About Me

I'm originally from Miami, Florida. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida. I moved to Prague in 2015 for my TEFL certification to pursue English teaching. I recently moved to Maastricht with my husband as he is pursuing a graduate degree. I enjoy meeting new people from different backgrounds, painting, and spending time outdoors. My students would describe me as reliable, easygoing (which is not the same as too lax ;)), considerate, fun, and creative.

Education

I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida in 2013. I majored in Fine Arts. When I am not teaching, I am running a side business with my husband in which we paint at live events and weddings.

Experience / Qualifications

I received my TEFL Certification in 2015 while living in Prague, Czech Republic. I have taught in all types of settings, many different levels and focuses of English, as well as in groups and one on one lessons.

Sergio
Spanish Lessons for All Levels and Ages by Experienced, Native, Tutor
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world; if you dream of Spain or Latin America, then, learning this language is definitely on your list. Regardless of what you are aiming for with your Spanish level, I can help you. The classes can go from the very basics of conversation to the more complex grammar and writing nuances of the language; I´ll adapt to your needs. Aside from proper exercises, I can recommend books, bands, shows, and movies, so you not only practice your Spanish but also immerse yourself in the culture. My schedule is flexible!

Marco
Private tutoring for English, Italian and Latin. Interactive lessons and conversations, preparation for University.
Hey there! My name is Marco, I am a 21 years old university student from Venice, Italy. I love languages and culture, and I think really the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. This is why in my classes I take great care to ensure that my classes are interactive, so that the students feel engaged and do not get bored. I can help you with all your English needs, reading, speaking and listening. If you want to study at a University in English, I can help you to be prepared by teaching you how to write proper academic papers and avoid the common mistakes non-native speakers make. I also teach Italian and Latin, which I studied extensively in Italy. My teaching style is informal and interactive, as I think the best lesson should feel like a conversation rather than a lecture. I can help you with all your homework needs, and I will add a bit of cultural dimension so you can really feel invested in what you are learning. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information, I am always available and I will respond fast.

Gonzalo
Spanish and English conversation for all skill groups
Many people, over time, lose the ability to converse in a second language after being unable to practice for a long time. This also makes them embarassed to take that first step to talk to people who know the language. By having a space where people can talk with no judgement and encouraging their participation, my lessons allow students to gain confidence and improve their skills in a comfortable environment, discussing topics that they find interesting.

Isabel
English for all levels - taught by a native speaker
Learn English from a native speaker! All levels are welcome, I will tailor the lessons to your needs and help you gain understanding of the language in a fun and interactive way. Tasks could include: help with homework, help with general and basic speech, writing, simple interaction, etc.

English classes for everyone that wants to learn and practice
As a teacher I believe it’s important to focus on the likes of students to help them improve and have a better development. As everything in life learning a language is simpler when you’re dealing with something you like. As part of my experience I taught in schools and students with different profiles and objectives in a language course.
