About me - English

Hello! My name is Andrea and I'm from the U.S. I've been tutoring online for three years. Teaching English to non-English speakers is my favorite subject, because I like to share my enthusiasm about language learning with my students. Sign up for a lesson and we can talk about what you would like to learn in English and how you can reach your goals.

Studying a new language is exciting because there are always new topics and themes to explore. Though I'm a native English speaker, I learn things every day from my students and surroundings. My home is in Brooklyn, New York, so as you can imagine, there are always things going on in this international place. But I also value the online experience and how easy it is to connect with friends, students, and teachers around the world.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a TESOL certificate as well as MFA and BA degrees, and I've taken graduate-level education courses. Before teaching, I worked for many years in business in New York City.

In addition to tutoring, I also have the valuable experience of being a recent online language student. As I've studied Spanish, I have gained first-hand knowledge of being a learner! Seeing both the teacher and student perspectives has broadened my point of view and given me an understanding I would not otherwise have. I'm very empathetic with my students because I know how difficult it can be to communicate in another language.

Teaching Approach

My objective is to advance your English, and to do so, we will work as a team. To begin, you will let me know your goals in studying English, then I'll personalize your lessons. Are you studying for school or work? Do you like to travel? Do you have English-speaking friends? Or maybe studying English is a hobby for you.

No matter what your goal, we will make the lessons fun and enjoyable. You will move closer to achieving your objectives in speaking English. My approach to teaching English is to incorporate the four basic language skills - speaking, writing, listening, and reading - into every lesson. By using these skills simultaneously, a learner can acquire both the productive and comprehensive skills to speak a language fluently. We will identify your existing strengths and fortify the other areas so that you will become a well-rounded English speaker.

If you have specific goals to meet with your English lessons, we will focus your studies accordingly. Are you studying for school or work? Is there a test you’d like to study for? Do you like to travel? Do you have English-speaking friends? I will personalize your lessons and we will work as a team to meet your objectives.

My belief is that learning a language should be enjoyable. Gaining new skills and being able to communicate is a marvelous thing! I will try to make your classes fun and interesting. When you are comfortable, the environment is ideal for learning. One-on-one language lessons should be fun and enjoyable.
