About Me

While I currently live in the Netherlands, my hometown is in Texas. I have a great passion for languages, travel, cooking, doing yoga, playing guitar, dancing, and the great outdoors.

My first experience with teaching was in a small Mayan village in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. I taught children and adults for two weeks. That amazing experience ignited my passion for teaching and my desire to continue with it.

I have a deep appreciation for the challenges and joys of language learning as I became fluent in Spanish as an adult learner. My travels in Mexico and South America were greatly enriched due to my Spanish knowledge. I was able to learn more about the cultures and history by thinking and communicating in the local language. I am currently working towards becoming fluent in Dutch. I have also recently started to learn French.

As an English teacher, I am patient and highly motivational towards my students. I create a warm and comfortable environment in the classroom. I am flexible and have a good sense of humor. :)

It is my aim to improve the conversational skills of adult learners of English. I strive to achieve this through strong attention to detail and by delivering specific feedback. I engage the learner in order to make this process a thought-provoking one. In this way, the learner will retain the information and have a better grasp of areas to improve.

Education

I attended the University of North Texas from August 2008 until May 2011.

Below are my details:

Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: Spanish
Minor: Music Education
GPA: 3.7
Honors: Magna Cum Laude

Experience / Qualifications

I have more than five years of English teaching experience. I have taught students in Mexico, South Korea and Vietnam. Additionally, I have taught online classes to children and adults from a wide variety of countries. The class sizes have varied from one-on-one up to sixty-five students in public schools. My students have ranged in age from four to sixty-five years old.

While living in Vietnam, I obtained a CELTA certificate. The certificate is accredited by the University of Cambridge. The course focused on different methods of teaching English to adults.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. We discuss movies, literature, politics, sports, music and anything that two friends might talk about. Role playing, in which we act out situations from everyday life can be a lot of fun. The topics of our conversations largely depend on your interests. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

Carina
Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.

Corinne
English: Pronunciation (British or American). NO grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.
