Me as a Teacher
I'm here to encourage, motivate and help you have fun speaking! Sometimes it can feel stressful, but let me change that for you!
I’ve been an Italki tutor since 2012 and have taught English in S. Korea and Taiwan to children and teens. This is a serious passion of mine and my full time position. I love to help others improve their confidence in speaking english fluently.
It's a wonderful thing getting to know people from other countries and being able to learn about their countries, cultures, personalities and connecting with them through english.
*I only teach adult language learners, thank you!
My lessons & teaching style
In our sessions we will have interesting and informal conversations, introduce or review phrases and vocabulary for your trip abroad, role play various work scenarios where you would be required to use english, and emphasize on your speaking skills, so that can you gain confidence!
Once you schedule your trial session, I will follow up and ask what topics you would like to focus on and your goals so that I can get to know you better before we talk! During our trial, I will assess your speaking level, and talk about the areas you could improve upon. Even if you decide this isn’t a fit for you, you will still get an idea of how to improve and what resources you can rely on!
I really like Beth`s lessons. She`s open-minded, patient, kind and very supportive. Her lessons always well-organized and she prepares entertaining, relevant and useful material to every lesson. She`s very interesting person to talk to. I like the way she thinks when we discussing pictures and imagine stories behind them. She always encourages me and I learnt a lot from her lessons. Thanks:) Looking forward next lesson :)

The lessons have helped me a lot, especially my confidence level. I had an interview last month, and it went well and smooth. After many interview practices with Beth, I felt pretty confidence and prepared at that day, I was able to answer all the interview questions smoothly. I just heard back from the interviewers, and I receive the offer from them! Beth always encourages me to speak and believes I can do it. I still take the lessons with Beth because I enjoy the classes with her and I want to continually improve my communication skills.

Today we talked about various methods we can use to elevate our language skills. In other words, we were learning English by talking about how to do it. I'm glad that Beth is such an open-minded person and always willing to create kind of a safe space where I can feel comfortable and ready to take on any challenge I come across. I already can't wait for another lesson. Thank you, Beth, for today and see you on Friday :-)
