My name is Ana and I’m from Australia. I have a degree in English Literature and Linguistics. My first teaching job was as a grade 4 primary school teacher. For the last 10 years or so I’ve been an ESL tutor in both group and one-to-one lessons.
I am experienced in teaching children online as I have worked in online schools specialized in children’s courses. My teaching style is to keep the lesson fun and creative by singing playing games and I use a lot of props such as animals, flashcards and rewarding systems to motivate my students and keep them engaged.
A big part of my teaching career has been as an online ESL teacher, which I have found quite exciting because it gives me the chance to meet students from all over the world plus teaching online can be really exciting with all the modern interactive tools available.
I also work with adults who wish to improve their General English skills or Business skills so to communicate with other people in English when travelling or in their workplace and I also prepare students for International exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, CPE and FCE which are required when entering a University or moving abroad. I also help students with more professional needs such as Law, Finance or Tourism.
I'm specialised in teaching grammar so I will help you understand every grammar point and use it in your speaking and writing.
In my free time I love to draw and cook. I think the creativity of drawing and cooking is what really excites me, and teaching can also be exactly that! However, difficulties in this job are inevitable, but overcoming them contributes to the conquest of even greater peaks. Hope to see you in my classroom soon!
