I am a qualified and experienced English teacher from California. I earned a Trinity CERT TESOL in July 2015 and have taught many group and individual English lessons in Prague, Czech Republic since then.
I enjoy teaching all levels but I especially love helping students with test preparation for the Cambridge exams (First, Advanced, Proficiency, and IELTS). One of my biggest strengths as a teacher is being able to identify and explain the specific grammar points that a student needs to practice in order to improve at different Cambridge exam exercises.
In individual lessons, I help students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in the context of conversation practice and I record examples of both good language and errors. It is very important to show learners that they can learn from mistakes, instead of just correcting them without explanation. My overall approach is to center teaching around each individual's goals and needs.
