Experienced ESL teacher & native speaker from the United States with standard American accent 🇺🇸
italki teacher since Mar 24, 2022
I'm a native English speaker from the United States. I lived in New York & North Carolina before moving to Southeast Asia where I started my career as an ESL teacher. I like to ask my students questions about their experiences, interests & opinions. Please don't hesitate to ask me anything! A lesson with me is a safe & anxiety-free space for you to speak freely in. I correct mistakes I hear my students make in grammar, vocabulary & pronunciation. I type the corrections in our chat so students can study them after the lesson is over. I help students replace basic or repetitive words that they might have been overusing with more articulate words/ phrases.
Me as a Teacher
I have years of teaching experience in Southeast Asia where I've taught Business English, conducted IELTS & TOEFL exam preparation, conversation classes and general English lessons. As a result of years of experience as an educator, I have developed effective language teaching strategies. I help strengthen my students' abilities to articulate their thoughts into words clearly and accurately by expanding their vocabulary range and reinforcing their understanding of accurate English grammar. I offer a variety of speaking activities apart from casual conversation in my lessons so I often encourage students to let me know their exact preferences.
My lessons & teaching style
I offer only 2 kinds of lessons: Conversation & Reading
In conversations, I ask students a variety of questions related to their profession, education, hometown, country, experiences, traveling, daily life, social life, achievements, future plans, hobbies, interests, personal opinions on a variety of different topics, goals in learning English, etc. and make necessary corrections.

Mera’s lessons are super inspiring. In our classes, we talked about women power, independence, mental and physical health, culture, education and traveling and so on. I enjoy listening to Mera’s sharing. Also, she would send me some TED videos before our class and we would discuss the ideas and contents related to the videos. I really love this part of our class. She taught me many new and authentic words and expressions. Last but not least, she is a “grammar police”. She is one of the best English teachers that I ever met in my life. I am one of her early students, I have been taking lessons with her for a very long time. Talking to her is like talking to my besties. I am looking forward to taking more of her lessons in the future.

I have always struggled to improve my spoken English, But then I broke the mold and started learning English with Mera. English is not a science. It's a skill. Don't study it. Use it with Mera.

This is my third lesson with Mira. And these three lessons replace three months of self-study for me. It was a very thoughtful and insightful approach to learning and understanding new words. The phenomenon of progress with every lesson. Looking forward to my next class with Mira!
