TEFL Certified Native English Speaker With A Smile :D
italki teacher since Dec 16, 2021
Hello, there! My name is Gwen. I am a native English speaker from the USA, currently living in Thailand. I enjoy roller skating, reading (especially science fiction!), traveling, exploring nature, and trying new foods.
I speak Spanish at an intermediate level and Thai at the beginner level. Because I am also learning a new language, I understand how difficult it can be! I will always be encouraging, positive, and patient while you learn. :)
I hold a 120-hour TEFL certificate, with a specialization in online teaching. At University, I studied Fine Art, Jewelry Making, and Art History.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I am encouraging, patient, and kind. I believe that keeping the student's interest and engagement levels high is the key to successful language learning. If we ever run out of things to talk about, I love to play conversation games like "Would You Rather." This keeps my class fun and fresh, never boring!
Important: I do not refund lessons cancelled within 24 hours. When a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours of its start time, I am prevented from earning money for that time. Please reschedule or cancel at least 24 hours before your scheduled lesson.
My lessons & teaching style
My conversation practice lessons will focus on pronunciation, comprehension (understanding), and grammar. These are the essential building blocks of English fluency. I encourage my students to message me any words, sayings, or expressions they don't understand, so that I can help them better comprehend the English they hear every day.
Book a trial lesson with me today to see if my teaching style is a good match for you! :)

I can't count the number of classes I've had with Gwen, but I'm sure there will be many more. Gwen's lessons are pleasant and warmhearted and she always comes up with interesting topics we can talk about. And I like the way she supports and helps me to express myself in a better way. Thank you so much, Gwen!
