My name is Ivana and I come from Serbia. I graduated in English language and literature in 2002 and started my teaching carrier in 2005. I was born and raised in a bilingual environment and I'm proud of having two native languages, Serbian and Macedonian. My first encounter with the English language happened very early, at the age of 5 and I instantly fell in love with it.
I started my teaching carrier as a classroom teacher and had the opportunity to teach students of all school-age groups, and at the same time, I started giving private lessons to adult students who needed English for their job. In May 2015, I discovered the amazing world of online teaching and since then I've gained a lot of experience teaching students from various countries, such as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Spain, Italy, and many others, including Russia. This experience also inspired me to undertake the TEFL course so I could enhance my abilities even more.
As a teacher, I'm always trying to teach the student not the subject. I think it's essential to understand the student's needs, as everyone has different needs, and adjust the teaching style so the lessons could be productive.
I'm a positive, open-minded person always trying to enhance myself in every possible way. Teaching and languages are my greatest passions and I absolutely enjoy my job. So, come and join my lessons so we can explore the colorful world of the English language together.
