About me

Hello, I'm Kaylen and I'm from Phoenix, Arizona, but currently living in Madrid, Spain. I am a native English speaker and can speak English and Spanish. I love talking about any and all topics: sports, animals, cooking, health, cultural, history, literature, films, outdoors, science/technology, economics, business, and can focus on test preparation.

Since 2014, I have had my Master's and Bachelor's of Arts degrees, and I was a Secondary High School teacher from 2015-2018. Since 2017 I have had my Post-Baccalaureate in Education (teaching) and as of 2018 my TEFL and TEYL (English) certifications. As of 2018, I have been living in Madrid, Spain and am working as a private English teacher where I teach students of all ages and levels. I am also currently playing semi-professional football (soccer) here in Madrid. In my free time, I usually like to do sports, travel, walk my dog, and spend time with my boyfriend and friends.

Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is very fun, free, and engaging. I enjoy the hands on approach and love to give my students things to do, like games or exercises where you can move around and have fun while practising what they have learned in a very encouraging and exciting way. At the same time, I am very flexible and encourage students to tell me what they want/need to learn so I can tailor all of my classes to each individual student. Most importantly, I want my students to enjoy the class and to have fun speaking! I encourage my students to talk as much as possible and then I focus on correction and correct pronunciation.
