Hi, my name is Carissa and I love learning and teaching new languages. I started teaching English to 4th-grade students from less privileged backgrounds back in 2016, and I instantly fell in love with it. I Just completed my Bsc degree in South Africa, and I am currently working on obtaining my TEFL Certificate. I am also currently learning Portuguese, so rest assured that I know the struggles of learning a new language, and in this class, we will deal with these challenges together. I am patient, organized, and understanding.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I will do my best to ensure that the student is comfortable and gets the best out of the time we spend learning.
My lessons & teaching style
I love using visuals when teaching because I believe we remember and understand things better when we can see the information. I will be flexible and work according to the student's needs and preferences and contribute where needed. I will definitely come prepared with learning material in the form of presentations, image files, or video files.
