italki teacher since Apr 14, 2022
Hello my name is Elena. I live in the USA in the beautiful state of Oregon. I have a husband and 18 month old baby girl. We love exploring Oregon-- its mountains, beaches and forests as well going to visit family in California and Washington states. Pacific Northwest is truly magical!
Me as a Teacher
I have a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and 10+ years of working in higher education. I work as an English instructor at a University in Oregon and I love my job. I help international students brush up their English before starting graduate and undergraduate classes at the University as well as help them improve their study skills.
My lessons & teaching style
I am an energetic and outgoing individual. I am organized and detail-oriented. I can help students improve your general English skills-- listening, speaking, reading, writing. But my personal favorite is teaching English Grammar! I love Grammar and would love to explain "complicate" subjects in an easy-to-comprehend way. Moreover, I will be very happy to share with students more about studying in the US-- my firsthand knowledge of academic skills and study skills needed to succeed at a University in the US. Possible topics to be covered are time management, prioritization, backwards planning, attending office hours etc. Or feel free to suggest what is it that YOU would like to learn from me
