I am a native English speaker from the United States. I currently live in Albania, where I've moved to do volunteer work. I have lived abroad for 8 years now. I have also lived in Hungary and Slovenia. I love learning about other cultures! And, have truly enjoyed living abroad! It has truly enriched my life and helped to satisfy my wanderlust!
I have been tutoring English for about 7 years now-online and offline. I enjoy helping people learn English! It's nice to see students improve and feel more comfortable speaking.
Back in the United States I worked designing language lessons for online learning for a small Indian Tribe in eastern Washington State, which was truly special. I was able to be creative but, it also gave me a head start in the teaching and learning process.
I have many interests and love learning about what interests others.

^^^I look forward to the opportunity to help you improve your English!
7 + years teaching English online and offline.
I have a TESOL certificate from the Canadian Institute of English.
I have learned 25 methods to teach English. I have experience tutoring English to speakers of other languages. I have focused on teaching Conversational English.
I have experience designing language lessons and adapting the lessons to each student.
I have a background in Web Design and Administration. These fields have allowed me to work in a professional and creative manner which I feel is important in helping others to learn English.
My teaching approach is flexible. I feel it should match with the students own needs and wishes.
I am also very patient as I feel the learning process should be natural, not simply based on learning rules.
I think it is important for the student to learn to speak and feel comfortable doing so. So, I feel it is most important to plan lessons around what the student wants to learn. In this way, I think learning becomes more enjoyable and is motivating.
