Hi, my name is Erika. I am a qualified ESOL teacher and have extensive experience in teaching English as a second language to international students and migrants. I am a highly organised teacher who prepares interesting lessons to suit my students' needs, and I am always professional and approachable inside and outside the classroom. My hobbies are photography, travel, languages, meeting people from all over the world, gardening, cooking, baking and discussing various interesting topics.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you'd like to find out more; I can't wait to welcome you into my virtual classroom.
I have always loved languages and have learnt them from an early age as a child. This was my main motivation to become a teacher 20 years ago. Apart from teaching I have also spent time contracting to a language school based at one of the universities in Auckland to develop teaching materials for new teachers to help them on their teacher training journey. I recently completed my Master of Education with First Class Honours which I believe enhances my knowledge about education in general and also my teaching practice.
I have experience teaching from a beginner to an advanced level; and have taught students from all over the world. My teaching methods include video/audio materials that I send to students before class to watch/listen to; class notes with focussed exercises relating to the language in the video/audio; focussed grammar, writing, conversation, and reading activities; and also additional content as required by students. I am always perfectly prepared and run my classes in an organised and systematic manner. I encourage my students to spend as much time practising their English outside the classroom as possible. I also welcome emails/messages from my students with any questions at any time.
