Empowering my students to become confident English speakers
italki teacher since Mar 15, 2022
Hi, my name is Hallie! I'm a native American English speaker from Texas, United States.
In my free time, I enjoy reading novels, writing, traveling, walking in nature, trying new foods, playing board games, watching films, and listening to music. I love learning new languages myself (such as Italian and Spanish), so I am empathetic to the language learning process.
Me as a Teacher
I hold a bachelor's degree in communications as well as a certification to teach English as a foreign language. I have five years of professional working experience in the marketing and communications field in the United States, working for an Amazon subsidiary and Facebook.
I have six months of experience private tutoring English to mostly adults at the intermediate level online. I also have experience conducting lessons with beginners, advanced speakers, and children. I can help you prepare to use your English skills for personal conversational use, academic use, or for use in a business environment.
My lessons & teaching style
I use a communicative teaching method, meaning our lessons will be very conversational. Depending on your areas of interest, I also find a lot of value in conducting listening exercises, written activities, or reading articles together.
As I've worked for two Fortune 500 companies in the US, I can help you with your resume, interview preparation (STAR method), leading meetings (virtual and in-person), and writing emails.
You can expect that we will work together to make our lessons very personalized so that they are best suited for your needs, wants, and goals.
