Learn Conversational English Through Real Life Experiences.

I specialize in helping people improve their conversation skills in English. The way I do it is I set up a topic depending on the interests of every student and depending on the topi, I introduce the language that we will be using for the situation then we will put it into action by either doing a role-play, conversation activities like brainstorming and asking open-ended questions to get a conversation going.

This class is very flexible so we can work on specific topics that the student is interested in like, business, travel, school, exams, or just basic conversation.

While the student talks, I write down any mistakes and provide feedback at the end of the conversation to give a brief explanation on the parts that the student struggled most with.

The mission in this class is to make it fun, interesting, safe and interactive. Every person has different learning abilities and I believe emotions play a large role in language learning so adapting, safety and practice are the main goals of this class..

Me especializo en ayudar a personas mejorar sus habilidades de conversación en inglés. La forma en que lo hago es preparo un tema, dependiendo de los intereses de cada estudiante y presento el lenguaje que usaremos para la situación y luego lo ponemos en acción haciendo juegos de roles , actividades de conversación como tormenta de ideas y preguntas abiertas para iniciar la conversación.

Esta clase es muy flexible, por lo que podemos trabajar en temas específicos que le interesan al estudiante, como negocios, viajes, escuela, exámenes o simplemente conversación básica.

Mientras el alumno habla, escribo cualquier error y proporciono comentarios al final de la conversación para dar una breve explicación de las partes con las que el alumno tuvo más dificultades.

La misión en esta clase es hacerla divertida, interesante, segura e interactiva. Cada persona tiene diferentes habilidades de aprendizaje y creo que las emociones juegan un papel importante en el aprendizaje de idiomas, por lo que el objetivo principal de esta clase es adaptacion, comodidad y practice.

About Me

''I believe a language is not learned but acquired therefore I think English should be a fun experience where students forget they are even learning. ''

Hi there,

My name is Armando, I am 27 years old. I am from Mexico but was raised in the United States. I am a certified English teacher and have been teaching for over 7 years. I love teaching English because growing up I could see how much people struggled at work, school and everyday like just because they couldn't speak English. Luckily I was able to learn the language at a young age and understand how it works as well as develop an American accent. When I graduated Highschool I decided to help out some of my friends and family to learn English and I started learning another language myself and found great joy doing it so I decided to take it as a career. What I love most about teaching is being able to communicate with people and help them understand the world around them since a lot of what we see today is in English. I am also a surf instructor so I love teaching people new things.

Education

Oak Terrace, Middle School, Highwood, Illinois, U.S.A
Northwood, Jr. Highschool, Highland Park, Illinois, U.S.A

University, El Universal, Certification. Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.

Experience / Qualifications

My first job as a tutor was after receiving my T.K.T (Teachers Knowledge Test) certificate from the University of Cambridge.

I worked for a company called Linguatec where I taught English face to face to a variety of people in both group and individual settings. I spent four years with this company and during my time there I learned how to manage groups of up to 10 people and how to create my own lesson plans that would integrate my students' personal interests such as movies, films or books into the lesson plan so that I could make learning as fun and interesting for them as possible.

I then worked for a company called Berlitz where I taught with their methodology which consisted in Presentation Practice Production. I enjoyed teaching this method and gained a lot from working with this company.

Following this, I worked for an online English teaching company called Open English. This was another great experience for me as I was developing my teaching skills in a completely different way. I was having then to communicate without the tools I'd usually used. This proved to be challenging but I ended up thoroughly enjoying this method of teaching. I used video conference and managed with up to 10 people with guided material, I taught both kids and adults from levels A1 to Business.

I had students from all over the world and the company focused our teaching on everyday articles that were relevant to students' choices. Classes consisted of up to 10 students per class.

University classes (psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, linguistics)
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy and linguistics. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.

Learn How To Read Tarot Cards For Yourself and Others
Tarot is an ancient way to access your deepest emotions and to picture the truth about yourself, others or a situation. While some use it as an instrument to see the future, I prefer to call it a communication tool with your higher self whose language we need to decode. In my classes I introduce you to Tarot and teach you how to perform readings for yourself and others.

| Creative Spanish Lessons Online to Improve Your Abilities or Start from Scratch |
I have always treated my students as individuals with their own story and passions and so I dedicate myself to design my own materials which will match their needs and interests. Because of my studies and indispensable TedTalks I became interested in implementing unconventional student-oriented methods into my everyday teaching. During my classes I use apps such as HeadsUp, BlackStories, Kahoot and Padlet to make them more interactive and motivating. I truly believe that education does not have to be system-determined and in 21st century students deserve to be taught with appropriate technology and so I have started to teach online. I hope you will give it a shot too :)

Introduction to Accounting for first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors
I have prepared a multi-lesson package for new accounting students discussing & unraveling the importance & relevance of accounting, as well as removing the mystery from accounting. I developed this multi-lesson series for a parent who wanted their student to become intimately familiar with accounting before university classes began. I have revised it to become both a necessary and handy primer for the non-accounting major. It is my perennial favorite to teach both first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors – at the request of both the student or parent!

Literature, Russian grammar, phonetics, morphology If you were born in the Russian family far from Russia and language of the country of accommodation was your main language, then the probability of loss of the Russian culture will be so high that hardly you will be able to approve belonging to this nation.
