Hello, my name is Alayna. I’m an American currently living in Peru. I am a TEFL-Certified master’s degree holder with love of education. I have experience working in educational settings with both children and adults in the USA and abroad. I am a passionate and professional teacher that values a fun and engaging classroom environment.
When I’m not in the classroom I enjoy writing poetry, watching science-fiction films, and being in nature. I'm also an avid traveler and would love to hear about the beautiful places you have been to.
Me as a Teacher
Do you struggle with public speaking? Do you wish you could have more engaging conversations at work or with friends? Would you like to improve your confidence speaking English? Do others have trouble understanding you? Let’s work together towards your specific English goal!
I strive to create highly effective and engaging lesson plans that help my students speak clearly and confidently so that they can be easily understood by other English speakers.

My lessons & teaching style
There may be several reasons you are looking for an English Teacher. Perhaps you want to be considered for a promotion at work? Maybe you desire to travel overseas and would like to be able to communicate? Or possibly you know English, but you lack the confidence to speak casually with others. Whatever your reason or level, I will work with you to ensure that you meet your English learning goal.
My lessons are student-centered, fun, and engaging. I enjoy creating specific lesson plans that can help you reach your goals!

I like the way we connect on different topics with Alayna!
It doesn’t feel like a lesson, but rather chatting in “spill the tea” friends group (in a positive sense of course!) ;)
See you in class!

I have been studying English with Alayna since the middle of May and I am really glad that she is my teacher. After each lesson, I feel my knowledge is improving, now I speak English more confidently than ever 🙂

This is my sixth lesson with Alayna. She is very patient, calm and positive. She helps me with everything I need. I enjoy learning with her and I don’t even notice how quickly time flies. She not only helped me to fix and improve my interviewing skills, but also helped me with my incorrect grammar and pronunciation. Additionally, something that I really like are the materials that she prepares for each class. They are very helpful and allow me to review the lesson after we finished the class. I will come back again to learn english with her for sure!!! ><
