Hello, my name is Amanda Bowen and I'm 27 years old and currently living in United States. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since May 2015. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I love diversity. Right now, however, I live in an area of the United States where there is not very much lingual diversity. So, I am using the internet to reach across oceans and to other parts of my own country to teach. I love the opportunity that Skype will give us to learn from each other - me about your culture, and you about my language.

My education and passions have led me to travel to Peru, France, Costa Rica, Turkey, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Greece, Belgium, Spain, and Chile. I speak intermediate level French, and minimal Spanish.

If you are a legal resident of the United States and would like help passing a US citizenship test, completing your High School Equivalency Exam, or obtaining employment, I would like to help you work on these goals!

Qualifications & Experience

Bachelor of Science in Communicative Disorders from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, May 2012.

Cambridge English Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) (QCF), December 2013.

Central Wisconsin Literacy Council Program Assistant, March 2014 - November 2014.

Private Tutor June 2013 - Present.

Teaching Approach

My approach is communicative and relevant. The focus during your sessions is on YOU, the student. You will practice language expression, comprehension, and fluency.

Materials are drawn from the Literacy Forward curriculum, online and in-print sources, as well as areas specific to your interests.

During each of your sessions, you will reach measurable goals, receive feedback on your performance, and have fun!

I'll be more aware of the use of articles in the next class.

Thanks to you, I'm finding it less difficult to detect my mistakes as I speak.

During the lesson, I was able to make the best use of words I know to express my opinion for the tpoic.

The topics are a little bit complicated so I enjoyed discussion.
