My name is Alexandra (Sasha) and I am from the U.S. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Maryland. I love traveling, spending time with others, helping people learn new things from my own experiences, and understanding new cultures. After graduating from college, I moved to Madrid, Spain to teach English to kids and adults of all levels, and it's been really amazing so far. I also love learning from other people and expanding my horizons, and I hope I can keep doing so!
I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in psychology and obtained my TEFL certification in March 2017. I am currently living abroad in Madrid, Spain where I am teaching English to kids and adults of all levels. I have experience teaching English in Madrid and Ghana and have tutored in America (around the New York area) for several years. I also have taught English online with a teaching company based in China for about one year, and I really want to continue my teaching experiences!
My teaching style is to connect with the student on as many levels as possible (common interests, experiences, etc.) and then give them a tailored lesson. For example, if the student just wants to focus on conversation, I'm more than happy to keep a conversation flowing casually and logically, while still helping them learn more. I also like to focus on pronunciation and corrections, as I believe that this is crucial to learning a new language. I think that lessons should be determined by the student and not be too strict, and I want the student to learn in the way that is most helpful to him/her.
