I have over 2 years of experience teaching English, to all levels and ages in both academies and private classes. I am a CELTA qualified, Native British English teacher. When I started teaching, I used to use a lot of the games and worksheets given by the coursebooks, as I lacked the experience to create my own and the understanding that these are often very dry, very linear and a boring for students. I then went into creating my own games, worksheets, lesson plans, activities and warmers, and while this takes a lot more time, the results for the students have been fantastic, I have managed to really engage them on some boring grammar topics, and feel the time spent has really been worth it. I ended up running a cloud based website for my fellow teachers, to share these materials, and this has proved very successful. It seems the next logical step is to share these with everyone. Due to this success, I have been made a mentor for new teachers, helping them develop their own resources and have even created Room Escape type games with English activities, that have been used in many academies in Catalunya. I am always working, always thinking, and let me know if you require anything specific.
I try to be as engaging, interesting, funny and dynamic as possible. I like to get my students moving around, talking, debating and having fun and to do this you really have to adapt the materials you are given. I am always clearly focused on the learning aim, or target material, I just like to present it in a different manner, rather than boring my students with another gap fill, or reading comprehension. Hopefully you'll find my resources easy to use, intuitive, and well designed to engage, practice and test the specific learning aim.
