My name is Kayla Merrill and I teach English to speakers of other languages. I graduated with my BA in Linguistics in December of 2018 from Brigham Young University and with a minor and certificate in TESOL. After learning a new language myself (French), I wanted to share the experience I had with others. I then decided to minor in TESOL. The experiences I've had while studying in the States and abroad, volunteering with refugees, tutoring students, and teaching for a year have encouraged me to continue teaching English.
I teach in the communicative teaching style. I view language learning as a way to expand one's mind, to open new opportunities for students, and to teach them more about themselves and the world that they didn't know before.
