ' Master' letters and Lana del Rey's Ultraviolence album.

Experience / Qualifications

Author, Letters to Josie

I have been active in student publications with my poetry, and I have performed often at events.
In the modern world, the significance of poetry is overlooked. From Aristotle to Derrida (the range is not comprehensive), literary theory has maintained that a poem's power is measured in its affect. Throughout this course, our goal will not be to make inscrutable poetic analysis - though the first part of the lesson will be spent analysing word choice, meter, line length and spaces of an English poem written between pre-modernism and postmodernism. Rather, through our perusal of poetic form we will be able to ground our work, somewhat modestly, in the English poetic tradition. Before the first class you will send me some of your own work so I know how to build or refine aesthetic temperament. I have been writing poetry for ten years and two years ago I published a chapbook at a press with competitive standards, and I am currently working on a full-length collection. If you wish to take up poetry seriously, time is needed and an eye for detail is essential. I look forward to us broadening our aesthetic sensibilities together.

Jovana
TESOL cetified teacher offers conversational courses as well as a continued work on listening, reading, speaking, and comprehension skills.
During my studies in General Linguistics and Spanish, I did a lot of research on L1 and L2 language acquisition and found out that self-paced learning with the full immersion approach leads to more engaged and successful progress in an online classroom. An honest conversation about goals, dreams, or personal achievements can expand the objectives of each lesson and further boosts students’ confidence. I learned about the immersion approach during my first job at the school here in Belgrade, where I taught and mentored groups of students with special needs who needed specifically tailored classes in which they would make a more relatable connection to the language in order to conquer it. That was one of the most meaningful and joyful years of my life. During my work at BetaKid, my enthusiasm was shared by hundreds of students who have remained loyal to me to this day. I want to be a valuable resource for students. I prefer to discuss many different topics and carefully integrate them into previously introduced contexts. That way we can target the vocabulary or grammar of the day so that students can make connections and expand their opinions as well as their knowledge. In my teaching, I always strive to make my students feel heard and understood. On the whole, I have an incredible passion for my profession and would love to share my enthusiasm with learners on this platform! I hope to hear from you soon!

English Conversation - Learn to speak fluent English with a neutral accent
Learn basic English grammar, tenses, and vocabulary to become fluent in everyday conversation with a neutral accent. I will provide several real-life scenarios and encourage students to hold hesitation-free conversations with a pleasant accent. Regardless of the many languages, one is fortunate to be fluent in, English takes its place as one of the world’s predominant forms of communication with its influences extending over as many as +2 billion people globally. Where it all started Many of you will be forgiven for thinking that studying an English Language course consists of English grammar more than anything else. While English grammar does play a part when taking courses to improve English overall, it is but a small part of the overall curriculum where one becomes immersed in a history that was partly influenced by myths, battles, and legends on one hand, and the everyday workings of its various social class on the other. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the English language itself really took off with the invasion of Britain during the 5th century. Three Germanic tribes, the Jutes, Saxons and Angles were seeking new lands to conquer and crossed over from the North Sea. It must be noted that the English language we know and study through various English language courses today had yet to be created as the inhabitants of Britain spoke various dialects of the Celtic language.
