italki teacher since Nov 3, 2021
I have 6 years of experience in teaching children and teenagers English on a native level and I have worked for 8 years in an English business and accounting environment. I have studied some other languages myself and therefore I understand the process of learning a new language. In addition to this, I have a Bachelors degree and a TEFL certificate.
I love outdoor activities, especially hiking in the mountains or along the sea with my family and friends. As a family we love cooking and baking and trying out new recipes, as well as inviting friends over with whom to enjoy it.
Me as a Teacher
I love languages and it inspires me to teach and see how my students develop and grow in what they learn. I am patient and kind, as well as dedicated to reach the student's specific goals. I love to encourage and support.
My lessons & teaching style
I customize each lesson or course to fulfill the needs of each individual student. I am available for the practicing of conversational skills, as well as for the teaching of general English, from the Beginner's level up to Advanced. Included here, there will be given attention to speaking, the use of grammar, pronunciation, learning new vocabulary, listening, reading and writing.
If my current calendar doesn't have a time slot open that suits you, please message me and tell me which time will suit you best and I will see if I can open up that time slot for you.

Dear Professor Hester, I greatly appreciate the classes applied and the care in the treatment, I am a beginner in learning the English language and I was never able to develop because of insecurities. In just 1 month and a half of class, the change in my learning is noticeable.
