** I am currently moving/traveling and am not taking new students at the moment **
Hi! My name is Amelia.
I am an experienced English teacher, who has worked with people of all ages from different regions of the world. I am currently teaching English to children and young adults, focusing on their reading, writing, speaking and IBT TOEFL test taking abilities. I have a B.A. & a B.S. in International Studies and Microbiology, with minors in Spanish and Chemistry as well as a TESOL/TEFL/ESL Diploma. I am also a trained microbiologist, so if you are wanting to learn technical language in a scientific field, look no further.
My passions include; teaching, scuba diving, traveling, making art and environmental science.
As a language learner myself, I believe it is important to practice regularly with native speakers. My goal as your teacher is to help you feel more comfortable and confident in your English abilities. We will spend your first lesson talking about your English goals, strengths, and weaknesses, in order to make a curriculum specific to your personal needs. My teaching methods focus primarily on conversation through debates and discussions, pictures, rhymes, songs and role plays. I look forward to meeting you and helping you along your journey!
