Über Mich

** I am now taking NEW and CURRENT students - Please message me directly if you are interested in scheduling for a specific day/time, and I will open up my availability for you!

Hello everyone! My name is Kristal and I am a native English speaker from the United States, and I am currently working on my PhD in International Relations and Development. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Masters degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding.

I work full-time as a business professional and work part-time as an online ESL teacher helping students from Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

I am very conversational in my teaching approach, and I believe the more "natural" the teaching style, the more enjoyable the learning experience becomes. My lessons are very fun, and my students always say they feel like they are talking to a friend, rather than sitting in a boring English class.

The majority of my students are adults working for international companies who need conversational practice to master their English and excel at their careers.

If you have any questions or would like to propose an alternate time to meet that is not currently listed, please contact me directly by sending a message.

I look forward to meeting you and seeing you in future classes!
