Hi, everyone! My name is Tina, and I'm from England. The UK is the birthplace of famous scientists, like Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. Did you know cricket is England's national sport? Some people may say it's football (soccer)!
In my spare time, I like to read, write short stories and scripts, cook, cycle, and swim. I also enjoy learning about different cultures.
Me as a Teacher
I have more than five years experience teaching English as a Second Language to children and teenagers in Italy and Taiwan. I am also a volunteer English tutor to young learners in England. I also have experience teaching English to adults face to face, as well as online. I am Cambridge CELTA qualified, and I also have TEFL 150 hours qualification.
I am a patient, friendly, and understanding teacher. I understand that speaking another language can be daunting, especially if you're starting out and you don't know a lot of vocabulary or grammar. However, I will support and encourage you in your learning, and help you become more confident, accurate and fluent.
My lessons & teaching style
Each English lesson strives to be student-centred and immersive. If there are vocabulary or concepts that seem hard to understand, I can guide you to the answers, by asking lots of questions and showing visuals. A good understanding of your needs, goals, and motivations helps me better understand how you learn. My lessons are engaging and fun, and by the end of class, you'll gain some more knowledge of English.

I had my first lesson with Tina. She is very patient and helpful on my English learning. In the class, we have went through my English learning, what I want to improve and what I am struggle with, etc. Tina uses the video software very well and teaches me some words and phrases on the whiteboard when I come across new ones. She also provides students enough space to talk and speak, which I think is very important for students who wants to improve their speaking. Overall, great first class with Tina!

Tina is one of the best teachers I've ever had at Italki. Tina has never lost her patience, she is always full of energy and corrects my mistakes. She is really excited about teaching and then is the lesson also for me engaging. Petr
