Hello! My name is Gisselle, and I am a 33 year old woman from the state of Minnesota in the USA. At my core I am a lover of people, languages and communication. Since I was a young girl I have been writing short stories and poetry, and as I grew older and began to travel started learning languages such as Spanish, French, Italian, and a little bit of Vietnamese and Hindi. In the past few years I have lived in New York City, Sydney and Ho Chi Minh city, and I have recently moved to Cairo and am learning some conversational Egyptian Arabic. I love to sing, write, read, cook, watch movies, and record and edit videos. I love the ocean, palm trees, cats and motorbikes.
Me as a Teacher
Hello! Hola! Ciao! Salam alaykoom! I am an enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about language and educating others, with many different styles of teaching available. My experience ranges from working as a personal tutor to teaching classes of up to 30 students while working in Vietnam. I've taught business English online to students in Italy and worked as an American English Coach in Argentina, and love getting to know my students and help you learn in a way that best suits you. I understand that every student is an individual and may require different styles of teaching or guidance, and am flexible to your needs.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons can change depending on the proficiency level of you, the student, and what you desire to learn and practice. Lesson plans can include but are not limited to an introduction of a topic, practice (verbal, writing, reading, listening), proper use of grammar, and a second practice which will focus on comprehension. I enjoy conversational practice because it is interactive with you, gives me a chance to learn more about you, and hear your fluency level and where I can help. This also gives you a chance to practice your language skills and the flexibility to speak and study areas where you might be having a difficult time with.
