Art Historian and Educator with 10 years of teaching experience
italki teacher since Dec 26, 2021
Hello! I'm Erica. I was born in Canada and my family is from Hong Kong. Since I grew up between Toronto and Hong Kong, I speak English and Cantonese fluently.
I have a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education (specializing in teaching English Literature and History), and a Master of Arts in Art History. Currently, I also work in the Education and Programming department of an Art Museum.
I love trying new things and learning new skills. I also enjoy spending time outdoors. A few of my hobbies include snowboarding, downhill mountain biking, and hiking.
Me as a Teacher
I'm a Canadian certified teacher with almost 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience, ranging from kindergarten-level phonics to high school English Literature, History, AP Art History, Fine Arts, and Social Studies. I have taught both in-classrooms and virtually, giving me a perspective of what helps students succeed in both formats. In addition to teaching in a classroom setting, I also have experience tutoring ESL and ELL in all age ranges.
My lessons & teaching style
I am open to teaching any age group. Our sessions can be as formal or as casual as you want them to be! I will cater our sessions to your interest and goals. My job is to help you become more comfortable and confident in speaking, writing, and using the English Language. Whether your goal is to speak confidently, to develop your vocabulary, to read great books with more ease, or to work through that essay for school, I am here to support and facilitate your learning needs.
*While I will work with students on daily school assignments, I do not tutor for standardized test/exam prep.
