I'm an ESL instructor with three years experience, including two abroad (one in Poland, and one in Italy). While I've taught all age groups, from young learners up to adults, most of my work is with teens and young adults. My work has been largely in test preparation, specifically Trinity and Cambridge exams, but also TOEIC and TOEFL.
I like a relaxed classroom! I try to find material and activities that are interesting for my students, and I let them steer the conversation as much as possible. That way, it's more interesting for both of us!
When my school opened a new venue in a different city with a different student base, I assisted in developing a curriculum to suit our students' needs (business English). In my current position, I'm in charge of all grammar instruction for all the groups - from young learners up to adults!

I have two major passions in life: English and travel. When I graduated with my degree in English Language and Literature, I decided to put it to good use by teaching - while traveling - and I took off to Poland to teach English as a second language. I've since moved on to Italy, but I still travel and read whenever I can!
