Certified TEFL teacher who loves teaching and communicating with people
italki teacher since Feb 21, 2022
I was born in New York and currently live in Kyiv, Ukraine. I received a bachelor's degree from Western Connecticut State University in Political Science in 2009. I love teaching English. Я розумію Українську мову.
Me as a Teacher
I started teaching English in China after I became TEFL certified in 2010. I worked in Phoenix City School in Guangzhou for one year. I have been teaching English in Ukraine for the past 10 years. I work with students of all ages and all levels. I provide students with a lot of speaking practice. I also focus on grammar, and correct students' mistakes.
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that the students should speak more than the teacher. I structure my lessons in a way that encourages the student to speak. Along with speaking, grammar is also very important. I pay attention to grammar and correct mistakes. Sometimes I play games with the students.
