italki teacher since Nov 23, 2021
My name is Tamara. I come from Bosnia. I study English language and literature and I am less than one year away from getting the degree and I also have teaching experience. Besides the regular primary and secondary education, I also finished primary music school and a ballet course, where I was very successful. I speak a few languages but my native languages are Serbian and English. I am very creative and ambitious. I like to paint, sing, play the piano, write, play games, travel etc. I went on exchange programs, but the most important one was where I spent a month in the USA learning how to write and implement projects. Also I like to work for charity from time to time.
Me as a Teacher
I am very calm, understanding and I like to work with people. I am very bright and happy and have a good sense of humor. I like to talk with people of any age and I am very good at finding same topics or interests as an icebreaker. I am easygoing and like to make people feel comfortable in my presence.
My lessons & teaching style
I like any kind of teaching (presentations, homework, articles etc.) as long as my student is happy. But what I think is the most natural way of learning English is by conversation, so I like to get my students to talk a bit more and to get rid of the fear of talking no matter the errors or any other kind of their insecurity. Also, when I work with kids, I like to make it more visual by showing them the colors, animals, numbers (or even have some interesting background) through the camera, thus making them more engaged.
