About Holly

I am a native English speaker and a CELTA certified English teacher. I am very passionate about teaching. I believe learning can be the most rewarding experience if approached in the proper way. I love language and travel. Seeing and experiencing new cultures is one of my favorite things to do. Besides teaching, I also enjoy giving my time to others through volunteer and missions work.

I am currently teaching in the beautiful city of Bucaramanga, Colombia. I teach all different age groups from pre-teens to adults. I specialize in teaching adults who are at a pre-intermediate to advanced level and that have the goal of reaching a fluent level of English speaking. Due to my experience in the marketing sector, I also enjoy teaching students who are learning English for business purposes.

My teaching methodology is very different than many English teachers out there. I avoid using text books as much as possible (though, there are certain circumstances when books can be helpful as a supplement). Instead of the traditional approach to learning I like to follow a more contemporary module. I take many resources that I find to be realistic, authentic and helpful. I like to focus my classes on topics that are interesting in today's modern world, such as technology and global issues.

I do hope to meet you soon and start helping you reach your English language goals!
