Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hello, thanks for visiting my page! My name is Amanda.

My name is Amanda. I am an American ESL teacher originally from the little state of Oklahoma (north of Texas). I have lived in many states in the U.S., and a few different countries. Currently I am in Sweden, where I teach English at an international school. I have been teaching English for two years, and I have been working for the past ten years, in a variety of fields, including education and administration. I hold a dual-master's degree from George Mason University, in Virginia, and the University of Malta, in Malta, in international studies. Since I love learning about different cultures and ways of living, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Cultural Anthropology. I am a very patient and motivating teacher with cultural sensitivity. I hold a 160 Hour TEFL Certificate and I also have a certificate in teaching and learning from Oklahoma State University. Teaching English is my passion, and I love that I can teach English, and also travel to my favorite destinations and meet the most interesting people at the same time. Each of my lessons are 30 minutes long, as I have found this to be much more convenient for my students than a traditional one hour session.

I love traveling and meeting people from different countries! I also enjoy learning new languages, yoga, and nature hikes! My favorite country remains Italy, as the atmosphere and rich history are really incredible.

Teaching Approach

Each of my lessons are 30 minutes long. My teaching style is professional and relaxed. I like to make sure my students feel comfortable. You don’t have to worry about making mistakes. This is important because in my lessons I want you to talk! I love listening to my students' stories and helping them sound more natural!

I will help you learn and improve your English speaking, listening, and reading skills, through a variety of methods, and in all areas you want to improve.

- Guide the students through reading exercises and have subject-focused conversation

- Assist students in pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary understanding

- Teach business English

- And much more! All I ask is that you come ready to engage, learn, and improve your English.

If you have any questions or ideas for how you would like to be taught, you can bring them to me and we can make a more personalized lesson plan!

I am a very patient and motivating teacher with cultural sensitivity and respect. I greatly enjoy helping my students succeed in meeting their English language goals, and I am looking forward to helping you reach yours!
