Über Mich

Hi guys/Ciao a tutti! My name's Alannah and I'm a CELTA (Cambridge University) qualified English teacher from western Canada but I've spent the past 5 years in Italy. I've been teaching English in-person for 12 years and online for about 2 years. I specialize in helping INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED learners reach their fluency goals, whether it be for business/career advancement, travel or 'just because.'

:::::I recommend that you contact me for a trial, so we can discuss your needs and work out a plan - just for you.:::::
--------------------------------------
I use a variety of conversation techniques and topics. I recognize that each person is different and has separate, unique requirements. I'm confident that you'll be satisfied and excited to learn English with me!
--------------------------------------
I've studied and learned a second language (Italian), so I know exactly what types of challenges you, as a learner, are faced with. It can be overwhelming and even stressful sometimes - but it really shouldn't be! I'm here to help you relax and enjoy the English learning process.

I hope you're ready to continue your English journey with me!
--------------------------------------
NOTE: One of my most popular lessons is the 'Conversation with Correction' option: In this lesson, I write down 1-2 pages of your errors during our conversation. As we approach the end of the lesson, I scan the document and share my screen with you. We then correct your errors together. You try to recognize your errors and I help you fine-tune the corrections, providing clear explanations. Once the lesson is over, I scan the document again (this time, with corrections) and send it to you via Verbling's message system. This way, you have a visual copy of your mistakes and can review new vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar structures. This is a great tool to help track your progress and see the improvements you're making / what you need to continue working on.
